      Re: Sky Broadband Max - New Faster Speeds?

      My story is i had sky for a year was on mid package told by bt i would only get 3.5 meg down my line. In peak hours i would only get 1meg and if i was lucky in off peak hour i would get 2.5meg. i had 8 router from sky alway when you ring up said there a problem with your router we will sent out a new one. as of alway call start off with how is ur bb connteced oh master socket all that. cost 10a min to ring sky up. Half the time they will put me hold wait for 1hr once. October last yr i left sky i was happy i move to bethere.co.uk. When they told me i could get my full 8mb i was so happy no cap. if i have a problem its solve within mins. To call be up is free. I would say sky is worser then VM. VM might take a lil more time with a call out but sky go on and on. Oh yh forgot they alway ask me to chaneg the micro fillter every time i call sky up. I dnt know about anyone else but sky was just a nitghtmare. They should just stick to tv

      My exchange has just switched to 21c, I'm on around 5 megs.

      Doubt I will see a speed increase will I, I'm more interested in fibre to the cabinet.

      I don't know how many times it has been mentioned but if you are on LLU, 21CN will have no effect whatsoever on your connection. In fact until the BT exchange is upgraded to allow WBC it will not have any effect on broadband at all. Even then, the only Sky users who may be effected are those on Connect. Further info - BT Wholesale : Wholesale Broadband Connect (WBC)

      Your story sounds more like a sales pitch for your employer, or preferred ISP

      Even if your story had truth to it, people forget the amount of information about your line that Sky/ISP have access to - they can look at your line and see if your using an internal extension that's causing issues, how many drop outs you have, how long you've had sync for, etc etc and in any case, if you have an issue with a ADSL broadband, why would you move to another ADSL provider - doesn't make sense (especially if you'd had more than one replacement router) - the issue would appear to be at your end, or on your line and any company churning out 8 routers would be plain silly and expensive for them - would they still want you as a customer?

      Re: Sky Broadband Max - New Faster Speeds?

      ... ... ...back on topic, can someone let me know how my line looks please?

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 14697 kbps 764 kbps
      Line Attenuation 29.0 db 16.0 db
      Noise Margin 7.3 db 16.5 db

      Could I get anything near the 1.3Mb upload that is going to be available when they changeover the Unlimited (Max) package?

      Cheers
