      dont worry i wont be over the top with sfi, i just hope he does his job and expore every possible avenue.

      as for pos speed quote:
      When you purchased Sky Broadband, we estimated that the maximum download speed for your line was11.2Mbps - 18.0Mbps.

      isitme, if i hack my white router and fix the noise margin to say 5, do you expect that i will see a improovement in sync speed or have i got my self mixed up with that
      If you manage to lower the noise margin, you will see an increase in sync speed, how much I just don't know.

      With the noise margin so low, I would be surprised if it does not drop out or reduce the actual throughput when the line gets busy. But it does prove that Sky did not lie when they said they had uncapped your line.

      The low sync is due to the condition of your line.P

      I would also suggest that it would be a good idea to check the detailed router stats. Take a look at the CRC errors. If this is too high, then DLM will reduce your connection.

      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
      Speedtest: 17.15MB/s 0.97Mb/s Ping 31 ms
