      Provided that you are connected to the Master Socket, using the short ADSL lead supplied with the router and are using a good filtered faceplate or microfilter, there isn't a great deal more that can be achieved.

      Someone at Sky may be able to improve things, but to be honest I personally would suggest that you may have the best speed your connection can currently handle.

      If you compare your stats to those in my signature you'll see that you've more or less go Sky's maximum anyway. They can't set it manually much above 20mb and your noise margins are around 7dB. Only DLM would be able to better these settings and it hasn't in your case.

      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

      Indeed, you can. To be honest, though, your speeds are solid as it is. DLM may set you higher, but you're not talking a big increase in anything really that noticeable. And I'm stressing a big if in regards to whether it'd set you higher.
