      There was no outage, I was advised to bounce the router which I did, and lo and behold it came back up.

      Whilst I was on the phone they ramped up the speed too. They advised the system could only take my line up to 16mb/17mb currently. Which I am more than happy with.

      Here are my current stats:

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 16986 kbps 921 kbps
      Line Attenuation 20.5 db 10.1 db
      Noise Margin 7.3 db 10.0 db


      They did say give it a few more days and call us back and we may be able to take it higher?

      What do you think, could it go higher?

      Cheers

      Personally, I just think its fine as it is, but if you genuinely want to go faster, you can, but for me, I think I'm fine as I'am.

      Note: My line speed has increased by 200kbps.

      My stats:
      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 16301 kbps 1146 kbps
      Line Attenuation 23.0 db 11.7 db
      Noise Margin 6.8 db 8.3 db

      Question Re: Activated now then please post info here

      Hi,

      I am a new Sky BB unlimited user, having moved from Plus.net.

      DLM has now been running for 6 days and I get

      DSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 9213 kbps 852 kbps
      Line Attenuation 35.5 db 18.6 db
      Noise Margin 9.1 db 8.5 db

      The Noise Margin at this time of day (16:15hrs) is about a low as it gets. I seem to have been at these speeds since about the second day of DLM. I am plugged into the master socket (I do not have extensions). As the crow flies I am less than 600m from my exchange but via road the distance is about 2.1km.

      Please can someone advise if I can expect better speed and should I try test socket or wait until DLM finishes?

      Regards

      You should see 10+Mb. If you don't have extensions, the Test socket should be the same, but you could try it, just in case your faceplate is a bit dodgy. What did you get with Plusnet?

      Thanks for the reply.

      With plus.net it was up to 8Mb ADSL max. I synced at 7616Kbs which I was pleased with.

      Re: Activated now then please post info here

      This thread is a bit pointless now, as all lines capable of it will start at 4 Mb, until DLM kicks in and raises it.

      Activated today, had somebody skip DLM for me. Quite happy. One note of interest though, my downstream atn went fom 26db to 32db. I expected some rise due to going from ads1 to adsl2 but not quite that much. Stats for day 1 :

      Connection Speed 13544 kbps 1114 kbps
      Line Attenuation 32 db 7 db
      Noise Margin 9 db 9 db
