      Sky Unlimited Speed - Slight Increase

      So I've been with sky for a few months now and was getting around 17.6 down and 1.03 up and was really happy about this as with Virgin I was only getting 4.2 down. So last night I had a power cut and when the power came back on I checked the routers stats and to my surprise, it's increased slightly. I'm now getting;

      Broadband Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 23067 kbps 1298 kbps
      Line Attenuation 17.5 dB 11.0 dB
      Noise Margin 3.1 dB 9.9 dB




      Only downside to this though is my ping has increase, but only by a little

      You may find that DLM will clean things up a little in order to improve the ping. However 41ms isn't too bad for an ADSL connection.

      Just an update on my speed. I just checked my sky hub page as the router disconnected and reconnected and to my surprise, I've gotten another speed increase

      Yes I've noticed these past few days that the router has disconnected overnight and the speeds have increased. I've had Sky Unlimited for 3 years and it's been really good in that time.

      It appears that Sky has introduced yet further enhancements to their DLM software and increased the upload speeds in their profiles at the same time.

      Over the past couple of weeks several members have been reporting improved upload speeds for a start.

      Well that's good news and thanks for the info. I'm guessing that there will be another increase tomorrow morning. The ping has dropped by 10ms too in the past few days.
