      Hello everyone :)

      YO.... just switched to sky max (was on a 1/2 meg 19.99 tariffs for about 5 yr), didn't get the switch over letter, but my old isp went dead (only lost connection twice in 5yr!) rang sky.... told me switch over was today! (mon 9th) had a letter off 'em saying problem with BT and would be a 10 day delay from the switching date (I didn't get that letter)... swapped over router, straight on! couldn't believe it!!!, only problem was the download speed was only just faster than dial up!!!!! & sluggish pages, rang sky, bloke who answered was helpful and knowledgable & really helpful (had a word with tier3 for me), ran me through a few things, ended up not sorting but asked me to plug straight in test socket..... (On a hard wired extention upstairs at the mo'), didn't have time, had to go to work..... though tried everything else on the line unplugged and was upto just under 2 meg plugged everything back in (apart from a second router I used downstairs!... Problem?).... still just under 2 meg (massive leap for me don't forget), maybe summat sky did, maybe 2nd router interfering!.... though they capped the line at 2 meg at the mo'..... more testing 2moro... see if I can get it up a bit more, happy at the mo', 3 times faster and half the price

      Re: Hello everyone :)

      do you mean these...
      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 2048 kbps 768 kbps
      Line Attenuation 15.5 db 24.0 db
      Noise Margin 19.6 db 13.0 db

      though when the connection was bad the line att' was higher & the noise was lower? (connect speed was about 4000ish before cap)
      wireless running now same speed.
