      Hi all,

      Order Date - 14 March 2007
      New Connection
      or
      Migration - Migration
      Router Arrived - 22 March 2007
      Connection Due - 23 March 2007
      Actually Connected - 23 March 2007
      Up sync speed - 6688 kbps (49db att, 6.7db)
      Down sync speed - 768 kbps
      Distance from the exchange - 2.84 kilometres from exchange (as the crow flies).

      Quite pleased at the moment, SKY have kept all their promises, connecting about 2mb more than was on AOL Platinum (they told me up to 4.6mb when I ordered which is what I had with AOL) as well! Will try & post my router stats when susssed out but I reckon my speed is great, been downloading at 580-590kbps.......A Happy bunny!

      Red face Re: Activated now then please post info here

      Order Date = 14/03/07 (Sky Mid 8Mbps)
      New Connection or Migration = Migration (from UK Online LLU)
      Router Arrived = 26/03/07 (had to call them as not received by activation date, then it was sent out on next day delivery)
      Connection Due = 20/03/07
      Actually Connected = 20/03/07
      Up sync speed = 416kbps
      Down sync speed = 8096kbps
      Distance from the exchange = 1.90 kilometres (as crow flies)

      I was able to migrate without any downtime as my UK Online equipment still worked after I was activated on Sky (I assume because they were both on the Easynet system in the Exchange?) so the fact that the router was delayed a few days didn't bother me!

      Order date: 14th March 2007
      Migrated from another ISP: Plusnet (Tiscalli LLU)
      Activation date: 22nd March 2007
      Activated on: 22nd March 2007
      Router Arrived: 27th March 2007
      Upstream Synch: 448 kbps
      Downstream Synch: 3648 kbps
      Distance from exchange: 3.6Km as the crow flies

      So far so good. Seems fair bit faster than Plusnet was. Only down point was the long wait for the Router.

      Order Date 21 March
      A Migration
      Router Arrived 27th March
      Connection Due 30th March
      Actually Connected 31st March
      Up sync speed 768 Kbps
      Down sync speed 6784 Kbps

      Noise Margin 6.8 dB 14.0 dB
      Line Attenuation 43.0 dB 24.5 dB

      Distance from the exchange 1.3km

      Connection was actually active on the 30th, but Sky hardware could not detect DSL signal. My other two spare routers could, using my Voyager 210 at the moment, Sky still looking at my router problem. Great connection, generally a happy bunny!

      Order Date 10 March
      A Migration
      Router Arrived 15 March
      Connection Due 23 March
      Actually Connected 23 March
      Up sync speed 764 Kbps
      Down sync speed 6484 Kbps

      Noise Margin 7.1 dB 12.5 dB
      Line Attenuation 33.5 dB 19.8 dB

      Distance from the exchange 940metres (crow flies) 1.4Km (Autoroute)

      Connected up and running first off in as much time as it took to plug the router in, no probem. Sadly the telephone stopped receiving incoming calls at the same instant the LLU connection was set, cutting off the caller with not so much as a by your leave. BT still investigating (head scratching), Sky broadband working perfectly.

      Edit: Sorted, engineer carried on working after fault was cleared and now both voice and data enabled with no problems - other than now trying to get MORE speed...
