      If you reboot your router you will probably get up to the 19Mb. It has not resync for nearly 5 days.

      Line testing has begun again on my line, it begun on 5 September according the My Sky. From what I've read on here DLM/line testing can happen at random intervals to check the line is running at its full potential.

      Nice stats at present (hope it stops like this )

      Very nice.
      And i'm glad you've tacked this post onto the end of this thread.

      It shows a great example of how the improvements made to the DLM software is giving people more for their money.
      18445/1175 to 21023/1212 is a nice jump for 0.

      Thanks gymno.

      Line testing has occurred around I think 2 or 3 times during this year and has resulted in my downstream going from around 17100, then 18400, then in February line testing begun again and it went upto 19006 and my noise margin remained on 6 to 6.5db.
      Prior to the 5 September line testing, my downstream and noise margin were at the levels I mentioned.

      I just hope that the figures I have now stay once line testing has finished

      They might.

      If the error count is low with a target downstream noise margin of 3db, you may even get a little more.

      If the error count is high, it'll probably go back to a noise margin of 6db.
      If that happens, 20 - 21mb is more likely.

      I'd always thought that Sky broadband (not Sky Fibre) was at maximum a 20mb service?

      It was, the rise to 24Mb is another benefit of the newer DLM system.

      I'd like to agree with you but I'm maybe too cynical.

      This change IMHO is to do with marketing. Ofcom ruled some time ago that ISP's can only advertise their upto speeds for a figure that at least 10% of their customer base can get. These DLM changes (I believe) are purely for this purpose. The evil enemy (my name - not Sky's) talktalk announced an increase in their upto speed recently from a similar initiative.

      Personally I think that however you look at it, the customer is the winner.

      When I was first connected to ADSL2+ where I live I could only get 17mb. When I moved to Sky it was 20mb. Had I stayed on ADSL2+ and been moved to Sky's kit I could have got 21 or 22mb. Considering that there are many out there who struggle to get 5mb, I guess a 5mb improvement on the same line is good.

      The reason for all of this is improved chipsets, better knowledge of crosstalk and improved cabling skills from BTO. Perhaps they will stop the use of copper coated aluminium cable too soon.

      However regular members will be acutely aware that the days of ADSL and ADSL2+ is on the cards. With FTTC and FTTP being rolled out across the country, it is just a matter of time before everyone is able to get Fibre or 4G now.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB
      Speedtest: 17.15MB/s 0.97Mb/s Ping 31 ms

      DLM must have rebooted my router during the early hours, here are my current stats:




      Still, its more than 500 kbps higher than what I was on last week.
