      Is 2.20 km from exchange too far?

      According to Samknows.com and multimap.com I am 2.20 km (1.37 miles) from my local exchange. What sort of speed can I realistically get? Is their anything I can do to improve my stats when connected to Sky Mid. I was disconnected from Be yesterday at around 2.30pm. I was surfing the web thinking maybe they forgot to pul the plug when I got a Page cant be displayed and then our ADT monitored Alarm started to beep showing their was a phone line issue.

      How long shall I wait till I phone sky and order the Mid package?
      I dont suffer from insanity... I enjoy every minute of it!

      Have a look at the tools and tutorials section:

      If you know your attenuation from your Be router, then you can get a reasonably good idea of what to expect.
