      You could try to up the sync to 16000, but only being 3 kbps away I don't really see the point, since it won't have any effect on your connection. Nice to see that it's working great for some people. with that snr, you might be able to stay connected throughout tonight when peoples snr drops, but your sync speed might drop a little.

      Reliability for me is more important than speed. So far, Sky Max has been very reliable and I have not had the disconnections so many others have.

      My download speed seems to vary quite a bit but is usually fast to very fast. I have tried the various sites and methods suggested on this board and elsewhere. My favourite is below. It is easy to understand, fun and fast.
      My question: Is speedtest meaningful, consistent and reasonable as an indication of speed accuracy.
      Is it any good?

      I have to agree with your sentiments my connection is also the same but I am not a fan of speed test site I much rather do my test via an ftp server and tend to download Linux files.

      Oh I agree I do use them to give me a rough I idea all the time as loading the ftp client is a real pain to do all the time

      I'd agree it does seem accurate but why no upload?

      Thanks El and Ray. I will switch to dslzone. I like the advanced test.
      In particular the comparison graph. It also shows Mbs and Kbs which usually confuses me. You are also able to use the drop down box to choose your Sky service. In my case Sky Max.

      I have done 4 tests and nearly achieve the maximum 8Mbps 3 out of 4 times. In future I will spread the tests out over the day.

      Incidentally, speedtest usually gives a download speed of about 9Mbs. You can also see the upload speed.
