      worried about DLM speed

      Ive just moved home, about 1.5m from the exchange. New Line fitted (sky)

      DLM has been on since saturday so got a few more days yet. but so far am only getting:

      downstream: 3066kbps line: 52.5db noise: 10.2db
      upstream: 796kbps line: 30.5db noise: 11.5db

      it rebooted once on the first day of DLM and has been up since.
      is 3mb the fastest im looking at then ? or am I worrying to much.

      Should get 4Mbps-ish assuming DLM works properly. If not a call to Sky will sort you out

      Unfortunately as you're a fair distance from the exchange you won't be getting a lot more, you may be 1.5km straight line but that line is more like 4-5km (my parents are 3.5km from their exchange and have a 45db attenuation and get 5-6Mbps)

      Re: worried about DLM speed

      You are on ADSL2+

      How are you connecting the router? Are you plugging it in to the Master socket using only the cable supplied by Sky? Is everything you have connected to the phone line running through a filter?

      Then you've no hope in hell of getting 11Mbps. Your line is a lot longer than the straight line distance and short of moving house there's nothing you can do to change that bar getting VM
