      My sky connection

      How good do you think my connection is? i was on about 5.3 mb on mid when i found out that sky will be reducing the monthly cap to 10gb, so i upgraded my connection to max 3 days ago and my connections dropped down to 3-4ish mb is that perfectly normal? if so will i get 10mb plus after my connections sorted? thanks.

      Heres the stats.
      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 4096 kbps 512 kbps
      Line Attenuation 51.0 db 31.5 db
      Noise Margin 12.4 db 14.0 db

      No, you will get about the same as you had before because you are too far away from the exchange to get higher speeds.

      The main benefit for you is the unlimited downloads.

      What Is DLM? Everything you need to know.

      in a nutshell, Base starts at 1Mbps, Everyday 3Mbps and Unlimited 4Mbps and speeds go up if line can handle it...
