      ^ Agreed. But it's hidden behind a desk. Shouldn't be a cosmetic issue.

      Well, I'll see what speeds/stability I get after DLM, then decide if I need one.

      Re: Finally got connected today

      So its been 3 full days now since activation, DLM hasnt kicked in yet.

      WAN (or MER?) was updated once, about 2 hours after initial activation (last update was 70 hours ago at the time of writing this) with these figures:
      Connection Speed 4095 kbps 606 kbps
      Line Attenuation 12.0 dB 8.7 dB
      Noise Margin 15.3 dB 16.4 dB

      Should I give them a call?
      My MySky page still doesnt show that my phone and BB have been activated yet.

      It will probably start tonight, that is in the early hours of the morning. If it doesn't then a call may be in order.

      Re: Finally got connected today

      So DLM finally started.

      Judging from what I saw elsewhere in the forum, seems I hit the 7db noise margin a bit early


      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 16381 kbps 1101 kbps
      Line Attenuation 12.0 dB 8.2 dB
      Noise Margin 7.1 dB 8.8 dB

      is there room for improvement here?

      It's not that you 'hit it early' - you were just configured in one go. You should really be able to get more but going by that noise margin that's your lot

      I thought the same a few days ago when I only had the single jump made by the DLM. Since then a minor adjustment gave me nearly an extra meg.

      I was with Orange previously & their DLM took ages so I too was surprised at the speed of the adjustment.

      Sky get a gold star for their DLM.
