      Well I noticed my net was down this morning
      was down for 30 mins plus. When I phoned sky, by chance it came back on at the increase speed of 40/10

      Apparently they are regrading at 500 ish a day and all new connections get the new speed.

      I have put it down to the line being re profiled but who knows

      John

      IPlayer Result

      My Ping has also returned to what it was when I was connected on 27/04

      Sky Fibre Unlimited - Free Upload Increase As From July For All Customers-ping-05-july.jpg

      It lasted 9 weeks before suddenly dropping last time, so I'll see how long it lasts this time round

      I'm happy for you guys who got the upgrade this morning.

      It's always nice when you get something for nothing.
      Keeps us all smiling

      I'm just as pleased with my ping time's going back to how they where, when I first got my install too.
      Now, I'm planing on keeping it longer than 6 weeks this time

      On another unrelated thread I started about my brother in law having a problem install, where the bto guy used the old Rj11 cable from the old ADSL setup, we found out, if you use the better quality bto Rj11 cable, in some cases, it can give you a speed boast of up to 2mbps, if your on fibre pro.

      I've just ordered the shortest best quality Rj11 cable I can find, it's 30cm.

      Can't do any harm to try.
      I Won't see a speed boost on download but I'm hoping it might give me a little upload boost, I'm syncing at 9569 . At the very least, I'm hoping it will keep my line nice and healthy.

      There was 2 I had my eye on. One on ebay and the other on Amazon. I went for the one on ebay.
      Sorry I can't send you a link but I'm on my phone.
      If you type in 30cm Rj11 lead or cable, you should see it. It's the one made by belkin.
      It wasn't that dear either.
      I should have it today or tomorrow if you want to hang tight and I will update you if I see an improvement.

      Update.

      Got the lead and I have seen a slight improvement on upload speed and ping times.
      Nothing major, but the plan was to make my line more stable so interleaving doesn't kick in again.
      Might not be worth peoples time for the sake of 50 kbps upload increase and 2ms shaved of my ping but it was worth a shot, and I hope it keeps my line in good shape.

      After about 2 hours downtime (Sky Fibre and Talk) this afternoon on the Horsham exchange, I am now on 40/10. Excellent!!

      Didn't notice any downtime but found out by accident (when my network meter was showing 8.4Mbit upload) that I got changed from 40/2 to 40/10 on Wednesday. The same day I also got the new EPG on my Sky HD box too. Happy camper!
