      You stats show you are capped and they are good for your attenuation. I would imagine you will get 10-12mb if you ring Sky and get them to uncap you.

      Ring them and tell them you have improved your wiring and would like the cap removing from your line, they will need to pass you through to CST to do this but they should be able to do it whislt you are waiting on the line.
