      Cool Re: Sky Broadband Max - New Faster Speeds?

      Hey, I posted this on digital spy so in case you missed it:

      Sky Broadband Unlimited (MAX) is changing to up to 20 Mbit download and 1.3 Mbit upload from next week.

      Sky Broadband Everyday (MID) is changing to up to 10 Mbit download and 600 Kbit upload but with a reduction in usage cap to 10 Gb from next week.

      also stated that Sky broadband Base, Everyday and Connect users would be changed to a 3 month trial of McAfee Internet security and that only Unlimited would keep the 12 months free trial of it.

      Best regards

      bubblegun

      bubblegun,

      There does seem to be... ermm... a little disbelief of the validity of your info over on Digital Spy. I guess we'll know when we know.

      stevvi, there does indeed.
      Can a Sky employee check Chordiant to see if this information is there (bubblegun says it's under the 'Information Tab'?

      Sky Broadband Everyday (MID) is changing to up to 10 Mbit download and 600 Kbit upload but with a reduction in usage cap to 10 Gb from next week.
      This would disadvantage Mid users so would require 30 days notice and the right to leave without penalty, if it is true. Many will be saying bye-bye Sky, Hello O2

      Andy,
      If there is an increase it will only effect your Upload, as your download is not high enough to benefit.

      I am aware of this, i am only interested in my upload speed increasing as i have now got the best out of my downstream speed i now just want my upload speed maxed out. Just to show stats at the moment.

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 10239 kbps 796 kbps
      Line Attenuation 40.0 db 23.5 db
      Noise Margin 9.8 db 13.0 db

      Do you think i will get the full 1.3mb on the upload, looking at the current stats.

      I don't really know Andy, we will not know what is going to happen until they actually do the upgrade. You are getting a good upload at the moment so there is a good chance you will get the full whack.

      Line Attenuation 29.5 db 12.8 db
      Noise Margin 7.2 db 14.5 db

      Should I get 1.3mbps up too? Will Sky reset download speed caps on lines if this comes into effect?

      If your downstream line is capped at the moment you are unlikely to get a faster download, but it is very likely your upload will increase. By how much, I don't think anyone could say at the moment.
