      How long have you been connected?

      Has it been faster than that before?

      Is it the same stats in the test socket?
      yes same speed with the master socket no difference at all
      would have to ask what he done to internal wiring not my speciality

      I have to agree with NR, you will be lucky to see 7Mb down but your upload may go up a bit. It has nothing to do with Sky, your attenuation is high due to the length/condition of your line, short of getting BT to lay a new line taking a more direct route to the exchange, there is not much you can do. There are a lot going to be disappointed with BT's 21CN network, all they are doing is putting equipment very similar to Sky's into their exchanges. Until the local loop is replaced by fibre to the cabinet there will be very little improvement.

      I'm on mid at the minute and my max delays are also set to 8 (apparently) my ping is fairly good,if I upgrade to max will this change my max delay and make my ping worse(I think i have read this or something similar somewhere on this site before,any help gratefully received.

      It depends on what parameters Sky's DLM looks at, but as delay and interleaving depth do affect line stablity, I would guess that yes an upgrade to max and running DLM may increase your pings. We will all find out soon enough anyway.

      Just logged into 'mysky' after reading this and see that broadband service details are currently not available!

      I am still currently on the 16mb service.


      Hmmm.
