Moving from Sky Connect to TT


[link to this post]
 
Hi everyone, please would you be able to offer some advice?

I currently have Sky Connect, I get around 5mb during the day and less than 1mb at peak times. I spoke to Sky support who are very helpful but tell me that it is BT's fault and the Sky dedicated network is not available at my exchange. I have checked the exchange and it appears that TT has their own equipment. So, should I consider moving to TT to get constant speeds / better speeds at peak time?

Hi, thanks for reply.

exchange = moreton in marsh

I also notice that TT provide a 'business service' as I rely on broadband at home for work, should I take this or their 'home' service?

ADSL2+ from TalkTalk should run a lot faster that 5 Meg you see now,

Normal speed range at 25dB attenuation is 15550 Kbps to 18250 Kbps

While the BT link is what slows you down, Sky could improve things by paying BT for more capacity, but that would mean putting price of the product up
