      Are you using a wired connection to do the speed test? Until you do and determine you actual speed, it is a waste of time trying to improve the wireless connection.
      With your attenuation if you were getting an 8Mb download using wireless, from Bulldog, this is exceptional.

      I have to doubt they told you you would get 16Mb, they would say you could have 'up to 16Mb' which as you have discovered is completely different. Usually Sky quote the same as the BT tester which greatly underestimates the speed you can get. Try putting your phone number in here and see what it says-
