      Max Down Speed

      I have `Sky Mid` and get a Connection Speed of 8096 kbps-down and Upstream of 416 kbps, Line Attenuation of 35 db & NR =7.4 db--On Sky speed tester I get 6792 kbps -down & up = 317 kbps -which is great. I recommended Sky to my next door neighbour and he has`Sky Max` and he lives 30 metres, away from House, but only gets Conn Speed of 6656kbps down, Up = 768kbps. Line Attenuation & Nr same as me,but on Sky speed Test he gets Down 5385kbps/ Up 575 kbps. We have tried swopping over Routers still the same.These Tests were done at the Test Socket within the NTE5-- surely being on Max of 16 meg ,he should get a better Speed than me-- if not, he might as well be on Sky Mid, same as me and only paying 5, instead of 10. We live 1.5 miles from Exchange.Any ideas please.

      Re: Max Down Speed

      It looks like he may have a faulty line. He is not capped or his SNR would be much higher. Has he got any noise on his voice line?
