      Is this the best I'll get?

      These are my stats taken from the connection details on MySky:

      Line connection testing completed on 13/04/2009

      Download Speed
      Your connection has been set to a download speed of up to
      16.0Mb (16384Kb)

      Upload Speed
      Your connection has been set to an upload speed of up to
      0.8Mb (768Kb)

      I rang them up as I wasn't getting anywhere near 16.0MB and they changed it to the following:

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 14495 kbps 766 kbps
      Line Attenuation 34.5 db 15.9 db
      Noise Margin 8.4 db 14.0 db

      This is what I'm getting now:


      Results from speed.io - Internet DSL Speedtest
      (Copied on 2009-07-09 09:56:41)
      Download: 12403 Kbit/s
      Upload : 735 kbit/s
      Connects : 1342 conn/min
      Ping: 44 ms

      Can this be improved? I'm on Sky unlimited, What am I likely to get when my speed is increased to the new 20.0MB.

      Many thanks for any advice you can give.

      Dave

      the 20Mbps is irrelevent, you're getting about as good as you'll get right now...you should get more on the upstream though...
