      Following on from my earlier post regarding my 30% speed drop since DLM here are my Router stats as per Isitme's request.
      BEFORE DLM
      Connection Down 2912 Up 416
      Attenuation Down 63.0 Up 31.5
      Noise Margin Down 7.1 Up 14.0

      NOW {After 5 days of DLM }
      Connection Down 2047 Up 493
      Attenuation Down 64.0 Up 39.3
      Noise Margin Down 7.3 Up 11.5

      Just to confirm my previous comments I have had Sky BB for over 2 and a half years and have had NO problems at all with my connection/service. Whilst I appreciate that "speed" is not everything I do believe that it becomes more relevant when a 3 kbps connection becomes a 2 kbps connection. My Sky router is a cabled connection, direct to a BT adsl v10 Faceplate { Hope that helps} Any help/ advice would be greatly appreciated. Many Thanks.
      I was under the impression that DLM was done on an "exchange" basis. Im on the same exchange as Skycarp and according to MySky Broadband services, DLM hasnt kicked in on my line yet. How do Sky go about sorting out when customers go on DLM? Im easily confused so be gentle
      I too am quite some distance from the exchange:
      Down:atten 60db/sync 3448Kb/7.1snr,
      Up:atten 31.5db/sync 768kb/9snr.
      So if anything, if I get moved to ADSL2+, can I expect a drop as well?

      Hi Hi Ping
      I thought that DLM was done on a Exchange by Exchange basis as well. My Broadband service status in My Sky is now showing as finished { confirms to me that Sky Tier 2 did actually "stop" it.} Hope that you do not get the same drops as me when / if your line commences DLM ...................BUT based on my experiences I would suggest that you "keep your fingers crossed " !! Once I got through to Tier 2 I must admit the guy I got was very helpful and spent about 30 mins "sorting" it out for me, including a line test etc etc. Good Luck !!!!!

      its good to see sk/easynet are finally moving to adsl2+ which the likes of o2/bethere have used for over a year now. hopefulyli may get some increase in speed from adsl2+. do sky send an email when DLM is due to start or not as im currently using dmt to push my connection up to 3mb


      and yes it is quite possible to get full speed on a line, my partner is on be* and she gets 24576kbps down and 2560kbps up and she only just over the road from the exchange. (thats 24mb down/2.5mb up for the curious - be pro)

      Hi Skycarp,
      Thanks for that m8y, I will keep my fingers crossed, at our current sync rate we need all the bandwidth we can get. My sync rate, give or take 200k or so has remained the same for 2yrs, so I will be rather dischuffed if my sync drops too far.

      Yes, they do send an email.

      I received mine on a Friday and DLM started the following Thursday.

      its good to see sk/easynet are finally moving to adsl2+ which the likes of o2/bethere have used for over a year now.

      Sky have used ADSL2+ since the very beginning, several years ago. They are now trying it on longer lines and on the Everyday connections, which now are 'Up to 10Mb', from the previous' Up to8 Mb', which did not require it. Unfortunately they are discovering that some long lines will not support it and it actually reduces the speed, as Discovered by Skycarp and many others.

      i think you'll find sky used ADSL2 previously as otherwise they would of supported ADSL2+ and upto 24mb all along i would imagine (faster speeds = more possible customers=more money) whereas ADSL2 is maxxed out at 16mb

      Re: Sky Broadband Changes - 22nd June

      Having gone live with Sky BB in August 2006, I can assure you they have only ever used G.DMT and ADSL2+. Very occasionally someone would end up on ADSL2 but that was either due to miconfiguration or the router reacting to a line issue.

      . . . and ADSL2 only supports a maximum of 12meg.

      Maybe you would like to have a look at this thread, in particular at the Mode shown in the stats, which dates back to 2007, there could be even earlier examples.

      SNR significance

      Sky capped the speed to 8Mb or 16Mb, depending on the package, as at they time they felt it was fast enough for the majority. They have recently raised this cap, to 10MB and 20Mb maybe to compete with other ISPs, but some think it was to cover up the savage cut they made to Mid users allowance.
