      bandwidth throttling....

      hi

      Has bandwidth throttling been implemented?

      I have Max product which has been running at 6kbits/s since mid september without issue

      Since yesterday morning I have noticed throughput has changed from ~670kbyte/s to ~200kbyte/s. This has been the case last night and first thing this morning.

      I don't hammer my connection so am unlikely to be hitting the FUP.

      Anybody else seen the prob?

      /S

      Hello

      I could probably use anywhere between 100GB and 500GB a month depending on what is avaiable at the time .

      To be honest I agree with whoever said that 'unlimited should mean unlimited'.

      Oh yeah it's also kinda sucky that there isn't no newsgroups, but hey, I wasn't expecting that!

      EDIT: bart1 what you connected at? http://admin:sky@192.168.0.1/ and look for 'DownStream Connection Speed'. I've this problem all the time, it could be a faulty power cable near-by (with a transformer inside), an actual fault in the router/modem cable or a wireless phone/microwave etc.

      Hi

      FUP on MAX - Revised figures?

      You will need to download and install a piece of software, Sky do not tell you or provide any figures for you to keep an eye on.

      Says who?? A quick scan here shows people claiming 309gb, 350gb and 600gb DL in a month without a peep from Sky. No email, nothing.

      Personally I would feel happier KNOWING a proper limit so I can make sure I behave. As a Pusnet user I learned to live with a 100gb limit. If Sky said 100gb and unlimited from midnight to 8am (or whatever) then I'd learn to live with that too.

      KNOWING is what we need. Vague "whatever we think this week is excessive" statements help no-one and just promote fear and uncertainty.
