      Ah, ok. So - with a direct connection between the PC and router and modem, speed test results should be pretty close to sync speed ?

      That was my suspicion as well but with the modem at the opposite end of the house to the router and concrete floors, homeplugs is the only way I can see

      Just run another speedtest.net test and got: ping = 18ms, download = 36.63Mbps, upload = 1.69Mbps which is a lot more impressive.

      A torrent test I did this evening (with only about 35/188 seeders connected) was averaging 1.7/1.8MB down Just about try another test with a torrent with 1000s of seeders. Other torrents with a similar number of seeders (30ish) is getting 2.6/2.7MB down so all good

      Got the follow up call from Sky CS this morning to make sure everything was OK ... and offer a 50 credit for the missed installation.

      Happy days
