      Dlm had not started yet, so I think I was lucky there

      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.
      ah...as i had 6db noise before the migration, and i only have 1 socket in the house, and I haven't changed line cable to router or microfilter I do hope you're wrong..especially as this current connection is currently lower than the adsl one i was on

      Sky work with a 7db default noise margin. I could be wrong as DLM can do some good work on some lines, but from experience, I think your margin is too low. For comparison, this is mine at the moment. I could get a bit more, but prefer a stable connection.
      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed. 9213 kbps 1022 kbps
      Line Attenuation..... 38 db......... 20 db
      Noise Margin...........11 db......... 8 db

      Then they DEFINITELY shouldn't have reconfigured the line - DLM is meant to be run on ALL lines before any manual configuration can be done

      I'm hoping the 8516 Kbps in this log is an indication things are likely to improve, but honestly not too worried yet, 10 days to go.
      If worst comes to the worst, I'm still going to have fairly fast internet connection with unlimited usage and faster upload.
      Code:
      ADSL Stats
      ==========
      
      xdslctl: ADSL driver and PHY status
      Status: Showtime
      Retrain Reason:	0
      Max:	Upstream rate = 945 Kbps, Downstream rate = 8516 Kbps
      Path:	0, Upstream rate = 605 Kbps, Downstream rate = 4095 Kbps
      
      Link Power State:	L0

      That's about as good as it'll get, you're on the default noise margin

      Not really, it means your speed will not improve any more. Have you tried the Test socket?
