      I would've expected to see high teens/early 20s with such a low attenuation. Having said that even after the first speed increase it might stay just as high which would be just as good

      Re: Automated?

      As long as you are sure your internal setup is correct, I would not worry about it for the time being. I have seen cases before where with a very low attenuation, the router struggled to come to terms with the figures. I would not be surprised if your speed jumps up to 20 Mb with a still healthy noise margin. Let DLM work its magic and you may be one of the lucky ones who end up with 22-23Mb, get impatient and call Sky and you will be lucky to get 19998
