      Thats the idea so the program can monitor your connection, once we see what the connection is doing in the test socket we might have a better idea.

      It's better but It's still 10 times lower than what I've been told.
      130kBps is about 1500kbps so that's exactly what it should be

      You're on megabits, megabytes would be amazing!!!

      You're stil on adsl2+ too, you could get 2Mbps on gdmt...still, better than what you had before

      I won't be happy if I don't get 700kBps because that's the lowest I've been told my line speed is. I'm 1.9 miles from the exchange.

      No, either shes an idiot, or you misunderstood, you have 1.5 meg, your line attenuation has changed which means you are now back on G.DMT and have received an extra meg download.

      Other than that, there is nothing you can do, thats what your line can handle.

      If you want 1.5 MegaByte download you will have to hope BT lays fibre optic in your area or Switch to virgin. I know BT is doing my area so its just a matter of waiting

      She's an idiot then.

      So there is no other way of getting to 700kilabytes download speed or more unless I move house?

      True?

      Hopefully It will be pretty fast then because 130kB is 4 times better but still not amazing.

      Do I have to switch to BT because I'm on Sky?

      Sorry, Stupid question

      I checked on BT and I can 1.5mb with BT.
      I also live near Whichurch which they are testing 40mb.
      Do I have to move to BT or can I get it on Sky?
