      Hi Again,

      WOW! Well I never knew ! I tested my speed after midnight and it went from just over 1000 mb/s upload to almost 3500 mb/s !! What's going on? Was this in some tiny smallprint when I signed up or is this normal? I don't live in the middle of nowhere - only just north of Leeds!

      I tested the wireless connection in the kitchen again and after changing the frequency of the router to 6 (from auto) it seemed to work at about 12 mb/s (I get 54 upstairs where the router is).

      This is all a bit too hard for my brain to grasp . Oh I asked Sky about getting a 300 MB/S Router - they couldn't help and didn't seem keen on the idea.

      With my connection would I be wasting my time upgrading?

      I had been wondering why I was so rubbish at online games - guess it's the speed thing again??

      Thanks for all your advice.
      Max

      Hi I am sorry but the connect package is a bt re-badged max product and is not part of the Sky LLU products so there is no upgrade. Your exchange is it Leeds Westgate Dxa if you want to look at the exchange here a link SamKnows Broadband - Availability - Exchange Search you can run a bt test from Bt Updated Speed Tester a good idea is to run a test when the line is not being traffic shaped. Then a test between 5pm and Midnight to see the difference. Here`s a link about the connect package help (Unofficial) FAQ - Sky Connect Users connect is no good for on line games I hope this has given you some information on the connect package.

      Hi Again,

      Guess what...

      No signal downstairs again today!! It was OK last night around 10:00pm.

      So I E-Mailed Sky again - possibly with a view to cancelling?

      I checked the exchanges - thanks! Only possible to connect to one ADSL and ADSL Max and No other operators in the area so I guess i can't cancel?

      Thanks for any ideas,

      Max007
