      Happy with my speed - but can I get more?

      Hey all, DLM just finished on my line and it's put me on:
      12.0Mb (12288Kb)
      1.3Mb (1312Kb)

      These are the speeds displayed on the mysky website, so as I said, I'm happy with this, I previously came from a 6mb ISP afterall. Anywho I'm no expert but my line stats seem to be pretty decent, so my question is could I get more? Or am I on the limit for my line already?

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 12285 kbps 921 kbps
      Line Attenuation 35.0 db 17.5 db
      Noise Margin 8.6 db 11.0 db

      Thanks a bunch

      Yeah I tried to reboot my router to see if I could actually connect to that, but it stood at 921. With that said though, even 921 seems to be higher than most people I've seen.

      The weird thing is even when I was on DLM the speeds only changed once, from 4095/510 kbps to what it is now.

      Stability !
      I have the same router as you and same attenuation as you, same speed as you.
      My DLm training finished yesterday but stuck at 8mb. rang CST who put it up to just under 14 MB. However this morning it was down to 11mb. Rang CST again who said it had gone down due to stability issues. They set it at 12288 for stability.
      I am happy at that. So probably the same for you.

      Yeah great stuff if you happen to be across the road from the exchange! The 10% of users that would benefit. The rest of us things will stay pretty much as they are.

      This may not be true of upload speed, which many would like increased. If you are not getting 16mbps at the moment you are unlikely to get an increase in download, but going by Jamm's figures this might not be the case with upload.
