      New Connection Speed

      Hi Guys

      Just got Sky Unlimited and it activated today, but I am a bit perplexed about my speed, SKy sent me a letter sayin they were connecting me at 4mb, yet BT Wholesale my line goes up to 7mb..

      I have indeed connected today at 4MB? anyone know why, will it go up on its own or will I have to phone support?

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 4096 kbps 512 kbps
      Line Attenuation 20 db 10 db
      Noise Margin 27 db 13 db

      my noise seems like I have a fair bit to go up in speed, so I am struggling to understand why..

      also why did I only get the DG834G router, and not the GT, is it random etc

      you start at 4Mbps and go up over the first 10 or so days (as the welcome letter tells you)...so don't turn the router off
