      It doesn't matter who you go with, your phone line is the same.

      If you go for Sky Max then your line will go through DLM which will set the line for the highest stable speed that IT thinks is suitable based on the actual conditions of the line, not BT speed check data.
      DLM is setting Sky Max lines up to 24Mb, so if you have a good line then you could get as much as that.

      It's probably something daft like a default estimate from BT that's showing 6Mb, O2 are likely using postcode distance or some otherway to calculate it.

      If O2 do not accept your line as it is, you may find yourself having to pay out for BT to take the line over. Especially if the install was arranged by Sky. I have to agree with Mr. Stabby, if O2 can give you 16Mb, so can Sky. As I said above, you will probably get well over 16 mb with Sky, but you are the one who is paying the bill, so the final decision is up to you.
