      Tbh with your line I would only expect to see sync speeds of around 13000kbps so you should consider yourself lucky as DLM has tweaked your line right to its limits (like it should).

      As for the upload, that is about right as well.

      Regards

      yes - DLM is currently the only way to get faster - and even that's unofficial as it's not meant to do it yet...

      You asked about increasing line speeds, and were given an appropriate answer, saying your line appeared to be syncing higher than expected anyway...

      Some people....

      With those stats you will not get any more download speed out of Sky, I don't care what your line is made of You are lucky to be getting what you have now, if DLM was ran again I suspect it would reduce it so the noise margin hit its target of 6.9db.

      You may get more upload speed when Sky start rolling it out though.
