      Distance from the exchange - As the crow flies 2.43 km

      This is my second attempt - first attempt failed after a lot of messing around.
      This time went very smoothly, and over the Xmas holidays too - impressive for Sky.

      Spent a week chasing a router that Sky said had no record of sending out and until parcel line had it the couldnt say when it would arrive.( this was the 7th they said this).

      Router arrived 8th December
      So I guess they send routers out without documentation or tracking

      Quite a smooth transition from this point
      Getting speeds I expected but after posting here there could be a chance of more!

      Data rate

      Noise margin
      8.9 15.0

      Output power
      19.4 12.1

      Attenuation

      Question is my up sync speed seem correct for figures above.

      Both your upstream and downstream figures are significantly lower than your line characteristics should deliver. With an attenuation of 34db you have a potential downstream connection speed of 14500kbps.

      This, together with your upstream figure strongly indicate that you have been capped and are not on an ADSL2+ service.
