hum I think sky are offering it or higher we don't know the actual speed for upload some are saying 8mb some are saying 2mb we will have to wait and see hehe.
They are perhaps playing it safe with speeds until things have settled down a bit, as this will be on Sky's own network and unlimited usage is being offered.
You may also recall Sky Broadband Max originally had a top speed of 16 meg down/768k up, even though it was possible to go faster.
I dare say a non-traffic managed 40mb Sky connection would be for the most part just as good as Virgin or BT's faster offerings - although it would be nice to have a faster upload speed too.
Sky will be offering a 2Mbit upload and the reason for a 2Mbit upload is cost, an 8Mbit upload costs more off BTO.
The DLM however does recover the line much quicker though, BTO seem to have it a little bit more sorted than BTW did with ADSL.
One last thing is no matter what anyone tells you there is no 10 training period with fibre either, the DLM will deside what it is going to do within 24 hours and only then if you have has some seriously bad line conditions. It will open the profile as wide as it can from the off and if your line works then thats it done and dusted.
That's how it used to be with Sky in the good old days.:(Quote:
