      In that case I'll tell all the gamers who ring in complaining with speeds of about 10mb to sod off then....

      Well maybe all the guys who use the big words will come on and help me out here, but it doesn't look right, and I'm sure it could be better.

      Definitely advise a new microfilter for a start, try the test socket and post stats from there, also make sure any other phone sockets in use in the house are filtered as well.

      Definitely advise a call to Sky to faff with it. (Thats a very technical term by the way....)

      Yes I know. And I'm saying it should be better than you're getting.

      You need to call Sky and ask them to manually configure your connection. Your massive noise margin shows you have a great deal of speed in hand. You should get 7-8Mbs.

      The speed has been capped - you're going to need to call Sky to have it uncapped.

      One thing, though. Ensure your set-up within the house is fine as unless DLM has had a joke and capped you for a laugh, you've been capped for a reason. Excessive errors from incorrect set-up is the most common, so ensure all sockets within the premises have filters connected, if sky tv is connected ensure it's correctly filtered and ensure you're using no extension cables to the router.
