I was wondering if my upload speed could be any higher. here's my stats
ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
Connection Speed 11683 kbps 838 kbps
Line Attenuation 36.5 dB 20.0 dB
Noise Margin 7.0 dB 9.0 dB

Re: upload speed
With your current Line Attenuation you appear to be getting the best from your connection. The tool on this site gives a predicted connection of 10 to 12Mb and you are at the top end of this. The noise margin for the downstream is 7dB, which is Sky's target.
I would be inclined to check your connections locally to ensure that you are making the most of everything else. For example, do you have an NTE5 master socket? If this is the case, then a filtered faceplate would be a good idea, particularly if you also have any extensions.
You can prove whether or not a filtered faceplate would be beneficial by using the Test Socket behind the faceplate on the NTE5 socket.
Also if you are using a telephone extension lead, try connecting directly to the master socket with the short grey ADSL lead supplied by Sky.
For some more tips, see this page: ::. Kitz - Improve your adsl connection speed .::
When you have gone through all of those, repost your stats so we can see if there has been any improvement. We are not looking at just the connection speed, but also the other figures which I mentioned (noise margin & line attenuation) on both the upstream & downstream connection.

Re: upload speed
You look to be on an easynet dslam with that upstream
try opening a command prompt
if hop 2 is *.easynet.net
if you replaced your router with a conexant chipset you would get more
mine went from 984 to 1216 by matching the dslam chipset to the modem
this isnt of interest to most people
but if money is no object
im just pointing the option out
