Erm, thanks?

Morning all,
I've been on Sky Unlimited for about 4 months now and after the line training was done on my line I was set at about 15meg. Realised the other day that my speed has increased since then and I am now at full 20meg. Getting over 2Mb a second download from Usenet.

Nice one Sky!

Surely 2Mb on a 20Mb isnt very good?

Guessing it should be 2MB/s rather than 2Mb/s in which case that is not bad for a 20Mb/s line.

Yes, sorry for messing the units up but yes, it would be 2MB/s.
I was just amazed that the speed was increased by Sky without me doing anything!

Common mistake with the units (we understood what you meant).

And this is one of the benefits of LLU in that they seem to adjust more easily to changes on the line. If only I could get my upstream a little higher I would be happy (on Be I got full whack but am limited to about 800Kbps on Sky due to the relatively high SNR target they use).
