      Pretty much, I'm about 200m from both the cabinet and the actual exchange.

      Out of interest, the line stats (and especially the Noise Margin) are quite a bit worse than when I was on ADSL2+, will they improve over time or does VDSL work to slightly different values as to what is great/good/average and so on?

      Re: The Official Who's Got Sky Fibre Thread

      Your noise margin could not be much better. The higher the noise margin you have the better, provided your speed is high, which yours is. The noise margin on vDSL, unlike ADSL, is calculated from the cabinet to your router as there is virtually no noise on a fibre connection. I would say your noise margin is above average, which indicates your line could take more speed, if it were available.
