      Ah, my apologies.

      Speed amazing, 4.5MB/s seems to be the actual throughput. Already have clearance for 80Mbit, so as soon as Sky offer the upgrade I'll be ordering.

      Going to get all the info together about the BT Modem then I'll give it a bash.

      @gorebush. that looks superb do you have any idea how far you are from your cab, and as the cab fills up will you max atainable drop due to crosstalk, etc

      will know all of this in the next 3 hour myself, but the suspense is killing me

      Might be a silly question but whats the risk that the BTO engineers will cancel installations due to the bad weather conditions?

      The heavy rain has been absolutely terrible here in Essex and is going to be the same tomorrow and throughout the weekend. I hope this doesn't affect my installation.

      Just stand over him with a brolly. Seriously though. I've been thinking the same thing. I'm sure it will be fine.

      Did the BTO engineer mention what your max attainable rate was?
