Project reality for BF2 :thumbsup:

Sky's piggyback onto BT's network. When BT's network has bandwidth/congestion - they are prioritised over Sky - and Sky customers suffer.

Most I ever got with Sky was 3Mb down - with O2 and no difference to the phone line etc - I get over 10Mb.

Enjoy your speed while you can, it won't last.

I only have 10GB allowance in 18 days I have used 13GB :thumbsup: but according to their website they don't care yet

"You can keep up to date with your broadband usage below. Don’t worry, although we’re displaying your usage here, we will not currently upgrade you to a new package should you go over your usage allowance and you can carry on using your broadband as usual."

As far as I can tell they've upped the allowance, it was going to be 4Gb which I was fuming about

im on upto 16meg and only get 425kbps download through sky and im not that far from the exchange you must live in it to get the speeds you are

I think insomniac is one of the illegal download policy,either that or just jealous

Wrong, one 425kbps is a sync speed, and you'd only expact that if you're … Wrong, one 425kbps is a sync speed, and you'd only expact that if you're a good few miles out. I'm 1.5 miles away at home and get 18.5meg. You need to complain.



Their online checkometer says I would only get 5megs on my line but getting 9213 kbps, I'm paying for upto 10meg so they are grossly under selling themselves. I'm 1.3 miles from our exchange
