      Well based on you line attentuation you should be looking at a connection speed of between 7 and 8mbps, more or less what you're getting now and hopefully if you get onto Sky's LLU package you should be able to get a reasonably good download speed 24/7 with no throttling. Bear in mind download speed should be around 80-90% of your connection speed.

      Thanks smithy99 and thanks neilmcl, i typed in my phone number and post code and i got this

      SamKnows Broadband - Availability - Broadband Availability Checker

      not entirely sure whether that link will work but ill copy and paste just incase

      Congratulations, you are in a broadband enabled area.
      Click here to compare packages available to you.
      However, there is another service on your phone line (e.g. ADSL, LLU, DACS, etc) that would prevent you from ordering a new ADSL connection.

      The following services are available in your location:
      BT Wholesale ADSL
      BT Wholesale ADSL Max
      BT Wholesale WBC (21CN)
      BT Wholesale SDSL
      AOL LLU
      TalkTalk (CPW) LLU
      Sky Broadband / Easynet LLU
      Orange LLU (Formerly Wanadoo)
      Orbital / VFast Wireless

      and all these have a green tick next to them, so i guess i have sky LLU enabled in my exchange right?

      Thanks again people.

      Put your phone number in the box on this page to find out what you can get. Never believe what Sky tell you on the phone, they are not always 100% truthful.
