      if you can extract your current line attenuation, then pop it into

      DSL ZoneUK - How fast can I get on ADSL2+?

      to see what you'll probably get,

      Re: Will i get better speed with sky than bt,

      At the moment i have VM 20MB BB via a cable line,

      All i can tell you is when i was on bt BB last year i was getting about 3.5mb and that was with two extensions on the line and the modem line (phone cable) was about 20 meter cable run from the outdoor bt drop box and had bb filters on the line,

      But now the master socket is about a 2 foot phone cable run from the bt outdoor drop box which is just the other side of the wall the master is also new and i have fitted a adsl face plate and the new modem will go right next to the master socket

      if it says your exchange can recieve max i dont see any reason why they wont put you on that

      only way to find out is ring them up and ask what package you can get
