before you get onto sky again (wich will be a pain for you and also for the person at the other end if you are still upset;)) you may have been capped or auto regraded, but it could be just the router syncing at the low rate (due to a noisey line
can we just go over a few things, your line does have errors, which are not that bad but the stats only cover a very short time. how are you connecting the router, is it plugged into a exstension/master/test socket ?
BTmaster socket>filter>internet cable(grey) >routor>yellow cable> pc then the other part is http://www.office365.co.uk/im/pim/166669.jpg which sky gave us when they installed the sky box upstair's. wich the wire goes straight into it. then the phone line enter's it and so does the sky + downstairs. just in case your lost with the last bit. in that pic its got two slots both are filled with the home phone and the sky+ box then a wire is built in the top for upstairs sky box.
i got a real noisy phone line so i gona phone tech support, while im there what else should i do? i got high ping for my 360 i heard people asking for tier3? but thanks ALOT for your help people:wink:
(if after reading above you feel sleepy, please feel free to take a nap ;))
also have a look at the cabling and faceplate help a filtered face plate is great, and you would not have to use any external filters
before you phone sky, have you tried the test socket ?
you have completly lost with me with that line? :confused:Quote:
couldnt hear the chinese woman trying to help me with my low MEG. she had no clue what so ever she was I KNOW UNDERSTAND i wanted to put the phone down but thought no im gona be polite
but glad to hear you are chilled out (was it that warm milk earlier;))
I have to admit that if English wasn't my first language, someone phoning up to complain about their "low meg" might confuse me too. Perhaps you should have complained about your "low connection speed".
But I do wish companies wouldn't chose these calls centres based in countries where English isn't an official language. I tend to find Indian call centres OK, but that's because they're usually staffed by middle-class graduates who have grown up speaking English (albeit in a Indian accent). I don't have a problem with Indian English because I've spent so many years working alongside Indians, and it's just a matter of getting used to it - rather like getting used to a Geordie accent really.
When I phone my mobile phone company's customer service centre, on the other hand, I get the impression that they only understand about 50% of what I'm saying to them. Judging by their accents (and their excessive, seemingly insincere politeness), I'd say they are probably based in the Phillipines.
It certainly looks like you (the OP) are on Connect, the upload speed suggests this. However there are a few strange upload speeds being posted, so that is not 100% for sure.
Apart from checking your details on MySky there are two other things you can do 1) Go to THIS site and do a speed test, you will need your phone number and your hidden router username. If the test fails consistently, you are on an LLU line, ie MAX. If the test completes, then you are on Connect.
2) Go HERE and check the orders on your Landline, not the Broadband. You will need to register if you have not already done so and will need your account number from a statement. You should see reference to LLU in the details and if it is shown as completed, you will be on Max.
