Sky FTTC VDSL2 broadband praise where it is deserved

Post by embleton » Tue Dec 02, 2014 7:39 pm

I've been a Sky hybrid Fibre Pro customer now for almost a year and during that time it's been a delight to be a customer of their broadband package. It has been highly reliable with a connection sync speed of 80/20Mbps. The VDSL2 line and broadband router just stay up for not weeks, but months on end with almost zero disconnects, in the eleven months as a customer I've probably had like 3 disconnections only.

It averages a healthy 73Mbps downstream speed as was monitored by a SamKnows whitebox, and more impressively a 19.7Mbps average upstream speed over the previous month. The broadband downstream has peaked at speeds of 74.7Mbps on numerous occasions over the month. Its lowest point was 64.8Mbps on 30th November 2014 in the late evening. Over that same period the latency has averaged 10.9ms from Plymouth and peaked at a high of 12.65ms on 27th November to my closest SamKnows servers in London.
