      Just upgraded to Sky Broadband Max!

      At the moment I'm on Sky Mid package getting around 6mbps, upgraded this morning to Sky max 16mbps package.

      Does anyone know how long the change over is from mid to max?

      If you are only getting 6mbs on the Mid package what is your reason for moving to the Max?

      Re: Just upgraded to Sky Broadband Max!

      Hi
      thanks for your replies.

      I assumed that the mid package I'm limited to upto 8Mbps speed and 40Gb usage

      but upgrading to Max, I then get upto 16Mbps unlimited.

      Unless I misread the info on sky broadband.

      Re: Just upgraded to Sky Broadband Max!

      sorry

      I'm totally new to LLU broadband but i thought that at mid that your line sync is limited to 8mbps and that on max your line sync is 16mbps theoretically.

      So if my line syncs at 16mbps or near it I would atleast get 10 to 11mbps.
