Yea would be nice to have more on the upload side, not quite sure what I would get with someone like Be, probably close to 2Mbit. But at the end of the day, I've got limited options at the exchange and you get what you pay for....

Still a happy camper though, last week I was getting a 15meg sync smile

On standard uncapped ADSL2+ (Annex A) you'd get 1.4 meg, about 18% more speed upstream. It's a shame this is purely down to pointless upstream capping by Sky, but oh well.

You might have to call a couple of times to get someone who will do this for you. I had the issue where my line is able to get 19.4mb but they would not allow it above 18mb in the end the 1lst line support guy spoke to his manager who got someone above him to remove all restrictions on my line smile

Hm interesting, I guess you could try a "broadband/technical complaint" http://www.sky.com/helpcentre/complaints-code/

Its via email and a little slow but they should be able to help. Be as detailed as possible if emailing them.

Also regards calling them I've actually found calling them at night (say around 11PM/1AM) to be pretty good, seems the staff are more willing to try stuff.
