      What we really need to know is this a problem that sky are intending to fix, is it just a mistake, or is it what sky are actually going to provide.

      As i've already said, my connection has been capped to the same 416 rate even though the sync rate as not been capped.

      There was a post somewhere that a member rang up Sky and alledgedly there were approx 1000 people effected, they were aware and were trying to sort.

      Still, that was said about the email login as well iirc.

      Sorry Dingdong cant give you any more info as none is forthcoming

      As reported by several tests using

      www.speedtest.bbmax.co.uk/

      my download speed is reliably at about 6430 kbps
      but download speed is varying between 300 and 500 kbps

      The router reports
      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 7645 kbps 764 kbps
      Line Attenuation 41.0 db 24.5 db
      Noise Margin 11.4 db 12.0 db

      As per my earlier post, my upstream sync was corrected along with a 2.5Mbps downstream cap implemented to improve reliability.

      Unfortunately the upload speed is still very poor:

      Connection Speed 2528 kbps 736 kbps
      Line Attenuation 63.5 db 31.5 db
      Noise Margin 6.8 db 13.0 db



      Thanks

      The opposite applies to me!!

      I've just checked out my stats again...
      My new downstream is 416kb !!

      lol.. your upload speed is the same as my downstream speed..
      Embarrasing...

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 416 kbps 768 kbps
      Line Attenuation 28.0 db 14.0 db
      Noise Margin 32.8 db 9.0 db

      Sky better fix it soon! >_<!
