New FTTC install


[link to this post]
 
Hi everyone.

I have just had sky fibre installed this morning after a long long wait.

My estimated speed is 60.7 down and upto 20 up so I went with the sky 40/10 package thinking those speeds would be achievable

Speed tests are floating around the 25 down and 8 up mark. Is there a chance my speed could increase closer to the 40 or is it likely to stay at 25

Thanks for any help

The Sky Hub what speeds does it report for the connection speed?

The authentication filters back the speeds to the router.

Connected via wireless, or direct via ethernet ?

Sounds a little cheeky, but what OS is your machine, and how old is it ?

My crusty old XP machine would never show a download of over 14 meg on FTTC, have had a few other posters on here with similar issues.

Mine was resolved by splashing out on a new desktop !

My XP laptop easily takes 60Mbps on my FTTC line and will run for hours at that rate!

On a LAN transfer it can peak at 700 Mbps!

Even my Win98SE Toshiba can do the 60Mbps

It's possible you are connected to an exchange that suffers from the infamous half-speed download issue.

Sky rolled out a patch last week that was supposed to fix the problem, which it did for some but for others it didn't and in some cases it halved the speed again.

I didn't say all of 'em ! smile

According to the OP's replies, the sync rate looks OK, could this be congestion at ISP level maybe ?

Because the sky hub is showing a sync of 40/10 does this mean the connection is ok?
