      Re: Activated now then please post info here

      It's a while ago now.

      But it was a seemless transaction from AOL to Sky.

      I changed over due to the cost saving. Got my MAC code thingy, gave it to SKy. I had about a two/three week change over. Delay, where the AOL had to run out and the Sky start.

      I remeber coming in from work (still having the AOL router plugged in etc) and thinking BL***Y thing has gone wrong, no internet etc etc. Then checked the letter stating the day of change over, plugged in the new Sky router. Hey presto, back in to the 21st centry.

      Please note.....my line attenuation and Noise Margin should give me faster b'band. But it seems SKY have me initially on GDMT not ADSL 2+. In the process of getting it rectified. ^_^

      Re: Activated now then please post info here

      It was about about 6 weeks ago.

      Router arived one week before activation date, however plugged in the box, and I was connected.

      DownStream Connection Speed 8128
      UpStream Connection Speed 448
      Line Attenuation 2.0 db 0.0 db
      Noise Margin 12.9 db 20.0 db

      Obviously on the connect, would love my exchanged to be unbundled as I am about 80 meters away (line distance) added 10 meters as well for cable in exchange.

      Not bad stats eh ! !
