      Going by attenuation, around 16Mbps...going by noise margin, about 8-10Mbps...

      Try your test socket if you've got one, you're looking to see if the noise margin goes up...

      Likewise I have just 're-graded' to get my 2.50 discount. I seem to have lost real world speeds after going through DLM again. Could someone please give the figures below the once over and post their thoughts.

      Many Thanks,

      Danr1, you won;t be getting much more with your noise margin, have you tried the test socket?

      It'd also be helpful to know what speeds you were getting before the regrade and if your on SVBN (Sky talk + line rental + broadband)

      Re: Sky Max/Unlimited user

      Thank you for coming back,

      I believe my 'real world' speeds prior to the re-grade were closer to the 12 Mbps region. Although I've noticed on the speed checker website it is telling me I'm getting nearly a 1Mbps upload speed, which seems higher than previously ?

      I may call sky to see if they can tinker with the speed at all, but my current speed is not causing any problems.

      Post your stats from the TEST socket, that should give us a better idea of speeds available to you. How to test your ADSL in the Master Socket

      Morning, Test Socket Stats above. Incidentally why is there such a difference between the downstream speed in the stats and the real world speed i am seeing?

      Thanks, Dan

      Re: Sky Max/Unlimited user

      The stats show little difference between the test and master sockets so it looks like you are around the maximum, maybe a fraction more but I would personally rather it be stable.

      The router sync speed does not allow for overheads so real term speed is usually 10-20% lower than this, if you are using wireless it is worth changing the wireless channel number, start at 13 and work down. Best bet is to connect a wire and see what you can get.
