      No they don't, you should be going faster.
      Try your test socket and repost your stats.

      It just proves how much a poor extension will hold back the speed. Get that fixed and you should get 16+Mb.

      seriously! im only just hitting 11mb at the mo. so if i sort the extension out, will the speed sort itself out. or will i have to tell sky to start testing my line again?
