      New to SKY BB - Estimated Speed

      Hello all,

      I'm new to SKY, having transferred over from BT.

      My transfer took place on 1st Dec, however, as you can see from my stats, I'm still waiting on the DLM to kick in. (Does it usually take this long to start?)

      Based on my stats, am I right in thinking that I should get a speed of 14-16mb, or am I being a little optimistic?

      Thanks in advance.

      If your external line and internal wiring are very good, you may get 14-16, 13-14 might be more realistic.

      Check your stats in the Test socket. You are looking for a rise in the noise margin.

      Thanks for the reply. I'll check my stats on the Test socket just as soon as the DLM's done. I take it that it's not an issue that it hasn't started yet?

      I'm currently in a similar situation, I was activated on Dec 2nd, But my DLM has yet to kick in. A little annoying... but I guess we have got to be patient. I did phone up and was told I have to give it at least 10 days, and if DLM still hasnt started after that, call them up again.

      Has DLM kicked in yet for you g30?

      Mine hadn't so a couple of days ago I got them manually to boost it up. Might be an idea to contact them if it hasn't. I was too impatient to wait 10 days!

      Hi Jim,

      Just off the phone to them. The DLM hadn't kicked in, but they've since sorted it and I'm getting almost 16mb - better than I expected!

      No wonder you're happy now - 19mb is superb!!!

      Cheers

      G
