      Possibly,

      ADSL2+ Speed Test

      We estimate your line is capable of between 16mb to 24mb 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.

      If you can get Sky to run DLM training again on your line, you may get more, but if it finds any faults you may get less. You are doing quite well considering your line attenuation.
