UK Online > Sky = 12MB down to 6MB :(


[link to this post]
 
I was happily surfing at around 12MB down on UK online - switched to Sky broadband (unlitmied package) and am now at hald the speed at arround 6MB down.

I kept the same router and have not adjusted anything at my end. Initalliy I was at 12MB on sky to but over the past 2 weeks I've noticed I'm down to 6MB.

Have checked everything my end which seems fine. Has anyone got advice on how I should approach sky about this issue? Or is it even an issue? Have they limited my speed? frown

Try using supplied router and post stats from that.

Was Eclipse Home Option 1 & VM 2Mb
Now O2 standard

Sound like their DLM which ukonline never used, has increased the noise margin for whatever the reason, yes i would be onto sky about it without any doubt, but before you call them plug in the sky supplied router, as they will be funny with you if you ain't using their garbage one , once the dlm or what ever has been changed and you get your 12mb back then use your router again

just a thought but if you have been using a netgear Dg/D834 gt & v4 you could lower the snr yourself, either by telnet cmd or using the dg team firmware, & should you see a dg834 v5 (not breakable) going cheap, & you are still smpf (adsl only llu), you may get an even better sync using that as it has a conexant chip a v good match for the old easynet dslams, (dg834v4 or gt broadcom chipped)

Just ask them to remove DLM. They normally do it no questions asked...

thanks for the replies - i'll get my sky router on the go next week and see if that helps - if not a call to sky - will the monkey's even know what i'm on about if I ask them to turn of DLM?

The overseas based support the 1st you get to speak to may well not, prob want you to clear cookies change filters,restart pc, do the funky chicken,lol but if you get the next tier i think 2, they will know what it is , but i have seem reports that it automatically can re enable it's self again, bring back ukonline, non of this nonsense

Would this be the same as asking the for fast path ?? i hear so many people say they do this and that yet hardly find anyone that has had it done.

I read its a sackable offense for a sky rep to put you on fast path, hence the rarity.

I dont know if the limitation is just for adsl2+ or for adsl1 and adsl2+.
