      Just connected! :)

      Hi All,

      just got connected today to SkyBB Unlimited.

      Activated on Friday, router arrived today..

      Current Stats below. Im in the test Socket and DLM hasnt started yet. What do you think i can expect?


      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 4096 kbps 512 kbps
      Line Attenuation 20.5 dB 15.0 dB
      Noise Margin 18.9 dB 14.0 dB

      I understand they put it straight on 4MB to start with..

      Cheers

      You should be looking at 16Mbps+

      Sweet

      Moved house recently and before was getting around 6Mbps on ADSL. So this will be a nice upgrade..

      Is it worth investing in a filtered faceplate for my master socket?

      Thanks for the post

      Re: Just connected! :)

      Whats the real difference in using a filtered faceplate instead of a standard microfilter? do you gain any extra performance?

      Day 4 of DLM

      DL hasnt changed much over the 2 days and UL has marginally. Connection was not reset last night for the first night. Does this mean DLM has finished?

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 11260 kbps 955 kbps
      Line Attenuation 24.5 dB 14.4 dB
      Noise Margin 16.3 dB 7.5 dB

      Reckon a few more MB can be squeezed from the DL....

      That's interesting. Your noise margin has improved drastically. If it stays that way you will probably end up on 17ish meg.

      You may want to go to the broadband page on your my sky account to see if DLM has finished or not.
