      You should get a downstream connection around 19,000kbps, or around 16Mb for throughput, provided that you are not in a block of flats or you have any wiring issues..

      The best thing for you to do now is to fit & use a filtered faceplace and ensure that you are using the short grey ADSL lead supplied with the router.

      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

      Hi Scubbie

      im connected to test socket there is no other wires used filter. I live in the house.

      19 Mbps that would be fastest internet i ever had

      before i used to have talk talk max speed 6 Mbps and they blocked utorrent so i could download only at 70 kB/s

      at the moment with SKY even the speed isnt full yet im downloading at 900 kB/s

      I get 1300kBps out of my 15meg connection so yours will really fly.

      If you're saying "wooooow" now I wonder what you'll say when your torrent speed is 1.6meg.

      Impressed with the upload speed of 1245kbps.

      Must have a very good line. Your upstream stats are somewhat unheard of on Sky LLU.

      Tonight your downstream will be uncapped.

      Should be able to get 1.8MB/s on torrents..

      what I did was well I soldered wire from outside directly to Filter Sky provide i know it helped cus noise went up about 3 dB

      there was even moment when attenuation was showing 16 dB I dont know what i Did that it went from 19 dB to 16 dB but latter after i rebooted router it increassed again to 19dB, maybe it was DLM or something.

      i wonder about few things:

      if i bought better router and better filter would it help lower attenuation and noise more?.

      and other question. if BB wire is going about 20 meters along with powered electric wire does this electric wire affect noise and attenuation ?

      BB wire from outside is going to my home along water pipes and metal gutter does this affect noise and attenuation too ?

      Wow i have never seen anyone with 1245 upstream on sky

      there's me thinking im the bee's knees with 1216

      got any pictures of how you soldered it

      i could be tempted to solder direct to my nte-2000

      The lower attenuation you experienced temporarily was due to the fact your router either trained in at G.DMT or ADSL2 instead of ADSL2+. Sometimes this happens.

      The answer to whether you will benefit from a quality filter is something you will have to find out yourself. A better filter won't lower your attenuation but it might give you more noise margin.

      You will certainly benefit from a better router but the extent depends on how the Sky router performs on your line once truly uncapped. It would be best to wait for DLM to finish.

      You can copy paste your traceroute here meanwhile. (Go to CMD -> 'tracert bbc.co.uk')

      It can in some cases. Depends on the quality and condition of the electrical wire. Usually it doesn't.

      No chance.

      The upstream frequencies on the ADSL line are far more senstive to any kind of noise/interference. You've got very good upstream figures hence it will be safe to conclude there is no interference on your line.

      Ps: I too and am looking forward to a picture of the soldering you've done.
