      I've been connected to Sky Unlimited now for 12 days. In that time there has been no evidence from Sky that any DLM has been going on - on My Sky, it said "Line testing is not currently in progress" the whole time. I'm not complaining, as I won't be able to get a better speed than I do now (in fact, I'm guessing my line would be capped at a lower speed), but I'm still interested to know whether Sky will attempt DLM sometime in the future. I assume I'm on G.DMT at the moment, although I don't know for sure. Is there any way to persuade the Sky Router to tell me which flavour of ADSL it's using?.

      Stats:

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 3904 kbps 512 kbps
      Line Attenuation 60.0 db 31.5 db
      Noise Margin 6.3 db 12.0 db

      It's on g.dmt. Stats are actually very good as you said and I'd also hope DLM doesn't run!

      Not bad for everyday lite!!! Link

      Just moved into a new flat and BB has now finally been activated after nearly 4 weeks.

      Day one stats as follows:-

      Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 15743 kbps 945 kbps
      Line Attenuation 18.0db 10.4db
      Noise Margin 6.8db 10.8db

      my old place had sky unlimited and I rarely got 8mg so am pleasantly surprised but im sure it will fluctuate in the next 10 days

      It is sometimes connected before the due date. If you don't have a broadband connection at the moment, just plug it in and wait for the ADSL light to go green. If you have a broadband connection, wait till it drops, then plug it in.

      Hi all,
      First post on this forum so a big hello to you all.
      Sky Broadband Unlimited ordered on the 8th November, delivered on the 12th November and went live on the 23rd November.
      Sagem router.
      Stats from day 1 are as follows:
      System Up Time: 11:20:12
      Port Status TxPkts RxPkts Collisions Tx B/s Rx B/s Up Time
      WAN PPPoA 289463 540557 0 8048 371915 6:50:30
      LAN 549674 298874 0 377399 12158 11:20:12
      WLAN 17401 4796 0 0 0 11:19:44
      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 4092 kbps 605 kbps
      Line Attenuation 46.5 db 27.0 db
      Noise Margin 2.8 db 16.1 db

      Sky reckon I can get around 4.0meg so that looks to be where we currently are with testing.
      Any thoughts from anyone on what I might get in the end?
      Router is plugged into nearest socket to the master socket as I cannot put it there yet, will do so after the testing - hopefully.
