      Re: max speed

      It isn't, you're currently capped. Using the Sky User speed test - ADSL2+ Speed Test
      We estimate your line is capable of between 12mb to 14mb broadband on an ADSL2+ service.

      You're noise margin would suggest the line is capable of a lot more, maybe even the maximum 10Mb on Sky Mid (Everyday)

      In that case the stats are normal - this is the starting connection speed for all new Max (unlimited) activations. Once DLM kicks in you should start to see the speed increase.

      BTW you may want to change your profile to Sky Unlimited, it'll save any confusion.
