      Order Date: 23rd Feb
      Migration: New install
      Router Arrived: 27th Feb (although had to re-arrange delivery for the Saturday)
      Connection Due: Advised up to 15days from order. Letter has still not arrived confirming date but have been advised by phone it would have said "5th March"
      Actually Connected: The service was actually available when the router arrived on 1sth March
      Up sync speed: 288Kbps
      Down sync speed: 288Kbps
      Distance from the exchange: 650m approx
      Line Attenuation: 22.0db down / 14.0db up
      Noise Margin: 30.3 db down / 30.0 db up

      I have been advised (after approx 20 phone calls to tech support) that the connection speed should finally be sorted in a few hours - apparently the SNRM is too high and they need to request BT reduce the transmision power....we will see!
