      Don't worry about it for the moment. You're on Connect and this has a 10 day "training" period. During this time, speeds can vary considerably.

      Oh thanks Saturday, well hopefully this time next week then I'll have a decent connection!

      What about my Line Attenuation and Noise Margin etc. do these seem pretty normal?

      Thanks for the quick response by the way!

      Attenuation is strongly related to line length, so it is what it is. Your noise margin is a little high and will probably settle down to around 7db over the coming days and you'll get a slightly higher sync as a result.

      Download/upload speeds should improve dramatically, again over the coming days, though you should be aware that Connect is a highly contended service (compared to Sky's LLU products) and your speed will vary depending on the time of day and what other users on the same exchange equipment are doing. It also has traffic shaping so P2P can be slow.

      It would help greatly

      Connection Speed - Downstream 15323 kbps - Upstream 766 kbps
      Line Attenuation - Downstream 25.5 db - Upstream 13.0 db
      Noise Margin - Downstream 16.3 db - Upstream 15.4 db

      I just used my other computer to see what speed I get, and it reports that I get 13MB on the other computer (Done the Speedtest)

      How is it that one computer says I get 9MB and the other says 13MB

      What about these result! Sky have the cheek to charge me for this! Had very intermittent connection (sounds familiar!) so after many weeks of fiddling they "capped" me at 800K. They tell me the lines in my area will not support higher speeds. I'm fed up but cannot afford the charges of other ISP's.
