      My exchange has gone live with 21CN WBC!

      My exchange went live with 21CN WBC on the 21/3/09. My Exchange

      Will this improve my connection speed?

      My current stats are

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 4039 kbps 576 kbps
      Line Attenuation 53.5 db 30.7 db
      Noise Margin 7.4 db 8.5 db

      It's been up at that speed for 138 hours. Before that it had been around 3800 kbps for about a month. (I turned the wrong socket off)

      Short answer is no

      This is the same equipment that you are currently using with Sky so no improvement, it is just BT catching up.

      Your line attenuation is very high (which means a long line length from the exchange to your house) so when BT start to announce they can do "up to" 24 meg in your area you won't be able to as your phone line can only support 4 anyways.
      I'm a PC, and Windows 7 Backup saved my sanity when BitDefender imploded !!!
