      Re: Sky Fibre connection

      Double check with the BTO engineer for us about having the modem away from the master socket if theres no power source, does the data extention kit run between the master socket and the modem and if so will they only run it along skirting and round door frames or are they willing/able to drill holes thru walls to run the cable from the hall thru into another room ?

      thats if he hasent already gone ofcause

      Re: Sky Fibre connection

      At last, a decent connection speed. You can drop that rather slow speedtest from Virgin now

      The good thing is it is the HG612, so it is possible all those hacks will work too, allowing people to see more detailed connection stats, for example.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB
      Speedtest: 17.15MB/s 0.97Mb/s Ping 31 ms
