      Could I get much more out of this?

      Evening, new house, just got sky, was wondering if I could get anything more from my connection as it does seem a little slow. I've checked SamKnows and have LLU on the line, my missus sorted it out and doesn't know which package we have, I assume it's the Connect package, with the following stats would it be worth upgrading to Unlimited/Max?

      Plugged into the test socket, no extensions, etc...

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 3064 kbps 796 kbps
      Line Attenuation 35.0 db 16.0 db
      Noise Margin 6.7 db 12.9 db

      Apologies if I've missed any info.

      ADSL2+ Speed Test

      We estimate your line is capable of between 10mb to 12mb broadband on an ADSL2+ service. This ADSL2 Line Speed Calculator is a best guess only, as to the broadband speed that maybe possible on your telephone line. The checker provides results of up to 24mb with the data that is made available to us. This is purely for indication only and should not be classed as the Line Speed that you would receive on any ADSL or LLU product from another ISP.

      Can't be connect as the upload is too high iirc

      Have you tried the stats from the master socket?

      To me you are already on Unlimited/Max

      I agree with NR, you are on ADSL2+ but something is amiss with your connection. Do you have filters on all the phone extensions that are in use? Are you plugged into the master socket or an extension? Plug into the Test socket, as suggested and post your stats from there.

      A filter on the Sky+HD box is often missed. The installer generally won't provide one for the phone connection.
