      Upgraded to max, Speed halfed

      Please help me. I've recently upgraded to Sky Broadband Max from the Mid package and my connection seems to have been halved. For example before when downloading from Steam i used to average around 420KB/S now when i download from Steam it never goes above 270KB/S and usually averages around 140KB/S. I've tried downloading from a few places and there all are doing the same. Can upgrading lower your speed?
      Also can someone tell me what speeds i should be able to download with these stats.

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 4095 kbps 605 kbps
      Line Attenuation 37.5 db 21.1 db
      Noise Margin 13.1 db 15.9 db

      This thread will tell you what you can expect from your stats.
      Sky router stats (speed, noise, attenuation) explained
      If youve just upgraded its likely that you are on DLM so you need to allow that to finish before doing anything else.

      By upgrading you're automatically put back on the starting speed for MAX, ie 4mbps. DLM will now start again on your line over the next few days and you'll see the speed start to increase once again.

      Try your stats in he Test socket. You should get 11Mb+ but it does not look like you are going to get it with your present stats.
