      Question Will my Line ever give Faster speeds than this?

      Hi, When I first got Sky Broadband Unlimited 20Mb I used to get 2Mb speeds and about 0.34Mb upload and now I get around 4Mb download and 0.64Mb upload. I was wondering if my Line could provide faster speeds? Sky's Speed checker for my Line shows an estimate of 5.0 - 11.4Mbps. Also, The ADSL2 and Line Speed Calculator shows 9Mb - 10Mb on an ADSL2 Service. Also, I have no Extension Sockets in the house.

      Here is my Router Stats:
      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 4785 kbps 796 kbps
      Line Attenuation 39.5 db 20.9 db
      Noise Margin 6.5 db 11.0 db

      Re: Will my Line ever give Faster speeds than this?

      ADSL2+ Speed Test

      We estimate your line is capable of between 9mb to 10mb 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.

      Try getting your stats from the test socket?

      Noise Margin 8.1 db 9.1 db

      Re: Will my Line ever give Faster speeds than this?

      With the router plugged in to the test socket, give Sky a call and ask them to re-run DLM again. Your noise margin has gone up, so assuming this is brought down to 6db, you should see you connection speed increase.

      If your router is plugged in to the master socket, then you could benefit from a VDSL plate.

      Would Activating Gaming Profile have made my noise margin go up by any chance? I Just recently got it put on.

      Possibly, but only if the gaming profile brought your connection speed down. With a lower connection speed, there may be more margin.

      It looks like you are on the 4608/864 gaming profile, which may increase your noise margin slightly.
