      Is my line capped??

      IT used to connect at 3.7mb and have **** slow pings
      so i asked for it to be sorted and they lowered my max delays, upload speed went from 300 to 400 but then downstream went to 2.5

      A while back i asked why it was doing this and they seemed to sort it, now is at 3.5mb stable, but NEVER seems to go above this - even though before i used to get 3.7 sometimes...

      Connection Speed 3584 kbps 416 kbps
      Line Attenuation 58.0 db 31.5 db
      Noise Margin 8.6 db 14.0 db

      Also, my attenuation has gone down from 60 to 58 in the last few weeks, does thhis meananything ?

      I would say your sync is about right for your attenuation.
      Sky router stats (speed, noise, attenuation) explained
      Full router stats from the V1 would tell more.
      Detailed stats can be got from the new V1 firmware (V1.03.87)
      Change in attenuation could be down to a change of router or a move from gdmt to agsl2+

      No because the link is refering to the BT equipment in the exchange. Sky equipment in your exchange is already capable of ADSL2+ and has been for the last 4 years.
