      Well it gave me an idea of the attenuation of the local lines. But as of now still no broadband connection at 9:41pm :S how can it take this long to switch it on!

      AOK, was supposed to be activated yesterday, in fact was activated some point today. Was seeing (up to) about 1.3MB for the Knoppix ISO torrent I was downloading but things suddenly ground to a halt after about an hour. DNS seemed to go down but a reboot of the router saw everything come back up. Torrent finished a few mins later! First time I've downloaded a full DVD worth of data in an evening! Not the sort of thing I'll be doing every night as I don't want to end up on the badboy pipe.....

      Samknows says I'm 1.15km from Wallasey exchange.

      Apologies for formatting below!

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 14350 kbps 766 kbps
      Line Attenuation 33.5 db 18.6 db
      Noise Margin 6.6 db 12.4 db

      After a weekend of solid use by everyone in the house my sky broadband connection is solid and performs well. So overall i am happy with twice the speed i had before. Hope everyone fairs the same esp those of us with long lines.
