      New Sky Broadband - Question on my Stats

      Hi there - I have just signed up for Sky broadband which was activated yesterday.

      I came over to Sky BB from BT ADSL Max due to the limited DL/UL speeds with BT and the faxct that Sky said I could achieve between 9.6Mbps - 16.4Mbps on my line.

      Below are my stats from my Sagem Fast 2504n router.

      Question - I was achieving approx 6800 kpbs DL and 370kbps UL with BT, I am currently achieving a lot less on the Sky DL speed - I realise I am in a 10 period of line "analysis" via DLM but was wondering based on my stats if anyone could let me know what I could realistically achieve after the 10 day period?

      Many thanks.

      System Up Time: 18:49:18

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 4095 kbps 605 kbps
      Line Attenuation 31.0 dB 18.0 dB
      Noise Margin 17.2 dB 18.6 dB

      12-14 Mb I would estimate. DLM usually starts within 3 days and when it does, will update your speed in the early hours.

      It will go down to around 7 db when your speed increases to its full potential..

      Exactly, the higher the noise margins you start with, the higher the finished speed should be.

      Re: New Sky Broadband - Question on my Stats

      Looks like DLM reset the WAN connection at approx 3:00am today and increased the connection speeds - so on Day 2 my new stats are ...

      ADSL Link------------ Downstream Upstream

      Connection Speed--- 6142 kbps---- 798 kbps
      Line Attenuation------ 31.5 dB------- 17.7 dB
      Noise Margin---------- 15.3 dB------- 16.5 dB
