      It will increase when your line is activated if your line is capable of more. Post the full stats from the router.

      That is a very widely spaced estimate, there is a vast difference between 2.5 and 12.2 Mb, In fact as an estimate it is useless. I don't know how Sky can get away with that, they would be as well saying you will get between 512kb and 20 Mb.

      Until we see the stats we cannot even give a guesstimate.

      You have quite a long line so will not get a great speed. I would estimate somewhere between 2 and 3 Mb. You should be plugged into your master socket using only the ADSL cable supplied by Sky, no telephone extensions. Any other extensions which are used must have a filter plugged first into the socket.
