      Exclamation Sky Router Stats

      Hi,

      I have noticed recently that my BB has slowed.

      iPlayer judders, webpages much slower.....flash slower etc.

      Anyway - here are my router stats, and I just wondered if there was anything obvious that jumped out of these?

      Your help would be appreciated.

      Re: Sky Router Stats

      Your noise margin is quite low for that line attenuation which suggest there may be a problem with your wiring. Can you connect to your test socket, if you have one, and repost your stats from there.

      Make sure all equipment you've plugged into the phone sockets around the home are using a microfilter.

      It still looks like he has noise somewhere on the line external or internal, even on connect i shouldn't think the SNR should be that low.

      very true, though the symptoms of slow loading etc is largely down to being on connect i would suspect. Though as you say stats from the test socket wont go amiss

      Ok, will have a poke in the Test socket, and repost the stats. I appreciate your guidance here.

      As for being on Connect - well no choice in the matter, although I am heading back to BT at the end of the week (See seperate post - Leaving Sky for BT), but of course still need to get to the route of this issue, as its only recently slowed down, was never a problem up until 2-3 weeks ago.

      You will be on the same package as you are now,(unless your exchange is one that has been upgraded to ADSL2+). You will still be throttled at peak times, but probably not to the same extent as you are with Sky. I am surprised that your noise margin is so low and has not caused a resync. Especially over a period of 14 days.
      Try your Test socket and see what your stats are like. You might also want to try an official BT Performance test, details of how can be found in one of the many 'Connect' threads.
