      there's nothing in stats to suggest it'll be have done - the default is 32 so not sure what the mention of 64s is above...

      best bet is to call this evening and have them do it whilst you wait so you can check it immediately...

      You sure about that m8 ? Most stats posted prior to having delays lowered seem to be 64 / 8

      Re: Router stats ~Understanding Max Delays~

      After the reset of the equipment my upload delays ? < if thats the right thing were talking about >

      went from 4 to 8 ... so maybe they increased my upload max delays when i asked for it, and now they reset stuff its back to default ?

      Re: Router stats ~Understanding Max Delays~

      Last question.

      I have allgedly had my max delays reduced to 8 according to sky.

      My upstream d has always been 8 and my downstream has always been 64.

      So my question is which one of these ( if any ) reduces your ping times.. the upstream or downstream depth or delay?

      as mine shows d . 64 for downstream and d . 8 for upstream.

      As if its the downstream then sky have touched nothing and asking for this to be reduced has been as waste of time.

      Thanks in advance.

      Re: Router stats ~Understanding Max Delays~

      There's a bit of confusion here about the 'D' statistic. This isn't the maximum delay value, it's the interleave depth. Sky set a maximum delay and the exchange equipment sets the interleave depth necessary to achieve that maximum delay with the current sync speed.

      Slower connections will end up having to use a lower interleave depth to achieve the same maximum delay value, which is why different people end up with different interleave depths.

      Re: Router stats ~Understanding Max Delays~

      Thanks for the clarification.

      So theres no way of knowing if the max delays have been set at all...

      And if my delays have been set to 8 and i still ping the exact same as i did on default as i do with 8... my max delays for an already decent ping to bbc of 26ms cannot ever be improved on unless i move to someone like Be* and am put on fastpath?

      Correct me if i am wrong but i thought max delays improved all pings.

      Thanks again for your informative post.
