      Should I request DLM or manual line setting?

      Since first having Sky unlimited and since DLM was run I have realised that I didn't have micro filters everywhere so have possibly improved things by fixing this.

      I currently using a D-ling DSL-2740R syncing consistently at 3072 (DLM set the line at 3.1MB)
      SNR varies a little but today is 6.4 down and 9.8 up.
      Attenuation is 61/37.9

      Am I already getting the best I can expect or should I ask Sky to re-run DLM or manually set the line now that I have the correct filters and tidier phone extensions in place.

      Thanks for any input.

      You are currently getting the best speeds your line can handle, if you ask sky to put you back on DLM or ask to configure your line manually your line might end up worse, 3Mbps sync for a 61db line is quite impressive.
