      It doesn't need one if nothing is using it although it is now ready and harder to forget to use it so you may as well leave it.

      Just checked status on my sky account "Line testing is currently in progress. Testing on your broadband connection began on 05/06/2009 and will be completed within 10 days. "

      Router stats have changed to:

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 7611 kbps 796 kbps
      Line Attenuation 20.0 db 9.2 db
      Noise Margin 20.9 db 15.5 db

      Noise margin is still pretty high so hopefully should end up with a good connection speed?

      Definately, you'll get 16Mbps no problem. Maybe around the 20-22 mark when "up to 24Mb" comes out

      Thats great news then

      will that be when my exchange gets upgraded to 21CN WBC?
      currently is showing as RFS date set : 31/03/2010

      Im still not sure on the difference of ADSL/LLU/ADSL2+
      Is my exchange capable of giving me SKY 16mb if my exchange isnt ADSL2+ enabled? Or is that just for when BT roll out 24Mb?

      Just a quick update with my latest stats

      ADSL LinkDownstreamUpstream
      Connection Speed11263 kbps926 kbps
      Line Attenuation20.0 db9.2 db
      Noise Margin13.2 db9.0 db

      looks like my download will increase a bit more as theres still quite a good noise margin, but i guess that is the max im likely to see from the upload unless sky increase their upload speed right?

      My router seems to sync around 4am looking at the uptime ofr my connection the next day so fingers crossed for some more d/l speed 2moro
