      Before you are moved, post your stats from the normal position and from the Test socket if you have one. We can then tell if you are getting as much as you can. To be honest, I would have expected you to sync at the maximum possible with BT Max, which your original stats show you are not doing. This may signal a problem, which you are better sorting out before you move to Unlimited.

      If you have a filtered faceplate fitted, there is not much more you can do. Flat dwellers seem to suffer more with wiring problems than those that live in houses and there is not a lot you can do about it. Just keep your fingers crossed that DLM does not find any problems. Remember your start speed will be 4Mb, so don't worry too much about that, it will increase.

      I would think you will at least double the speed you have and possibly get the full 20 Mb.

      Re: from 1mg d/l to 6.5 on connect is that possible

      well at the end of the day the sky connect package is costing me 10 pound per month for 6 meg until 5pm then it drops to 1 meg until midnight lol

      with sky unlimited its only 7.50 per month so if i can even get 10 meg 24 /7 that will make me a happy bunny

      and is it true the upload speed is better with sky cuz its awful on the connect and causes real probs when gaming on xbox for me and the kids

      I would think your upload of 448 with Connect will about double with LLU.
