      Awesome, hopefully your one should speed up, but if there is no speed difference, that;s when you should start calling sky.

      Nice one, but this isn't quite the end of the DLM, there is more to come, tomorrow, you COULD have up to 18,000 kbps since your Line Attenuation is pretty low, the lower, the better.

      lucky sod. I've had my service 3 day, runs at 1.8mb and still no DLM in sight. Been told to wait upto 10 days before i can complain.
      Not the best of starts with a new provider!!!

      Yeah this is only day 3- Sky estimated 17.5 which will do for me,was getting 20-22 on previous ISP, but quite happy so far, another week to see how it all settles down

      Hello Brian
      Actually when checking MySky it still says "Your Connection Details

      Check back here for updates.

      Line testing is not currently in progress.

      We continually look at ways to improve the quality of your broadband connection."

      But obviously it must be from the increase yesterday

      Hello Brian
      I wasn't that lucky Gary, after the 10 day period was over, the speed was unacceptable and much slower than planned, I did happen to call sky and told them to put it on the gamers profile and they did in such a short space of time.

      Here is what my stats are now.

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 16122 kbps 1146 kbps
      Line Attenuation 23.0 db 11.7 db
      Noise Margin 7.2 db 8.6 db

      ** Since you haven't waited for that long, the chances are that it MIGHT eventually speed up to the appropriate speed.

      Just DON'T touch or do anything with the router until the 10 day period is over, it will only cause more problems.
