      Have you tried rebooting the Sky Router? (Not the OR Modem)

      And retrying the test?

      Try using a download manager. I use DAP+ and instead of using a single stream, it will use up to 5 streams to download the file.

      Download Accelerator Plus (DAP) - Free Download Manager & Video Downloader

      This should max out your connection a lot more easily.

      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

      Re: new connection help

      I had mine installed on friday, at first router synced at 39999down 2000 up, speedtests gave me 38mb down 1.85 up. so rang sky, they said there is a problem at the cabnet, as i should be on 40/10 not 40/2, waiting for openreach to go sort it out, but also noticed while downloading the link provided in the thread, i too only get 1.8-2.1mb download speeds. yet get 33mb download speed from speedtest.
      also i had to switch off the modem on saturday , and now router only synced at 35000/2000.
      I noticed from TBB monitor that at 6am sunday morning my pings changed from 5ms to 13ms. also the TBB monitor is showing alot less stable connection than i was expecting, coming from virgin media to sky.


      first graph shows something change at 6am, then when i had to reboot the modem at 4.30



      graph as it is now

      I think with Fibre lines DLM starts at the maximum speed it can and works down, unlike ADSL which does the opposite.
