      Hello Lettice
      So You went for it then ....
      No brainer really same price & term as the previous deal.
      Were You offered the New Hub although not needed in your case same as Me?
      Any mention of the 9.95 upgrade charge.
      Just checked Hub status shows 75 / 19999 So appears fairly solid.

      Just a Thought...............

      Yes was offered a new er115 hub for free.
      I declined as I already had one (the one I am using) when sky upgraded the sr102 way back when I was on sky broadband unlimited and when I went to Sky Q they sent out another, so really do not want two sitting idle.

      Impressed that the activation only takes a day, but not happened yet...

      Re: Just back to sky - but...

      All activated fine;

      Connection Speed 73704 kbps 18853 kbps
      Line Attenuation 18.2 dB 19.9 dB
      Noise Margin 6.3 dB 6.6 dB

      First few hours speedtest was 50/17
      But now have 71/18

      Line attuention above for Fibre Max is the same as I had on my reliable fibre unlimited as shown here;
      Connection Speed 39998 kbps 9995 kbps
      Line Attenuation 18.1 dB 19.9 dB
      Noise Margin 17.0 dB 12.12 dB
      I got the full max speed for that 39/9.9 to 41/10 with speedtests

      On Adsl with Sky I use to get speedtests of 19.4mbps download and 1.4mbps upload.

      Just did my garden walk at back of house with a few different wifi devices using the Sky Q hub wifi.
      At 50 foot from the router I get 45mbps download and 17mbps upload
      At 75 feet I get 35mbps and 15mbps
      At 100 feet I get 20mbps and 13mbps.
      After that it drops off dramatically.

      Very happy so far

      line attenuation 16.9dB & 21.1dB
      noise margin 3.3dB & 7.7dB
      Seems quite stable at present but time will tell in the meantime .............Happy Bunny.....

      Line Attenuation 17.9 dB 19.6 dB
      Noise Margin 6.4 dB 6.6 dB


      Speedtests are showing me me 76 and 19 with a latency of 4ms.

      Hello Lettice
      Well like You, My 10 days have come to an end & all appears very stable had a few adjustments but it seems
      that Sky's statement & BT site info was correct in fact almost on the button ........!!!!

      I understand from a friend that Openreach is due to carry out some upgrade & rework on our Huawei Cab
      very soon So I am unsure if that will change the stats in the future.

      Connection Speed 77.465 Kbps download 19.999 Kbps Upload
      Line Attenuation 16.9 dB & 21.1 dB : DNS Response Time 12.4 ms
      Noise Margin 3.3 dB & 7.7 dB : Latency 7.92 ms
      Huawei Cab : 380 yrds So Happy Bunny..............


      Bonus All at No Extra Cost.....So Maybe I can talk the Boss into taking SkyQ

      Just a Thought........Have a Good Weekend
