      Have you gone live yet? You would need to post stats from your router. There are a few things that nake up what speed you could potentially get. 1 of them is the distance of the line from the exchnage to your home. But the quality of the line effects this as well how you will have the equipment set up in your home e.g running an extension lead. Those are just a couple of things. You can get a reserved estimate by going to a website such as samknows and typing in your postcode. But the really truth is you won't know until it's set up. Sky will also run testing over the first 10 days this is called dynamic line management this will continually run tests on your connection and find the correct stable speed for your line.

      from the postcode search on Kitz.co.uk is shows upto 7.5MB. If you know what your phone number is go to kitz.co.uk select adsl line checker and enter your phone number and postcode and this will give you a conservative estimate.

      it's more accurate with the phone number. Just done myne to check and it states upto 15meg with just my postcode. When I include my phone number it shows upto 20meg.
