      Looking for advice please

      hi
      can you give me an idea of what my speed would be if I joined SKY. My exchange is LLU. This is what I currently get and on the Sky speed checker it says my max is 2mb.


      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 3936 kbps 672 kbps
      Line Attenuation 52 db 15.5 db
      Noise Margin 6 db 10 db

      thanks

      You should get at least the same speed on Sky, you shouls also get your stats from the TEST socket as it looks like your wiring may be hindering the current connection.

      Sky use a higher default noise margin so your speed as things stand would be a bit lower, but not as low as 2Mb.
