      New Stats - any good?

      Hi,

      Was wondering if anyone could comment on my router stats (have the F@ST2504n router):

      ADSL Link
      Connection Speed
      Downstream 5020 kbps
      Upstream 797 kbps
      Line Attenuation
      46.0 dB
      27.5 dB
      Noise Margin
      7.1 dB
      12.4 dB

      I only switched to Sky on 5th January, was previously with o2 LLU and was getting just over 6000kbps downstream with just over 1000kbps up. Also any speed tests I do online now only show me as having around 3-4 download speeds.....quite new to this so any comments if I could be getting any more appreciated!

      You could probably get Sky to increase your upstream speed, however , with the downstream you are restricted as Sky run at a higher noise margin than O2 which will explain the differences.

      Having said that I think your downstream speed is perhaps lower than it could be. Just how is the router connected to the phone line?
