      Would it not say in "My Sky" under "Your Connection Details" or will the "Line connection testing completed on 'date'" only be updated when DLM training has completed.

      Re: Ping issue

      Ok, heres what it says on the sky website under "my broadband" section

      Line connection testing completed on 02/12/2011, 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 1.0Mbps .

      I joined sky over 3 years ago and I never knew they had done this DLM at this date lol.

      I agree with Isitme, it would have been nice to know that they were doing the DLM (an email or text message?) as sometimes i switch my router off over night which could affect the DLM.

      Should I ask sky CST to rerun a DLM once the exchange has been "fixed"?

      Reading through some other posts about the new DLM system, it would be interesting to see if the BT engineer was right about my line being perfect

      Ok, just an update. It seems like BTO have upgraded my exchange as the Sky website said, early February.

      It has been "fixed" since 01/02/13 but i wanted to do a few speed tests etc. to make sure lol
      I now have new stats which are the best I've seen since joining Sky :-

      System Up Time: 50:07:58

      Port Status TxPkts RxPkts Collisions Tx B/s Rx B/s Up Time
      WAN MER 6565634 8206314 0 28 0 50:06:45
      LAN Up 252884 150911 0 7781 898 50:07:58
      WLAN Up 208718 135814 0 21 4 50:07:36

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 19999 kbps 1105 kbps
      Line Attenuation 15.0 dB 9.0 dB
      Noise Margin 2.7 dB 8.8 dB


      My ping is very stable at all times of day and here are the results



      Thanks to everyone who helped! The only trouble is... now I've lost my main excuse to why I die so often on Call of duty lol
