      Nearly there

      Hi all,

      New here so go easy!

      Due to be activated on Friday and now have router. Below are my current stats, should these be OK for Sky Max? Any idea of the likely speed?

      If your line turns out to be as good as it appears to be then you should get close to the full 16meg. If you don't, post your new stats and someone will advise.
