      Something's Changed : 20Mbit :-))))))))

      Just logged into the router, as I'd noticed it'd gone into DLM for a 2nd time about a week ago. First time was back in March when we first went live.

      I downloaded a 700MB Linux ISO on Saturday, and thought it was quick (touch wood).

      So the question is, what's changed? Why?

      Downstream / Line Attenuation / Noise Margin
      19697 kbps / 17 db / 9 db

      Upstream / Line Attenuation / Noise Margin
      864 kbps / 7 db / 8 db

      I think it is obvious, you are one of the first to report Sky's new faster speed for Max users.
