      Just Signed Up

      Hi All

      I've just signed up for Sky Max. How long does provision normally take?

      My telephone line is new. I overheard the BT engineer who installed my line saying that the line was 700 meters from the distribution point. According to the BT Broadband checker they state I can get 5mb from an 8mb line. How much throughput (speed) will I get from Sky Max?

      Many thanks

      The distribution point is those Green Boxes (Primary Cross Connection Point) which are usually located at the entrance of an estate or the end of a street.

      under perfect conditions (line noise, attenuation etc) it would be quite easy to see you connect to the exchange at approx 16mb and to see download speeds of a probable minimum 12mb (you could possibly expect even higher)

      Thats under ideal conditions (your close distance to the exchange makes the above possible)

      you will get more replys soon

      oh just seen that post above, that could increase your distance by a fair bit, hence lowering all thoses speeds in my above post.

      Thanks for that...

      Is there any way that I can check on the status of my order?
