      You should have run a ping test to bbc.co.uk and recorded your results before making the call and compared it to what you get afterwards.

      Anyways go to CMD and ping bbc.co.uk and see what you get. I think something in the region of 25-30ms would indicate you are on the gaming profile.

      Fire off an email regarding your upload speed. Hopefully...

      just run the ping test and it's coming back at 23ms now. Hopefully that will help improve the gaming connections. As for the uploads, I'll shoot that email off and see what they say.

      Yh mate 23ms is definitely on the gaming profile. I get 22ms and I know my max delays are set to 8.

      23ms is very good for sky
      Nevermind 22ms

      With delays set to 8.0 its usually around 28ms
      with broadcom chipsets there seems to be some play
      depending on the interleave depth it handshaked at

      When i used a broadcom chipset and sometimes when it synced in at
      64 interleave depth the delays where 5.75
      resulting in around 22ms ping to bbc

      With an interleave Depth of 320 delays would be 8.00

      This isnt something sky set its part of the handshake
      I used to force a max interleave depth of 96 though on my modem
      Basicly the modem informs the dlsam that it doesnt want to handshake
      over a 96 interleave depth

      Hi

      I read with interest the bit about gamer profile. Frustration at my gaming (delays).

      I ran ping to bbc, got average of 33ms, but contacted sky, got a young lady on the line, who did a test, then said i was switched to gamer profile. my average is 34ms

      regrets, I've had a few..etc frankie sang it well

      Sorry for dragging this up, but all I would need to do is call Sky and ask to be moved onto the gamer profile?
