      Don't take any notice of speedtest.net for speed or especially pings. It is not very accurate.

      Thanks. I just rang sky to see about it and they put me on hold.They talked to the tech support,and they told him I was already on a max delay of 8,would this be right or are they fobbing me off.I am on a mid package and get 8 meg speed and I have never asked for my delays to be lowered or is it something DLM would have changed ? any ideas anyone ?

      sky should be able to change anything on your line and they can also suspend dlm to do this

      Your very low ping suggests they are telling the truth, eg I have not had my delay reduced and my ping to Jolt is 37ms.
