      Order Date: 17/09/07
      Migration: 18/09/07
      Router Arrived: 25/09/07
      Connection Due: 26/09/07
      Actually Connected: 26/09/07
      Up sync speed: 764 kbps - attenuation 20.8 db - noise margin 10.0 db
      Down sync speed: 10089 kbps - attenuation 35.0 db - noise margin 7.5 db
      Distance from the exchange: 1.1km

      So far, so good. Migration from ezeeDSL (a...holes) was planned for 26/09 and took place on 26/09.

      The line went dead on 26/09/07 but BT fixed it this morning, 27/09. I was able to log on, which suggests the BT engineer who migrated my broadband made a mistake, rectified quickly (pf...).

      On first connexion, my download speed was just under 14000 kbps, but the router now indicates the above value. I don't know why the sudden drop. Still, decent speed.
