      long term sky customer, new home, new router - broadband unlimited pro

      I still stand by my claim that sky is the best bb provider in the uk, even though I do occasionally have reason to complain to them

      moved house few weeks ago, upgraded to bb pro unlimited, bought a billion 7800n which arrived today, these are the stats:

      Upstream 1356
      Downstream 21515
      SNR Margin(Upstream) 4.1
      SNR Margin(Downstream) 0.4
      Line Attenuation(Upstream) 15.0
      Line Attenuation(Downstream) 25.0

      sky gladly gave me the user name and password and the connection details, last week they removed all forms of error correction from my line and unleashed the power from the exchange to my house.

      quick play with the hidden snr page on the billion and all is well

      The time you see depends on your own settings. I would say your Date and Time settings are wrong. You appear to be set to MidAtlantic time instead of GMT. Your post time appears as 11.20 to me.

      They do seem to be making a good effort to make the Broadband Pro and Fibre Pro products worth a little extra for people who like to tweak things.
