      Can someone predict my approximate connection speed?

      Sky LLU is being activated for me on Thursday this week. I was wondering if anyone knows if my speed is likely to increase from what I'm currently getting with BT Wholesale.

      These are my current BTw ADSL2+ line stats...

      Connection Speed 2268 kbps 856 kbps
      Line Attenuation 54.0 db 29.9 db
      Noise Margin 8.6 db 4.7 db

      On the face of it if you are on ADSL2+ now, and you appear to be, you are not going to get any more from Sky. However with your attenuation you should have nearly double this speed, so something is causing interference on your line. Try plugging into the master socket and copy and paste your stats from there.

      With the same Line Attenuation 54 as you have this is what i get as a guide.


      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 4091 kbps 796 kbps
      Line Attenuation 54 db 33 db
      Noise Margin 7 db 14 db
