      I noticed my BB has increased in speed recently too. It's currently gone up to:
      Your line has been upgraded to Unlimited. Sky seem to have started early on the upgrades rather than wait till after the 1st Sept, when they would no doubt be inundated by demands for speed increases. Mine has also been upgraded, no increase in download as I expected, but a good increase in upload.

      The router stats are:

      Connection Speed: 17023
      Line Attenuation: 21.5 db
      Noise Margin: 7.2 db

      Up:
      Connection Speed: 1000
      Line Attenuation: 9.8 db
      Noise Margin: 8.0 db

      But then I do live within walking distance of the exchange.

      Strangely my old Sky Netgear DG834GT used to have a down attenuation of only 20.5 with exactly the same setup. Hmm...

      Re: Sky Launches New Up To 20Mb Broadband Product

      I think I am now on unlimited.
      The SKY package says that - the broadband usage tool says I'll soon be on unlimited.
      Router stats:

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 10237 kbps 910 kbps
      Line Attenuation 26.5 db 14.9 db
      Noise Margin 7.5 db 6.5 db

      Does any of this indicate DLM I wonder?

      The speed tester show huge variations from:

      thinkbroadband :: UK Broadband Speed Test

      which gives about 8.5 download - to:

      Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test

      which gives over 10mbps - others are showing even faster - up to 22 on one.

      I know the route to the test site varies, but I thought there might be more consistency.

      Cheers

      With your sync speed you should get 8.5- 9.2, anything higher than that is a lie
      Speedtest.net is rubbish.

      Your sync speed is low for your attenuation, you should be getting 15-16Mb, maybe even more if your external line is good. If you want to try to improve it, start a new thread in the Help section.

      Many thanks - I'll do that later - but I am wondering if DLM might be in operation?

      If you have just upgraded it may be running, but it does not look like it will make much difference.

      In my account it says unlimited will be with you very soon, just noticed my down speed gone from 4026 kbps to 3916 kbps and upload from 606 kbps to 796 kbps.

      You have been moved to the Unlimited settings. DLM may be running on your line. Post your stats.
