      Re: Say Hello

      hi skyuser forums, I just joined the forums today.

      I'm a freelance graphic designer, working from home, signed up to sky MAX about a week or so ago. All going smoothly - apart from experiencing shockingly erratic download speeds!

      My router is showing an adsl line speed of just over 11 mbit/s which I thought was quite respectable. But my download speeds (according to speedtest.net) over the last two days have gone from 0.06 (yes! - seriously - I got that last night about 11pm. The web was practically unusable) up to my best which is 9.42 (got that mid morning today).

      I read on a forum somewhere that sky MAX is supposed to have a contention ration of 33 to 1, which can't explain the ridiculously low 0.06. I'm guessing it's just heavy traffic on sky's backbone routers or something, which was very disappointing.

      Anyone else experienced such low speeds on sky MAX?

      cheers

      Re: Say Hello

      Hi everyone,
      I've just joined, largely because I have a problem with Sky and I hope one you knowledgeable types can help me out!!

      The wife and I were with Virgin, but moved recently and so had to get Sky as that was the only option. We went for the whole package, which is fine on the whole but of course there have been 'teething problems' which I'm going to post about shortly..

      However, it's not all bad - I enjoy the extra HD content! This looks like a busy community, so I hope to glean more information as I browse around on all sorts of Skyness.. Thanks for having me, I promise not to trash the place. :-)

      Re: Say Hello

      Hi,

      This might sound silly but I am completely new to sky. I have ordered HD ready tv and my partner has got sky digi box.I hope my hd tv will work with sky digibox.I am wondering that if I will have to buy sky hd box then will I have to connect it to my phone line. Mind you I am not a subcriber.
