      Activated and happy

      Activated a couple of days ago (30th) . . .speed now steadily increasing - current stats look like this and hoping to go up to around 16meg. . .is that likely

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 9215 kbps 945 kbps
      Line Attenuation 2.5 dB 3.6 dB
      Noise Margin 15.9 dB 15.0 dB

      Hoping over 14meg as that is what we were getting on talktalk. . connection seems stable so far

      With those figures, I would be disappointed if you didn't get the full 20mb connection speed, provided that your line is all right and you aren't using your router on an extension.

      If you do have any telephone extensions, then I would definitely suggest that you consider a filtered faceplate too.

      Hi,

      Thanks again for the advice. . .fitted a filtered faceplate a while back after connection problems - so fingers crossed for near 20mb. . .

      Helps that we live across the road from the exchange

      I will post back after the settling in period. . .

      All the best

      Antony

      Nice one.

      Someone else a couple of months ago, who also lives quite close to his exchange, managed to get 22Mb, so sit back, leave your router on 24/7 and hopefully DLM will be kind to you too.
