      Good morning.

      The Downstream Noise Margin appears to be a little low. Providing that this doesn't cause any problems, then you should be just fine.

      Whilst some ISPs use a low Noise Margin quite successfully, Sky's target Noise Margin is 7dB. You may find that if you were to reset your router you may loose a little speed.

      Using the tool that is available on this site, you are in the correct speed range for your line attenuation.

      The Upstream connection speed is just fine.

      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

      Thanks for reply i have mentioned the low noise margin which sometimes at night can go down too as low as 3.3 but was told don't worry about it as long as its stable.
