ADSL2+ uplink speed: 1.3 or 1 Mbps? (Sky LLU)


[link to this post]
 
LLU ADSL2+ users: What uplink speed do you get?

Does Sky cap at 1 Mb/s, like TalkTalk, or can it do the full 1.3 Mb/s if the line is good?

3 km line on THTG: 18/1 Mb/s with Pulse8

When I was with Be I got 1.4Mb/s upload synch but with sky it's dropped to 1.1Mb/s. ymmv depending on your exchange and router chipset.

In reply to a post by richi:

When I was with TalkTalk I was capped to 500 Kbps. Only when I moved supplier I found that my line can easily do 800-900.

My talktalk line was never capped in this way?

This is my stats from my talktalk line before they activated fibre:

Sky LLU has a max upload of 1.3Mbps, they don't use Annex M to offer anything higher.

There are also lots of people having issues whereby Sky's DLM has a profile which caps the upload at 799kbps for "stability" reasons, even where it's been stable for months on end at higher speeds.

Greetings

Sky's DLM system will profile to a max of 2.5Mbps
Now this will require a router that supports Annex-M,
Sky Hubs will not support this so the most you will get on that router will be 1.3Mbps.

Thanks, Steven.

My line goes live in a couple of days. My modem does do Annex-M. Let's see how it goes...

Fingers crossed

Have to say I changed to a netgear I had been sent for testing but that seems not to support Annex-M
Also should point out that with the 2.5Mbps some lines are very unstable due to max delays being 1ms among other things, however my line is rock solid ( yes I am only on 1.3Mbps up but I have seen others being unstable )

I wasn't aware their DLM took the upload rate as high as that. When I was on BE There I was getting 2.8Mb upload rate on 3db and near max download rate.

I thought Sky only provided 1.3Mb max.

The additional bandwidth will be handy in the interim before I move to a fibre solution.

24Mb
