      Re: upload speed

      With your current Line Attenuation you appear to be getting the best from your connection. The tool on this site gives a predicted connection of 10 to 12Mb and you are at the top end of this. The noise margin for the downstream is 7dB, which is Sky's target.

      I would be inclined to check your connections locally to ensure that you are making the most of everything else. For example, do you have an NTE5 master socket? If this is the case, then a filtered faceplate would be a good idea, particularly if you also have any extensions.

      You can prove whether or not a filtered faceplate would be beneficial by using the Test Socket behind the faceplate on the NTE5 socket.

      Also if you are using a telephone extension lead, try connecting directly to the master socket with the short grey ADSL lead supplied by Sky.

      For some more tips, see this page: ::. Kitz - Improve your adsl connection speed .::

      When you have gone through all of those, repost your stats so we can see if there has been any improvement. We are not looking at just the connection speed, but also the other figures which I mentioned (noise margin & line attenuation) on both the upstream & downstream connection.

      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: upload speed

      You look to be on an easynet dslam with that upstream

      try opening a command prompt


      if hop 2 is *
      if you replaced your router with a conexant chipset you would get more

      mine went from 984 to 1216 by matching the dslam chipset to the modem

      this isnt of interest to most people
      but if money is no object
      im just pointing the option out
