      Unlimited auto upgrade to 20MB

      Ive noticed that my router is now connecting at 19.6MB down 1MB up so sometime in the last three days Sky have automatically upgraded me or the local exchange from 16MB to 20MB. Unexpected and no router reboot required

      The router would have been rebooted by the dlm process. Check the status button and you will see how long its been online. The process may not have finished yet so you may find that it will sync lower if it decides things arnt stable.

      What are your current stats from the router, to see how stable it will be.

      With that line attenuation you must live all most inside the exchange, you should be getting the full 20Mb with a much higher noise margin, with those stats even the full 24Mb that some offer.

      Can you post your stats from the test socket if you have one, link below in my sig with details.

      Mine has also increased from 1300/686 to 1800/1000 :-)

      Surprised by the big uplift as I am a good 1 KM from the exchange

      Can post my SNR stats later if anyone wants

      If you use a billion router or a netgear v5 like I use you will see your speed increase mainly on that upstream, are you on sky new network do you have sky line rental if not then you would see the improvment I did, I get 13Mb on a 43db line.
