Request for BQM on slow Sky exchanges


[link to this post]
 
Had seen a few people moaning about speeds, and guessed it was exchange links, but seems Sky has identified a number of exchanges now

http://helpforum.sky.com/t5/Sky-Broadband-Setup-Cabl...

If anyone on those exchanges has BQM it would be good to have a link to them. One or two may get used in the news to illustrate the issues.

Doesn't your monitor only work with static IP addresses? As far as I know Sky only offer dynamic.

To add. I have all of the issues which this problem is causing. My exchange isn't listed on that list however I do know that my exchange is daisy chained to several other exchanges before it hits the big backhaul pipe.

If your exchange isn't listed but you have the problems I guess it might be daisy chained to a problematic exchange.

Just a thought.

You can setup the monitor and provided you do not turn the router off and that the router doesn't drop sync it will work. I'm going to set it up.

There are a couple of Wrexham area exchanges in the list, I'm on the Wrexham town exchange, which isn't on the list, My ping and jitter are high. I can't watch iplayer or any streaming, it buffers every few seconds.

Hope one of the other exchanges getting more backhaul helps me.

My exchange is not on the list but in December it went down from 1.7MBs to 0.8MBs and has stayed down ever since.

None of them are anywhere near me (I'm in Hampshire) but my speed has still been down at 0.8MBs since some when in December instead of the usual 1.7MBs.

The FB that TBB use now supports hostnames instead of just IPs, so it could be an idea to support dyn-dns like host names for people on an ISP with a dynamic IP.
