      When sky move you to Max your connection will automatically re-sync, with the new upstream speed displayed you shouldn't have to do anything.

      Just done a speed test it looks like they've upgraded it already. http://www.speedtest.net/result/456293310.png

      How come the Line Attentuation has gone down? I thought this was the line length and is there any way to improve upload speed to get nearer to the 768kbps?

      Re: broadband speeds for gaming

      I get 685kbps throughput on my upstream connection, but mine has been through DLM which puts it to 796kbps, but around 685kbps is about right. that should give a transfer rate of around 70-80kbps.

      Hope this is useful.

      DLM should last about 10 days or so, you can tell when you are on DLM because the upstream changes to 796kbps or something close to that and if this process caps the line speed in any way don't panic just phone sky after the 10 days and they will restore the connection speed.

      Alos when DLM starts try not to unplug the router if you can because it will not help.

      Re: broadband speeds for gaming

      Sky have done you a favour by putting your line on G.DMT, previously you were on ADSL2+. This is why you are seeing an increase in the sync speed and a reduction in the attenuation. On ADSL2+ your upload would have been restricted to 764. Should Sky put you on DLM get on the phone right away and ask them to return you to G.DMT. ADSL2+ only seems to be benificial on lines which are syncing at or near 8Mbs.

      The upload speeds-
      Connection Speed 5119 kbps 412 kbps Indicates ADSL2+ on Mid
      Connection Speed 6432 kbps 768 kbps Indicates G.DMT on Max.
      If you were still on ADSL2+ your upload would have been 764 kbps.

      Just leave things as they are. The tech who adjusted your line probably noticed it was not performing as it should and moved you from ADSL2+. Hopefully he has left a note on your account explaining it. Contrary to the belief of some, not all Sky support are idiots

      If they do put DLM on, then you can phone and ask them to take it off, as you had been on ADSL2+ before and it was unsuccessful.
