      Sky 20Mbps - fastest possible?

      I'm currently in week 2 of "training" and getting:

      DownStream Connection Speed - 19998 kbps
      UpStream Connection Speed - 1146 kbps

      What would be the maximum speed possible with 20Mbps?

      If you mean transfer speed, about 85-90% of your connection speed (which is 20Mbps already)

      That is a trained speed for 20Mb. Some have gone up to 22Mb but this is very unusual and more than actually being paid for

      I sync at 23068 down

      My upload sync is lower than others though, at only 796 but I'm not going to mention this to Sky as I'd much rather keep my faster download sync speed anyway.

      Re: Sky 20Mbps - fastest possible?

      I've mentioned this elsewhere on this forum, but I actually liked having an upload speed of 2.3Mb with another ISP when on a trial with Annex m. My download was 15.4Mb at this time.

      It enabled me to transfer (legitimate) files to a website more easily than my current speed does.

      As for streaming video content, 15.4Mb was just as nice as my current 16.8Mb connection is.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB
      Speedtest: 17.15MB/s 0.97Mb/s Ping 31 ms
