      Downstream, no. Upstream, yes.

      you can give sky a call and either say to tier 1 that you think your upstream can increase some people in tier 1 have access to change you line settings.

      Otherwise you might have to try and get through to CST and they can definitely do it.

      Have you tried plugging into the test socket and taking your stats from there? Your sync speed is at least 50% down on the norm.

      You could have a faulty faceplate, plug it in the test socket using nothing but the filter and cable supplied by Sky. Post the stats.

      Hi looks like you will need to buy another faceplate. Your downstream can now get a bit more also the upstream should go up to 1mb

      Bit strange that the downstream SNR increased by the same as the upstream SNR fell.
