      Hi, new user wondering what to expect?

      Hi all, I've just switched from BT back to sky BB (in new house).
      From what I can tell from samknows I'm on a sky LLU and was interested as to what sort of speeds to expect as I was getting 6meg on BT.
      These are my stats after 24 hrs.

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 4095 kbps 605 kbps
      Line Attenuation 24.0 dB 14.5 dB
      Noise Margin 18.2 dB 19.8 dB

      Will this improve much?
      Thanks for any info.
      James.

      Yeah, it should do. When I was on Sky I got 16meg with a line att of 21 so you should be somewhere near that.

      A sync speed of approaching 18meg looks likely with actual throughput of 16meg.

      Just make sure you leave the router on 24/7 though.

      That sounds excellent, thanks.
      The router is always on as well so should be fine.

      Everyone starts at 4meg, with those stats expect to see a big jump in sync, in the next day or two. Good luck.
