      Improved speed!!

      I'm have recently joined sky connect, (8 days before this post) At first my dsl connection to the exchange was circa 3100kbps which i thought wasnt the best as im about 2.5km from the exchange,

      So i went and investigated my wiring and seamed ok at first...... then i found this!!!



      This load of horse porn was actually on the bt side of my line in the loft,

      After pondering about it for 1 min, i decided to sort it out myself, so,, re-routed cable straight back to master point (it was long enough anyway) thus removing hidious joints,

      After doing this my snr has almost halfed!! and connection to exchange has gone up to 6122kbps..

      more like wot i was expecting!

      So just a note that it may not just be crap wiring of your phone extentions, but what is supplying them!!!


      on a bad side, my actual download speed has fallen, but hoping it is jus settling down!!?

      Connect does have a 10 Day Training period where the speeds "float" about and then should settle down after.
