      Someone please help me, my download speed is about 100kbps !!

      Any help is will be much appreciated, i hear the noise margin should be around 7db, and the higher it is the slower your speed, isit because my noise margin is 17.4 my connection is so slow.

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 128 kbps 416 kbps
      Line Attenuation 51.0 db 31.0 db
      Noise Margin 17.4 db 14.0 db

      i am paying for an 8MB connection, never had anywhere near it, i do understand i wont get that much as i live far away from the exchange but still... 100kbps is terrible, the fastest i've seen my connection is around 3MB

      I think whenever I've seen the 128kbps before it is because there is a problem with the connection at your exchange which Sky will need to get BT Openreach to sort out for you.

      Have a look at this thread Need Serious Help... Mega Slow Connection!

      You need to speak to Sky CST and let them go through some checks, something is wrong and it maybe an exchange problem.
