      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 13200 kbps 1176 kbps
      Line Attenuation 32.0 db 16.3 db
      Noise Margin 7.1 db 7.9 db

      I get the same from my other socket in the house as I run the W/G & G/W unfilterd wires from the master filter plate to my other socket
      I have interleaving on the line, do not know why as I have just left Orange, after 18 months on LLU in same exchange but on Fast track with no problems....

      I would appreciate any coments on my Line stats please
      Its the only way to get a more decent upstream speed and the download speed is also looking good.
      I thought sky don't use fastpath.

      Sky are reputed not to use Fastpath, but several have posted stats showing it enabled. An interleaved connection is more stable and can actually be faster than one on Fastpath as errors are corrected more efficiently. You are syncing at just about the right speed for your connection with an average line. Some may sync higher with very good lines, but they are much in the minority.

      If you are a gamer then you can ask for your delay to be reduced, this will improve your gaming experience. If you are not a gamer, don't bother as it can destabilise your line and lead to a speed reduction.
