      hmm, the actual words she said was, I'll take the dlm off your connection if your absolutely sure you want to opt out???

      Not that I completely believe what Ive been told by sky, so from what your saying does that mean I'm to expect it to keep fluctuating?

      basically DLM can be suspended but not turned off - hopefully speed should stay stable though...all depends what goes on with errors/line conditions/etc...

      I think it is just a case of different agents using different terms. Had you called up and asked to opt out of DLM you would probably have been told you couldn't. But if you called up and asked them to manually configure your line, you might have been told 'OK we will take you off DLM'. Which amounts to the same thing.

      dlm can be suspended by the click of a button you do not have to wait 10 days for it to come off the line tell them u want it turned off its poor at its job and makes things more complex it does not have enough profiles and it always sets the max delays to 8

      by the way, if its been suspended, what is the usual amount of time before its switched back on, any ideas?

      If it's suspended AFAIK it's not switched back on.
