      The noise margin has gone up-to 2.6db now, the speeds however are very stable still

      DLM has not been happy with the previous setting, probably too many errors and it looks like it has raised the noise margin to 6 db. With a bit of luck it will stay at that and it will be your final speed. Not bad for a very long line.

      Yeah, if the speed stays as it is then I'll be more than happy, its stable and more than quick enough for general browsing, its very rare I download big files so I'm happy with what I have

      It is refreshing to see someone who does not want to squeeze the last kilobit out of his connection,

      Thanks, yeah all I want is simply an Internet connection which is quick enough for everyday browsing and doesn't cost the earth Virgin Media's internet and phone service was costing 33 a month where as Sky's service is 19.75

      DLM is once again not happy with the low noise margin which is no surprise

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 2475 kbps 604 kbps
      Line Attenuation 64.0 dB 39.6 dB
      Noise Margin 5.9 dB 11.8 dB

      It is a pity your upload seems to be capped at 608kbps, I would have thought you would get a bit more.
