      Something wrong with me or with Sky?

      Hi all, excellent site!

      I've just completed a painless and smooth migration from PlusNet to Sky Max (activated on Friday 16th), however, I have a query about the speeds I'm getting.

      I accept that it gets very busy during peak evening and weekend hours, but I've been seeing a lot of people saying they get 6000kbps+ speed tests.

      My router is sync'ing downstream at 15000kpbs and upstream at 700kpbs, yet I'm struggling to download at anything more than 2Mb....

      Status: Showtime Channel: FAST, Upstream rate = 764 Kbps, Downstream rate = 15323 Kbps
      Link Power State: L0
      Mode: ADSL2+
      Channel: Fast
      Trellis: ON
      Line Status: No Defect
      Training Status: Showtime
      Down Up
      SNR (dB): 7.9 12.0
      Attn(dB): 23.0 12.9
      Pwr(dBm): 0.2 12.4
      Max(Kbps): 15984 864
      Rate (Kbps): 15323 764
      Do I need to log a call with Sky T3 support or let the line stabilise over the next few days?

      Just as you posted that I'd just finished a second speedtest after running TCPOptimiser...
