      OK.... So who's telling the truth??

      After reading numerous posts on here about ADSL/ADSL2/ADSLMAX, I would like to know what my exchange is enabled for??

      I live 1.1km from my exchange and Sky told me when ordering broadband that I could expect very high speeds approaching 15Mb.

      When looking on DSLZONEUK, it says my exchange is enabled for 'up to' 8Mb, and SAMKNOWS says my exchange is enabled for ADSLMAX.... My exchange is 'Solihull' btw.

      So what is the deal with all these reports... could I 'in theory' get over 8Mb?

      Thanks.

      ADSL Max is a BT product, speeds up to 8mbs, Sky use BT only for the Connect service.
      DSLzone and Samknows only report on BTs offering( I think)
      If your exchange has been unbundled by Easynet (Sky) then their DSLAMs will be capable of syncing up to 16mbs.
      What you get will be dependent on your lines attenuation, noise, and the sate of your internal extension wiring.
