      Just connected - do my stats look big in this?

      Hi everyone, just got connected in the last few hours. The exchange is just across the road but the phone line disappears the opposite direction so not sure of line length. I am using an ADSL faceplate and a shielded ADSL cable as opposed to the one included with the router.

      Here's my stats. I'm already doing better than standard ADSL at my previous home.

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 4095 kbps 605 kbps
      Line Attenuation 13.5 db 6.8 db
      Noise Margin 14.3 db 21.0 db

      Many thanks

      thats your start speed, you'll now undergo DLM (Dynamic Line Management) which will test the line so don't turn it off and over the next 10 or so days your speed will increase - you should see 16Mbps+

      On that attenuation I would expect near the full 20mbps!

      Router resynchronised. Not sure if that's due to a router crash or Sky renegotiating the line as part of the test. Now get

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 16382 kbps 945 kbps
      Line Attenuation 13.0 db 6.9 db
      Noise Margin 11.3 db 15.7 db
