      Speed capped???

      Hi I am currently on the Mid package and want to know what speed I have been capped at because I was last informed by sky that I had been capped at 4mb but it now seems even lower!!!! So annoyed Are they allowed to do this without my consent? Here are my stats:

      Depends on your line I would think as the speeds adapt to line conditions. Have you tried rebooting the router?

      Yes, you've been capped at a little over 3meg. The clues that show you are capped are in your router reported max speed compared to your actual sync speed and your very high noise margin.

      Uncapped, with your current line condition you could expect a sync of ~6meg. Whether that would be stable is a different matter though. Presumably Sky capped you because they found line problems.

      Your attenuation at 39db suggests that you would get even more than that (~10.5meg, or in your case 8meg as you're on Mid) if you improved your line condition.
