      this isn't capped by CST as he's on Connect - this is BT either putting him on Home/Office 500, or it's now on a capped IPStream Max 512 service...

      Re: Sky Connect speed?

      I think it is possible the broken router has caused BT to put the line on a lower speed package, Home 500 or 512 as suggested. The only way this will get fixed is to get Sky to ask BT to reconfigure the line for ADSLMax. It may even mean another 10 day training period. Getting Tier 1 to understand what is wrong is the first problem

      if it is on the wrong product, and not just on a capped service, it will be another 10 day bed in...if it's already on IPStream Max it should be a quick fix...

      Re: Sky Connect speed?

      Yes Actual IP Throughput Achieved during test 375kbps is very low I would suggest
      run Skyuser tester and I find speed.io ok I have been doing the three and finding that sometimes Bt tester was different to the other 2I put it down to Bt tester being overloaded sometimes this link will show the tests and what I thought
