      Quick question re. speed

      Hi,
      I have the mid package and below are my stats at 00.30 Saturday, 27th Jan.

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 8096 kbps 416 kbps
      Line Attenuation 27.0 db 18.0 db
      Noise Margin 9.8 db 13.0 db

      When I ordered from Sky they told me that my max expected speed would be 256k! This surprised me as I previously had an 8mb connection with Bulldog (awful, but that's another story). Can someone with more knowledge tell me what speed I may expect if I upgrade to the max package. I don't trust the sale s people at Sky.
      Thanks in advance.

      You have excellent line attenuation.

      On Max you could reasonably expect to connect at something over 15000kbps.

      Thanks very much. I originally wanted Max but I was somewhat alarmed by Sky saying that I wouldn't get more than 256k! Couldn't understand it and still can't. May well upgrade.

      BTW, I've done a couple of speed tests last night and this morning and got 7900 kb/s both times. I'm impressed.
