      Firstly, please don't post the same question twice, it causes confusion.

      DLM will kick in between the hours of 1am to 6am. Typically it is around 2-3am. It will normally start from either the first night to up to the third night.

      Once started it will normally last up to 10 days.

      Missing one night due to a power cut should not affect you progress too much. I would suggest that you post your stats once you are connected so that you can be provided a suitable estimate of your likely speed.

      In the mean time, if you look around this forum you will see lots of tips & tricks to gain the best from your Sky BB connection. Typical suggestions include:

      * don't use your router on an extension lead
      * identify the master socket in your home, this is the best location to use for your router
      * use the grey ADSL cable supplied with the modem
      * the Micro-Filter _must_ be the first item plugged into the telephone socket and all extensions, this specifically includes the Sky STB telephone lead and any other telephone equipment
      * if you have an NTE5 Master socket, then the purchase & installation of a Filtered Faceplate is highly recommended

      There are others, so have a good read.

      Using my phone and posting over HSPA usually results in me having to check it i posted once or more than once.
