What's the reason behind you thinking of it? Are you dissatisfied with Sky?

You're already on LLU, aren't you? So you won't see any diff except their DLMs.

Almost certainly if you are getting more than 8 Meg connection speed. What your Sky BB package called?

As XRaySpeX suggests you already seem to be on LLU. If so, you will be unlikely to benefit from moving to TT.

You obviously know how to access your router stats... what does is say for ADSL Operation Mode?

Oh yes he will! Unlike $ky, talktalk can switch off interleaving COMPLETELY (unlike $ky's gaming profile where interleaving is still switched on, albeit on the min setting).

OP, as you won't be using P2P then you will find Talktalk brilliant. I get superb gaming pings (average 15ms), no problems using rapidshare, megaupload, video streaming sites etc. Oh and they're cheap as chips as well smile

As for support (eg to get interleaving and DLM switched off) register on talktalk forums and put the request on there...they'll do that for you, no questions asked. Actually i would put their web support on a par with the likes of AAISP, Zen, Goscomb, IDNET support staff etc. Their forum support staff are very technically minded...shame that the same can't be said about their phone support team.

When interleaving depth of 8 downstream and 4 upstream is applied, the effects of it are very minimal. Most standard connections come with 32 downstream and 16 upstream.

You're already getting above 8128kbps sync so this is obviously LLU. If you wasn't on LLU, you'd be paying more for your broadband on the Connect package, receive only 448kbps upstream and 8128kbps downstream. Sky don't do adsl2+ over BTs network.
