      Judging by the Line Attenuation you seem to be quite a distance from the exchange?

      Also for that I think it looks kinda OK!

      Would you expect with that sort of connection and levels to have a stable connection?

      (2.5 km)

      For 2.5km Around a max of 4.5-5mb! I think? Im just checking?

      Based on the attenuation you entered, we estimate that your line can support around 4.0 - 8.0 Mbps on ADSL2+.

      Do you think I should be onto SKY BB about this?

      Personally find out what max speed Sky's test come up with, If its over 10mb! Then its a most probably a LIE!

      Do some speedtests!

      Three at

      5am
      5pm
      10pm

      And if they are all under 8mb etc etc, Then downgrade and save some money! Unless you need the "Unlimited (Fair Usage Applies" Usage!

      You stats look about right for that attenuation. The thing with the DSL zone checker is that you are supposed to enter your PRE ADSL2+ attenuation. I copied this from the test page
      Please NOTE: If you are already on an ADSL2+ service, there is no point in using this checker. It is only for people on standard ADSL(including ADSL Max 8 Mbps).
