      Holy C**p! Getting 18 meg on sky!!

      Hey,
      Ive been with sky for a few months now and had speeds around 13meg but latley the internet was messing up and disconnecting and so was the phone, in the end we lost connection alltogether. So I decided to go into my master socket and then removed the orange wire and cut it a bit(before it was falling apart and hanging by a thread) and placed it back on and now my speeds have increased so much I get speed results faster than my sync?? The dslzone website only reaches 15 meg but its almost my full sync speed!

      Here is some results!! :

      Namesco BroadbandMax Bandwidth speedtest | Test your ADSL connection speed



      Maybe Sky are thinking of upgrading our speeds?

      we sometimes get people getting 900KB/sec on an 8mbps connection so not unheard of - u just have a very good connection it would seem

      Your downLOAD/upLOAD rate will be anything from 70-80% of your downSTREAM/upSTREAM sync rate, so 10657 DL for 12329 DS is about right as its 86%!!
