      Smile Just been activated after a little problem!

      Hello everyone, look at these very helpful forums over the years and this is my first post!

      Got sky talk and Sky Broadband Unlimited activated today.

      Had an issue with a bad quality line, but when i took the cover off the box on the side of my house one of the terminals was badly corroded so i moved it to a spare way! (electrical engineer) Sky anytime+ is all running and looks like a good service.

      Here are my stats:

      DSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 4095 kbps 605 kbps
      Line Attenuation 42.0 db 23.6 db
      Noise Margin 10.8 db 17.7 db

      How are they looking? Any idea of Speeds after DLM?

      Just come from virgin 20mb and know im going to get knowhere near those speeds, but im saving a lot of money and gain anytime+

      This is from the test socket, doesn't make any difference if the face plate is on or not. Ive got no other phone sockets in the house.

      Hope this helps.

      I would estimate you will get up to about 8 Meg. I used to get between 8-10 on an attenuation of 40.5.
