      Did you ever try the Test socket as I suggested in one of your previous posts, if so did the noise margin rise?

      You are still on G.DMT, when you go on DLM there is a good chance that your speed will increase, not by a lot, maybe just over 6 Mb. Sky are not intentionally lowering your speed. The speed you get at any particular time depends on the conditions on your line. These can vary from second to second by a small amount and over several hours, by a large amount. If you boot your router at a quiet time(morning usually) it will probably sync at a higher speed, but unless your router is able to hold this speed, as soon as the line gets too noisy it will resync at a lower speed. To be honest, with your present figures you are unlikely to get much more from any ISP, you are just too far from your exchange.

      Sky would no doubt tell you the same, this speed would be attainable on your line if it were in very good condition using ADSL2+. Phone Sky and ask them if they can move you to ADSL2+ or put DLM on your line, which does the same thing. You will then get the maximum your line can handle.

      I can understand the frustration, but 0.5mb is not going to be that different speed-wise.

      Those new stats - are they from the test socket? From what you typed earlier about it only increasing 0.1mb from the test socket, I can imagine it will not produce any different results, but put it in the test socket and post the statistics from it.

      DLM takes 3-10 days, the speed will depend on the condition of your external line, but should be 6-7Mbs.

      actually sky told me its prob my router and they are now sending me a new one
      Waste of time I think. Your line is getting about as much as it could on G.DMT.
