      Angry Slow Down Load Speed

      On the 08/08/09 they started DLM the went down to 512kbs this lasted until 24/08/09, i filled out the form and emailed sky to complain about my slow speed, after several hours later a person call [ANDREW] emailed to say, it had be rectified and speed put up to 3megs that was fine, 24 hrs later my speed was put down to 1meg.
      Looking in to sky account it started retesting again from 22/08/09 for 10 days, another week and half with slow speed again.

      3Mbs would be very poor for your line, maybe that is why they have put it back on training, you should get 5-6+ Mbs. Make sure your internal wiring is in good order for the best result.

      Re: Slow Down Load Speed

      With that sort of Noise Margin vs Line Attentuation you could be looking at 5-6mbps when DLM has completed. Hang on in there
