      Maybe they moved you over from the easynet dslam's to the broadcom ones

      which would explain the increase in upload due to the matched chipset

      Equipment fails like any others over time. They may well have seen a failure and decided to upgrade the whole line card. Whatever has happened has improved it.

      DLM runs 24/7 and will start a profile optimisation period if it sees fit. The DLM platform was upgraded earlier in the year and Sky were re-running DLM on lines that would benefit from the improved platform - looks like yours was one of them.

      Matched chipset?

      Matched with what?

      Router and the DSLAM - If they are both Broadcom, then they are more compatible so to speak in layman's terms.

      Re: Strange increase in speed sync

      I am not using sky's router. Not done so except for first day and when a firmware update was imminent.

      I use a Billion Bipac 7800N with the latest firmware, ready for fibre when it is available at my exchange.

      The Billion has been in use about 2 months.

      The speed increase is more recent.

      Re: Strange increase in speed sync

      ^^ That uses a Broadcom chipset, so the theory still stands.

      Probably the reason then.

      They must have upgraded / replaced something.

      Not complaining obviously, just curious as it was unexpected.

      Makes up slightly for fibre at my exchange being put back from June to September!

      They have probably swapped something out of our exchange, my connection has been absolute pants the last 24 hours or so.
