      Your line may have been moved to ADSL2+. Post your stats.

      Re: Strange Speed Changes

      Somehow doubt that, we only get the speeds which everyone else got 10 ***ing years ago, its so annoying how places like portugal get 100mb internet. And me/many many others are stuck with UNDER 5 =/

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 3067 kbps 525 kbps
      Line Attenuation 60.5 db 37.3 db
      Noise Margin 5.1 db 10.0 db

      Re: Strange Speed Changes

      Have you posted here just for a general rant about UK BB speeds or would you like some actual advice.

      As the man says Sky may have upgraded your exchange for ADSL2+ and your line has been reconfigured.

      Hmm, is it possible if i leave it for a while, because i can live with this speed, it may get better ?

      I just dont understand how the upload goes UP, yet download goes DOWN

      Re: Strange Speed Changes

      Your noise margin figure isn't good. Do you have a test socket which you can recheck your stats from?

      Re: Strange Speed Changes

      It'll rule out any issues from extensions, phones etc - also try a different filter.

      If Sky have put you on ADSL2+ It may well be that your best bet is to get them to put you back on G.DMT, as your line can't handle it.

      If you do have other telephone sockets then it may be worth investing in a filter faceplate which may improve things.

      Re: Strange Speed Changes

      Ok, is the only way i can check that they have put me onto ADSL2 is if i ring Sky ?

      Also, if they had put me on ADSL2 and my line couldn't use it, wouldn't my upload have gone down too, rather than up ?
