Sky Broadband Unlimited Speeds?


[link to this post]
 
I've recently downgraded from Sky Fibre Unlimited -to- Sky Broadband Unlimited.

Sky advertise the Broadband Unlimited download speed of up to 16Mbps but I'm on DAY 6 of line training and already my line is synced at 18Mbps (down) and 1.3Mbps (up), what are the speeds for this service inc. both download and upload?

Many thanks in advance smile

Up to 24 meg down, 16 meg is advertised to comply with regulations.

What exactly is your upload speed in kbps? 1.3 meg is rare, most people rarely see anything above 1.15 meg.

Up to 24 Meg & about 1.3 Meg respectively for the ADSL2+ technology.

However ISPs are only allowed by the regulators, OFCOM & ASA, to advertise speeds up to what at least 10% of their custs get. Hence you often see the adverts with 'Up to 16 Meg'.

1999: Freeserve 48K Dial-Up => 2005: Wanadoo 1 Meg BB => 2007: Orange 2 Meg BB => 2008: Orange 8 Meg LLU => 2010: Orange 16 Meg LLU => 2011: Orange 20 Meg WBC

Nice upload speed, perhaps Sky have tweaked/improved the line profiles.

This time around, my upload speed is better than it was previously on Sky Broadband Unlimited.

Previous Upload Speed (BBUnlimited): 916 kbps

Currently I'm on DAY06 of line training so the upload speed of 1317 is subject to change.

Speed in both directions is subject to change for evermore.

True, although the upper limit of my own upload speed is set by Sky, I currently have 1.15 meg and plenty of spare NM above 6 dB.

Sky have tweaked something because my speeds are a lot better this time around than previously and I've not needed to tweak my SNR this time smile

Down: 21Mbps
Up: 1.3Mbps

Not far off my fibre speeds of 25Mbps max...

I might request another line testing run. However I suspect this stuff is dependant on firmware upgrades at the exchange so perhaps it's just a case of waiting.
