      keep an eye on that noise margin any lower and your going to possibly have issues.

      I live a good 1km+ away *as the crow flies* and get the stats shown below, i'm guessing they're decent for the distance away from the excange?

      Re: Well done Sky !!!!! I'm Connected at 16MB

      Im 50FT away from my exchange and Im synched at 15323kbps as well.

      Is there anyway I can get Sky to increase the down speeds being that Im so close to the exchange?

      No, a 15323 sync is skys 16mbs service, 95% of people with a good line sync at 15323 as its the ceiling that sky use. Some people however get 16000+ syncs but these are just the ones that slipped through the net.

      So asking for more speed when you sync at 15323 could just cause them to think you have a speed problem and cap your speed.
