      Small problem is that you need an attenuation of <20db to get anywhere near this speed. Which is probably why they don't.

      Re: HAVE A LOOK 24mb Broadband

      Im getting the maximum speeds with Sky and with a speed test with BE my speeds will go to 20.5Mbps.

      Problem is does it warrent the extra 12.00 a month?

      Out of interest I just did another speed test and its now showing as 16.4Mbps.

      Must be the time of day.
