      You should be getting a bit more with your stats.

      I would imagine you should get 8-9mb.

      Ring Sky after 10:30 tonight and see if you can speak to CST, they should be able to sort it out there and then.

      Are these stats from the test socket, if not post them from there if you have one of course, your downstream attenuation is the same as me, so you should be seeing at least 8mb if not 9mb if your line is of good quality.

      Yes - they were taken from the test socket and thanks for you help - I'll give them a ring later on this evening.

      Re-post your stats when you have phoned them and got your speed increased, to see how they look.
