Sky's ADSL line management kicks in
Sky have now started to perform their ADSL line management on some 300,000 lines.
For some it will mean a speed decrease if the line is misconfigured. The process is going to be automatic and will continue across the entire network eventually.
Tonight we have been told unofficially that this has in fact started at 2am this morning.
The logic behind this exercise, is that it would give the End User a more stable broadband experience, therefore getting the best out of that User's Broadband Connection.
It would appear that Sky are actually resetting User's connections to ADSL2+ and we have seen various reports of the upload speeds actually over the maximum that the Sky Max package should actually provide. Wheteher or not Sky readjust this remains to be seen.
Today, we have seen our members report similar stories.
