      shall i phone cst or wait?

      hey ppl

      right here is the situation.

      i am on DLM like thousands of other people

      im am on day 15 of 20 on DLM and i think its scheduled to finish tuesday

      dlm had put me on adsl2 and gave me a lousy speed

      and i cam home oand check 192.168.0.1 as i havent done it for a couple of days. and to my joy its back on gdmt i think

      here are my stats


      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 256 kbps 192 kbps
      Line Attenuation 63.5 db 31.5 db
      Noise Margin 15.8 db 14.0 db


      now this is my question: should i phone sky cst and get myself speeded up

      or shall i wait for dlm to finish then phone if it hasnt speeded up?

      cheers in advance

      sam

      if you are still on DLM, then any change will more than likely be undone when it reprofiles...if you can wait then i'd leave it until complete and then get it sorted out

      Dlm usually takes 10 day however it can take up to 20 days
      this means that it may not take the full 20 days.

      It would do no harm to phone, if DLM has finished it is not working very well and if it has not, they will soon tell you.

      For a fiver, Sky's Talk is quite a good buy. It gives you free 01,02 and 10 international destinations, plus free calls to Sky support lines. Their rental can be lower than BT's although I think the jury is still out on whether it is advisable.
