      Typically, if you're non-svbn then the starting 'profile' is 4096/512. If on SVBN, then it's usually 4096/608. Easiest way to tell if you're on SVBN is to call 17070 from your landline and if you get through to 'BT testing facility', then you're still on BT's voice 'network', but if it gets through to 'Zoe', then you're on SVBN.

      Up sync speed - 1st Day: 605 kbps /2nd Day: 945 kbps
      If that is the case it just means you went straight on to DLM (ADSL2+) Usually it starts on G.DMT with the speeds quoted by User05. Post your full stats, distance is no good when calculating speeds.

      Re: Activated now then please post info here

      Thanks for the advice.

      First set of stats taken just after Sky activated -

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 4095 kbps 605 kbps
      Line Attenuation 25.0 db 8.1 db
      Noise Margin 13.6 db 17.0 db

      Stats on second day had changed to -

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 16382 kbps 945 kbps
      Line Attenuation 26.0 db 15.2 db
      Noise Margin 7.6 db 10.6 db

      IP profile with previous non-LLU ISP was 6500 kbps, so obviously a big step up from that, if they're close to what I finally get after DLM completes.

      As long as your line is stable you will stay with 16Mb+. I would think you will get over the 1Mb for upload.

      Well activated today, went fine!

      I am getting 4095 down, and 605 up, it has only been on 8 hours though, so let's see what tomorrow brings.

      Speedtest.net gave me a 3.56mb reading, with a 105ms ping.

      Re: Activated now then please post info here

      Well, went live today with my Sky line + Bb, previously on Upto 8 meg and had the full 8128.

      Previous stats
      Connection speed 8128 448
      Line attenuation 18.0db 8.0db
      Noise margin 9.5db 24.0db

      First day of Sky LLU
      Connection speed 4095 605
      Line attenuation 20.5db 12.2db
      Noise margin 15.4db 18.6db

      758m from exchange, straight line distance according to Sam.

      Only had 5 mins downtime, router arrived as expected, activated on the morning of due date, line training not started yet.

      Re: Activated now then please post info here

      OK so my Day 2 stats:

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 14336 kbps 945 kbps
      Line Attenuation 21.0db 11.2db
      Noise Margin 7.4db 16.0db

      I am about 750m away from the exchange.

      Speedtest.net shows a d/l of 12.6mb/s, u/l of 0.77mb/s, ping of 114.

      So the ping is slightly higher than Orange who we've just left, but the download is already twice the fastest Orange could offer.

      Given my close proximity to the exchange, I am hoping we can go a bit faster over the next few days.

      just activated right now - we noticed as the phone call my wife was on got very poor, then the line dropped.
      I guess 10 days of fun as training goes on, already 2mbs slower than my previous ISP, but i know that will improve over time.

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 4095 kbps 605 kbps
      Line Attenuation 38.0db 22.0db
      Noise Margin 7.6db 16.0db

      line length estimated 1.2 miles by road.

      @tonyhague

      Noise Margin 7.6db 16.0db
      This indicates that you have noise problems on the line and will not get much more. Plug into your Test socket and take the stats from there.

      @Alflavor
      Noise Margin 7.4db 16.0db
      Same as above.

      Just had to ring Sky for a billing enquiry, and thought, well might as well speak to tech support as well. I am seriously impressed, billing enquiry sorted in minutes, line speed up to just over 16mb while I was on the phone to them reconfiguring it

      Well done Sky!!!!!

      Down = 16376 up = 767
      Noise margin 7.1 18.6
