      BT/Sky both gave me ~52Mb estimates.

      Unlocking the BTO Modem revealed max attainable rate of 72Mb

      71176 sync rate speaks for itself. I think the conservative estimates are to cover crosstalk.

      Called SKY yesterday for PRO upgrade but was informed that my cabinet and/or exchange may not be ready for the upgrade. SKY are calling me back today to update me.

      Do not forget tho, as cabinets fill some connections will experience crosstalk and speeds may drop! If you have 40/2 and may only see slight increases in speed it may be worth waiting to see if and when sky move to a 40/10 connection before accepting a 12 month contract at 30

      No real way of knowing how fast cabinets fill up. Depending on area, Could be a slow process, so people who have been quoted slow speeds for fibre pro could be happy for a while yet. If you got a good year out of it, most people I think would be happy. Just a case of what happens when the speed you get isn't worth it any more. By then I would imagine the price to come down enough to keep you on fibre pro.

      If your estimate was 59 - i'm sure you'll be towards 80
