      Hey all

      I've been on the BT wholesale rubbish for some time now (Sky Connect) tonight was the night i was set to be switched over to LLU which around 30 mins ago it happened, the adsl router cut off the web and within 5 mins it was back again all as expected...

      buutttt...

      its now reconnected at a slower speed, i used to get 8mbit down and 448kbit up

      i now get

      DownStream Connection Speed 4095
      UpStream Connection Speed 605

      is this going to be perminent?! i can't even watch BBC Iplayer in HD now... :-(

      No, you are starting at the 4mb limit, DLM will kick in and run on the line, this can take 10 days and you should not turn off the router during this time.

      Post your stats and we can give you a good idea what you are going to end up with.

      It'll be at least 8Mbps if that's what you had on Connect

      You should get 16Mbps+ but noise margin is a bit low

      really?

      what "should" it be? i thought the quieter the better? lol

      sky speed checker says exactly the same as you predicted.. roll on 10 days time

      will it just bump the speed up in one go at the end of 10 days or can i expect small and steady increases in speed over time?

      Higher the noise margin = higher the potential speed

      The router will resync in the early hours of the morning and bump your speed up. Remember to keep your router plugged in and powered up.
