      SKY BB Mid Prob

      i have been connected on Sky BBs Mid package for just over a week now and just wondering regarding speeds, its not what im used to on a 8mb. I was previously on ADSL24 at my previous address before moving here.

      here are my stats below:

      Connection Speed 2080 kbps 160 kbps
      Line Attenuation 58 db 15.5 db
      Noise Margin 8 db 7 db

      does this look right or does it look like they have me set at 2mb rather than 8mb? also my line attenuation looks rather high.

      its a new build block of flats so i presume thats why...

      just looking for peoples thoughts.

      thanks

      Unless your Speed/Noise Margin rises significantly while plugged into the Test socket, then I am afraid that is all you are going to get. With your high attenuation, 3Mb would be about your maximum at best.
