      If i'm correct, then DLM must be running on the line.

      The 'broadband connection details' section of your 'my sky' page should update in a day or so to indicate this.


      Thanks gymno.

      I've just checked in My Sky/My broadband and it shows line testing finished 3 January 2013 (which is when the line testing that begun just after Christmas ended). I'll keep checking back and see if there is any mention as to any new line testing/DLM running.

      Hope the figures stop at what they are now

      My router must have re-booted in the early hours again, here's a screen shot of the new details . Still no line testing showing in My Sky/My Broadband, but that's normally a few days behind anyway

      I didn't think that the noise margin could go down to 3db with Sky?

      Hopefully it will stay at this connection speed for you.

      The new settings for DLM allow this, which is one of the reasons it is being rerun on many lines. The previous setting of 7 db left many lines far short of their full potential.

      I've just checked in My Sky/My Broadband and its now showing:

      "Testing on your broadband connection began on 02/02/2013 and will be completed within 10 days"

      Another reboot in the early hours, but a slight drop in downstream speed but upload speed is still good

      Looks like that's probably it.

      Nice result.

      Line connection testing completed on 07/02/2013, resulting in the following settings:

      Download speed setting
      Your connection has been set to a download speed of up to 19.0Mbps .

      Upload speed setting
      Your connection has been set to an upload speed of up to 1.3Mbps

      Here's my stats:
