      Is there anyway of knowing if the speed increase has occured without rebooting the router/modem? It would suggest that for some people like above, the router will stay at 1999kbps for upload.
      I just did a speed test out of interest.
      When I found my upload had increased. I just turned the router off for 30 seconds, turned it back on and hey presto. It had synced at the 40/10 profile.

      With sky since 1997.

      Funny thing about this is asfter my pro took effect, i checked my profile speed and it hadnt updated, yet was getting the faster speeds. So i rebooted both and sync speeds then showed up correctly, 74800d 20000 u

      Just done a speed test and it says my upload speed is 8mbps. It was showing 1999 on my sky router so rebooted and now it syncing at 9569.
      I've got my ping back down to 16ms, it was 24ms.
      I'm a happy bunny at the moment

      Haha! Me too. Rebooted router to find connected at 33196 down and 8777 up. Throughput (3200) and ping (28) back to the level they had been on connection (had dropped just under 2 meg).

      No email - so thanks for the tip-off. Looks like we do have to reboot router to get the new speeds to register.

      btw I was one of the first to get fibre 27th April.

      Whooooo HOOOO! I just got a 1/4 way through reading this and checked my modem I've been upgraded!!!

      FYI - I was a trialist and was connected on the 2nd March ish so they could be rolling out from 1st to last? I'm sure I got it shortly after Andrew

      Rebooted the router and now:

      Modem
      Modem Status Connected
      DownStream Connection Speed 39997 kbps
      UpStream Connection Speed 7624 kbps


      My download speed has also gone back up to 39997 and my ping to:

      ping bbc.co.uk

      Pinging bbc.co.uk [212.58.241.131] with 32 bytes of data:
      Reply from 212.58.241.131: bytes=32 time=9ms TTL=247
      Reply from 212.58.241.131: bytes=32 time=8ms TTL=247
      Reply from 212.58.241.131: bytes=32 time=9ms TTL=247
      Reply from 212.58.241.131: bytes=32 time=9ms TTL=247

      Ping statistics for 212.58.241.131:
      Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
      Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
      Minimum = 8ms, Maximum = 9ms, Average = 8ms


      Hopefully with the combo of my line being sorted before and this re-grade it will stick with it. My modem showed being up about 37120 seconds so lets hope all is well.

      Im soooo happy


      EDIT :- Sky User speed tester

      04 July, 2012 14:11:52 37776 Kbps 5755 Kbps

      04 July, 2012 14:13:14 37768 Kbps 5826 Kbps

      Sweet, just checked and i've already been upgraded. I was on trial to, not sure if it will have much to do with rollout of the upgrade though.
