      It was a landline number he had, just not mine, apparently. Sky have my mobile number, but hadn't given it to him.

      All up & running now, syncs at 40, getting speed test results in the low 30s or low 20s, depending which test server I use. Hell of an improvement over the old 2. Engineer didn't have the wee line stats gadget, so don't know what max attainable is - may have to hack the Openreach box...

      What does the Sky router report your sync speeds as?

      That's the one. Your throughput speed (reported download) should be higher considering your sync speed, around 35-37Mb rather than the ~29Mb you have posted. What speedtester are you using? Try a few servers on Speedtest.net and the speed tester available on this site.

      Sorted out my problem with picking up the router from the post office, Mum has the day off too now so she can pick it up while I wait in for the BTO engineer
