Hello, I'm having a bit of bother with my unbundled Sky connection. No fibre here yet sadly as I'm on an EO line. I get sunc of around 15400 down and 1400 up.
Trouble is, I get a lot of buffering on the likes of you tube and the connection isn't being hammered, web pages take an age to load and sometimes they just don't, all in all, not a great experience.
I also have a second line (business) which has broadband from Zen. As BT have never offered adsl 2 at our exchange, this connection syncs at 8128 down and 448 up. It always goes at full tilt and is frequently quicker than the adsl2 from Sky. I have spoken to sky who tell me there is no problem and all is,fine, but it just isn't so.
Does anyone have any thought on what the issue might be? Am 6 months into contract and would love to tell them where to shove this sorry excuse for a service. When it works well, it downloads at 1.4mbps, but thats not very often. I have two wifi networks here, one for sky and one for zen. Channels in use are 1 and 12. Problems with sky are either on cable or,wireless, it doesn't matter. The sky set up has had the filter changed and it connects directly into my test socket - no extensions. Ping time for my son when he's gaming can spike to over 900ms too making it unusable for gaming.
In general how do people find sky adsl2? Is it just me having these issues as sky would have me believe? Even reset my router and trying different browsers doesn't help. In any case, when I connect my network to my zen connection, it works fine.......
Any thoughts would be great to hear or if further info required, please ask as I'm really at the end of my tether with this now, too many calls to people at sky who,really don't listen beyond their trouble shooting guide..........
