Sky & IPv6


[link to this post]
 
Does anyone know if Sky issues IPv6 addresses or are there any plans to rollout IPv6 addresses?

It has been discussed many of times but with no clear answer.

Just another quick question, Sky have a dedicated webpage that displays your network speed. The results given were based on your current sync rate but it seems that this has changed, what is this rate based on now?

Sky Broadband/Fibre Speed-Finder

My current line sync;
Line Rate - Upstream (Kbps): 5127
Line Rate - Downstream (Kbps): 27885

Speed-Finder Results;
Download Speed: 40 Mbps
Upload Speed: 10 Mbps

Many thanks in advance, have a great day.

Having checked again, the Speed-Finder page shows;

Broadband speed results to your Sky Hub

Download Speed: 0.4 Mbps
Upload Speed: 0.3 Mbps

Even more confused now...

Yes, they are rolling it out: http://www.ispreview.co.uk/index.php/2016/01/uk-isp-...

It's just a static display... I get exactly the same result. Sky are doing themselves no favours!

Got a function?
We've got it covered!

I don't understand why they changed it from what worked previously.

Before, it would show your sync rate (rounded off). This would save me time as I wouldn't need to login to my router, enter my username/pass etc.

They should have left it, as it was.

Thanks for letting me know...

For me it says:

Download Speed: 18.5 Mbps
Upload Speed: 0.8 Mbps

I'm using a BT Home Hub on BT so it's definitely not able to access any of my line stats. Also, my down synch is only 14.2 meg.

No need to access router to get line stats, the DSLAM will report this to Sky particularly easy for their own ADSL2+ LLU services.

I had not seen that page before; interesting - but...

It shows "Broadband speed results to your Sky Hub" = 5.1/0.8 Mbps.

A tbb speedtest a few minutes ago showed 25.3/4.8 Mbps.

It clearly cannot be reading current data from the DSLAM, and doesn't know we have had an FTTC connection since 2012.
