      Confused about line speed

      Hi, I'm currently on Sky Connect because Sky broadband isn't in my area as yet. I've just checked my line to see whether or not it has been made available and as yet it hasn't, however, the line checker tool I've used which is on this site says that my line is capable of 2meg. Now, what is confusing me is that my BRAS profile is 7150 and the throughput is 6130. How can my line be only capable of 2meg when I'm getting a throughput of 6130?

      Thanks

      Woz.

      Line checkers are very inaccurate, and possibly based on capabilitys a few years ago.

      Ok.

      I've just checked to see what I could theoretically acheive on ADSL2 with an attenuation of 32db and it came back with 12 - 14meg.
