      SVBN cause of slow sky broadband unlimited???

      Hi there guys (and girls ) first off i'd like to say that this is an amazing site and the people seem very knowledgable and friendly

      my first post on the site, so here goes...

      my sky broadband has been working exceptionally well for ages, recently i got a letter stating that i'm getting moved over to the SVBN network, this was on the 14th of october. Lately my connection speed has become ridiculously slow. Everything on my end seems fine, done various speed tests, and all equipment is correctly setup, however, i just seem to be getting a slow download speed of roughly 3-6mb and it flucuates ALOT. do you think it could be to do with a DLM on my line, because of the migration to SVBN??

      here are my stats

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 12284 kbps 1044 kbps
      Line Attenuation 28 db 14 db
      Noise Margin 4 db 8 db

      Your noise margin is very low, this can cause errors on the line and slow you down. Can you plug into your test socket and take the stats from there, link below.
