      MAX Sky sync and actual download speed

      Just got connected in the last month and wanted to know what the max speed you can get from Sky's network.

      Connection Speed 15,323 Kbps / 766 Kbps
      Line Attenuation 23.5 db 17.3 db
      Noise Margin 12.6 db 12.0 db
      About 780m from exchange Samknows.com

      Actual Download speeds 10-12,000 Kbps
      Any one able to see speeds above 12mbps? I would like to hope that the advertised speeds of 16Mb are possible. Though Im not complaining Its a vast improvement to my previous ISPs, the speeds I get are constant throughout the day.

      The best actual download speed I've had from my connection was 1.32 Mb/s sustained (downloading from Astraweb news servers). That was with a sync speed of around 12800. My usual sync is somewhere between 11200 and 12000.

      I don't use any web-based speed tests as the conditions affecting the results are far too variable.

      Unfortunately my connection is so unstable I have to reboot my router at least twice a day....
