      What speed will I get?

      Hi, I'm currently a virgin media user but signed up for Sky Broadband Base about 6months ago because it was Free! Havenít really used my sky connection yet but am thinking about switching to sky permanently and doing away with virgin media. I have just checked the sky router stats and these are the figures it reports
      Line Attenuation: 36db
      Noise Margin: 30.5db
      What sort of speeds should I expect to get if I purchase the Max package?

      Thanks

      I'd say you'd get around 12mb min

      Thanks for the help, I rang today and asked to be upgraded to the MAX service they said to wait 72hours but it was done within a minute of hanging up the phone However I think I have been capped as the Connection Speed is 8096 kbps not sure why they have done this as my Noise Margin is still 10.6 db and I get 0 drop cells
