Migrated to Sky


[link to this post]
 
Migrated from plusnet to Sky Fibre Pro Unlimited at 12.15am this morning. So far so good!

Downstream is at 64.49Mb/s compared to 61.88Mb/s

Upstream is at 20.10Mb/s compared to18.52Mb/s but I didn't think you could get more than 18.5Mb/s after overhead etc.

DNS response has gone from 18m/s down to 4m/s.

Ping has gone from 18m/s down to 13m/s

So far pretty happy with the migration, connection has been rock solid. Bridged the SR102 rather than use the BT OR ECI modem, its nice to actually see some stats (even basic ones) for a change.

Give it a week or so and your speeds will probably go back to where you were. The DLM has probably been completely reset by the migration.

The Huawei HG612 modem "unlocked" is the best stats. The Sky router and the BT Homehub gives basic stats. Matching the modem to the DSLAM in the cabinet also helps.

Probably, who knows but I no longer have to gateway hop smile

On an ECI cab and had an ECI BT OR so any stats are a bonus!

Downstream is at 65.29Mb/s compared to 61.88Mb/s

Upstream is at 18.82Mb/s compared to18.52Mb/s.

Ping is 13ms compared to 18ms.

I did switch out the SR102 for the ECI BT OR modem though, issues with double NAT...

IME as much as I don't want to admit it, Sky's residential broadband service has been excellent - I get a full 80/20 sync on my FTTC connection with them, and it's never let me down - far better than I anticipated.

Well I don't get speed dips at peak times and I don't have to gateway hop any longer.

So I would say the speed changes are not noticeable but the consistency definitely is!

Yep, Sky FTTC is amazing, completely unlimited, low latency and reliable.
