      Thank You Sky

      couple of weeks ago i rang sky, as the wlan time on my router kept resetting itself, and connection kept dropping every couple of days or so, tier 1 decided to retest my line, since this has been completed i couldnt be happier, as my stats show longest uptime and wlan time ive ever had since joining sky.

      You should ask them to move you to G.DMT. Should be more stable and might sync at a higher speed too.

      I used to be G.DMT, and was only achieving speeds of about 2.4mbps, and disconnections every 4-5 days, since sky have retested, im getting greater speeds with a more stable connection, so im a bit hesitant to move over. Thanks for your suggestion

      Each line behaves differently to be honest. If yours likes ADSL2+ keep it on it. Usually it's the other way round on longer lines but I have seen cases where ADSL2+ is better then G.DMT on certain longer lines so yh by all means enjoy yourself

      That is perfectly OK. Considering the time you have been connected your errors a quite low, you have nothing to worry about.
