      Question Calling all Max users ... am I really on the Max package ??

      Hi all,

      When I ordered Sky, I definitely said I wanted the Max package which AFAIK means LLU.

      According to a post @ ADSLGuide, if you put your phone number in here then if you are LLU the results will say

      This line has a Shared Metalic Path Facility (SMPF) on it - either the broadband or phone service utilises an LLU service while BT provides the other service normally
      I don't get this.

      If you are definitely on the Max package, can you go here, put your phone number in and tell me if you get the result above ?

      TIA for any replies.

      Regards,

      Adam Brunt

      It is possible that the database has not been updated as you were only connected recently.

      That's what I am beginning to think now.

      I am probably being overly paranoid ... I can't believe my internet BB connection is so much better than it was with Plus

      I have even sorted out an email host / domain name to make my "non access of the Portal" no longer a problem.

      You're telling me.

      P2P last night 700-800kB/s on a "medium" seeded torrent meant a 1.3GB file took 28 minutes-ish to download. On Plus, that would have been several hours for what was allegedly a similar package.

      Not saying this all due to Sky ... in fact it could be that there is a lot less contention on the LLU in my exchange then on the BT kit.
