      That's Weird That Is - Sky Max Speed

      Got switched over to Sky Max on Monday and using the speedtest showed around 7mbs (synching around 8.5mbs I think). Tried yesterday and it was showing about 14mbs (synching at 16mbs). Tried again tonight and back to 8mbs (synch at 9mbs). How strange! Nothing has changed my end.

      I'm sure the attn and NM were very similar yesterday.

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 9213 kbps 796 kbps
      Line Attenuation 14.5 db 5.6 db
      Noise Margin 14.0 db 16.0 db

      I may be wrong ( again ) but if the target nm for the router is @ 6.9 then 14 is a high margin. Your attn should not change, and 796 points to dlm.

      I know my current speed is still good but is it worth giving Sky a call just to ask?
      8mbs is good but 14mbs is much better.

      Your attn should easily support 16 meg. If these figures are from the test socket and you are confident you have no line issues then a call to sky is the only way, as i believe they leave dlm running for around 10 days then whatever it comes up with you are stuck with unless you call.

      Well I'm not running from the test socket but I have changed nothing since yesterday evening. I'll give them a call tomorrow from work just to ask the question.
