      Sky Broadband Max
      Order Date - 3rd June 2008
      New Install
      Router Arrived - 9th June
      Connection Due - 12th June
      Actually Connected - 12th June
      Down speed - ~ 2900 kbps
      Up speed - 416 kbps
      Distance from exchange: 800 metres

      Outcome: Probably going to regrade to Mid down the atrocious speeds, seems there's not much I can do about it as I'm in a block of flats!

      I was told I'd get 5500 from sky and I did.

      Then I plugged it into the master socket

      Connection Speed 8096 kbps 384 kbps
      Line Attenuation 37.0 db 21.5 db
      Noise Margin 10.3 db 14.0 db



      Need to get my max delays sorted. I'm gonna upgrade to max an see what happens if theres no change in connection speed when that gets sorted.

      This thread has not been updated in awhile.

      Order Date: 1/10/2008 (*)
      Package: Connect (@ 5/month)
      New Connection: No. Migration from Pipex
      Router Arrived: 21/10/2008
      Connection Due: 27/10/2008
      Actually Connected: 27/10/2008 (12:32PM GMT)
      Up sync speed: 2944 kbps
      Down sync speed: 448 kbps
      Distance from the exchange: 1.56 kilometres

      (*) I ordered sky Talk + Line rental at the same time, therefore, I had to wait for my sky line to be activated before my sky broadband order could be started.

      Re: Activated now then please post info here

      Order Date: 11/12/08
      Package: Mid
      New Connection: No. Migration from Orange
      Router Arrived: 16/12/2008
      Connection Due: 23/12/2008 (router proved to be faulty and was told another to be sent, received 30/12/08)
      Actually Connected: 30/12/2008 6pm
      Up sync speed: 3445 kbps
      Down sync speed: 292 kbps
      Distance from the exchange: 1 mile

      Overall happy so far even after having no internet for 1 week due to the first router Sky sent being faulty. It's a shame there's no way to check the router before the connection date to save this time. Speeds about 500mbps faster than Orange.
