      The option is here when you click on setting at the top right hand corner of the website. I think you need to have a minimum of 10 posts before you can edit it, I'll double check.

      Unfortunately you do not currently have enough posts to qualify.

      To qualify you need a minimum of 10 posts and the server will then take around an hour of so to update your profile to allow it.

      Sounds great! Your DL speed was compararable with mine. Okay, the numbers speak for themselves...... but what does it actually feel like, does that huge increase actually improve your browsing and downloading speed?

      I have found the most noticeable improvement to be seen when downloading, especially say when renting a movie or using Catch Up TV on Sky+HD. Available to start within a couple of seconds, complete download in a few minutes.

      Even on an ADSL connection there have been noticeable improvements to the On Demand section.

      Whether Sky has improved the bandwidth available for the servers or enabled the content to be played sooner, I don't know. Perhaps both have been tweaked.

      For myself, most On Demand downloads are available to start viewing within a minute.
