      Re: Sky Max users - What's your highest download speed?

      My connection is about the same 1.5 to 1.6MB/sec after I have modified all Network Adaptors on all my PCs and Laptops that I own at the moment using SG TCP Optimizer, moving the Connection Speed slider to maximum of 20000Kbps, even I get 15.3MB with line attenuation of 31 db!

      Even now, I just testing out the download rate by downloading 1GB file from thinkbroadband.com web site and its still going around between 1.5 & 1.6MB/sec but mostly its 1.6MB/sec, even with using about 10 tabs on Mozilla Firefox, plus both MSN & Yahoo Messenger all running at the same time!!

      Got this result in the first few days of Sky testing the line. They've stuck me on 12Mb now!
      Speedtest.net is a joke, there is no way your results are accurate.

      You would be right!

      You should be getting 20mb or very near to it. Ring them again!!!
