      Order Date: 24th Jan 08
      New Connection
      or
      Migration Migrated from Pipex
      Router Arrived 27th Jan 08
      Connection Due 5th Feb 08
      Actually Connected 4th Feb 08
      Up sync speed 384
      Down sync speed 8096
      Distance from the exchange 1000 Mtrs
      Router Sagem 2054
      Line Attenuation 24db downstream
      Line Attenuation 13.5 db upstream
      Noise Margin 14.4db downstream
      Noise Margin 13.0 upstream

      It's all gobbledygook to me but any comments, is it good bad or fair?

      Conclusion: Installation of Sky + and broadband was hasslefree and everything arrived when they said it would, current speed is just under 6mbit I feel it could be a little faster, usually 6.5 - 6.8 mbit with Pipex but early days, I'll keep a eye on it. reason for migration was for tv plus cheaper broadband.

      Order Date 15/01/08
      Migration from Entanet
      Router Arrived 25/01/08
      Connection Due 06/02/08
      Actually Connected 06/02/08
      Up sync speed Entanet 675 kb/s Sky BB 374 k/bs
      Down sync speed Entanet 1942 kb/s SkyBB 2034 k/bs
      Distance from the exchange 4482m

      Order tracking currently shows:
      Your order is progressing fine, but we've had a huge response to Sky Broadband, so you may need to wait up to three working days from your estimated activation date before you can start surfing with Sky Broadband. The estimated date is: 06/02/2008
      I will update this post as soon as I am able to access here via Sky BB and finally after a week or so, once the connection has settled down.

      RTB.

      Order Date :18/02/08
      Migration : Virgin Media
      Router Arrived 21/02/08
      Connection Due 27/02/09
      Actually Connected 27/02/08
      Distance from Exchange 2292 meters
      Up sync speed: 760kbps
      Down sync speed: 10542kbps
      Line Attenuation: 34db (Down) 8db (Up)
      Noise Margin: 7db (Varies)

      NB: Noise Margin has been all over the place. Initially it was 3, then dropped to 1 (Down speed got as high as 113xx kbps), and at one time was some huge number - which I believe is a negative reading (i.e. more noise than signal, no gap/margin between noise and signal). I dug around my bits and pieces box and tried a different brand of Filter and the Noise Margin is now hovering around 7db which is a lot better. There are a lot of factors, some of them transient, that will affect the Noise Margin - last night was cold, wet and windy, I am on an overhead cable to a pole 150m away, the wire runs through a tree which was doing a rather spectacular dance in the wind. This morning is dry, breezy, sunny and so the conditions are somewhat different. One to keep an eye on. Although it has to be said that none of that was impacting my speedtests.
