I have just had sky tv installed and it needs to be connected to our phone line, I was worried that it might reduce my BT broadband speed as i have had a slow connection ever since i had it installed, And one of the questions that BT asked was "do i have sky on the same phone line". At the time i did not and sometimes i was not even getting much more than dial up speed and the fatest was no more than 1meg. Now i have just had sky tv installed i was worried that it might cause me more speed loss, But ever since they have connected it to the phone line i have been getting a costant speed of just under 2 meg. Is this a coincidence? Sorry for the long version but its been puzzling me and im very happy with the speed increase.

"i have been getting a costant speed of just under 2 meg"

Measured how?

What speed are you actually subscribing to?

I use the speed test from Broadbandmax.co.uk and the speed i used to get was around 930kbps and now it is 2412kbps.

Sorry subscribing to the upto 4 meg BT service

from what i understand, the speed u subscribe to, divide it by 10 and that will be your download speed give or take

What?

Where on earth did you get that nonsense from?

I subscribe to 8Meg with Tiscali and regularly get 6.5 - 7 Meg.

Do Sky hardwire the line from the box into your phone socket? I wonder if you had a dodgy filter and this has now been replaced.

Toffly, That site says that im getting speed down 6440.98 kbps 6.3mbps and 373.84 kbps 0.4mbps speed up.

Dipso, No sky just used a double adapter and put it in the filter, I did change the filter before on BT instructions and it made no difference.
