      Am I being limited?

      Hello. Had Sky max Broadband for about 5 weeks now. At first it connected at different speeds when i needed to reboot, which was often. The reboots are less now but each time it connects at 8096, no variation. Just a coincidence or do others always connect at the same speed?

      @Tidosho

      8096 is a typical Sky capped figure.

      Thanks for the reply. Is there normally a reason for this? I don't download an excessive amount.

      No, Sky don't as far as I know cap to limit download. They cap to reduce line errors, though its not always entirely obvious that they do this with justification.
