      Anytime+ on 3meg connection?

      Hey guys, Im currently getting just over 3Mbps with Sky. Does anyone have a rough idea on how this would work with Anytime+, is it more suited to users getting the full 20mb speed.

      Is it worth me setting it up with my connection speed or am I likely to get start and stops every few seconds?

      Thank you


      Edit: Ive just realised I have foolishly posted this in the wrong section due to having different forum sections open in new tabs. sorry mods could you possibly move this

      Anytime+ downloads to the Sky+ HD STB Hard Drive.

      Once you have sufficient downloaded it will advise you that it is available to watch.

      It is not a 'live' stream.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB

      On 6Mbps, I get "available" within about 30-40s, so double that for yourself. Very acceptable.

      Go for it I'd say.

      OK programs might take longer to download than you'd really like but unless you download torrents or similar then they'll be ready soon enough. Think there all non-HD so nothing is overly large.
