      Speed wise, it's hard to say. With an attenuation on the 40's you may or may not see only a small increase.

      As to download, with the impending decrease on the Mid/Everyday packadge to 10 gigs a month (I am assuming this will apply to exsisting customers?) then you may be better off on Max/ Unlimited, it depends how much you download. You would get a faster upload on Max/Unlimited.

      You are on the DLM training start speed. Keep your router plugged in and powered up for the next 10 days.

      i belive im correct here but thats just the start off speeds for new and existing customers who upgrade, DLM related just leave the router on for 10 days and you should see you speed increase not to sure on what speed to expect because im not that good but thats all it is should sort it self out in a few days.
