      Will i get faster speeds?

      Hi im a complete noob but have learned a little reading these forums. I got 20mb broadband activated on wednesday 19th (3 days ago) and the first 24hrs i was only getting 465kb/s download speeds but yesterday morning it has increased alot. I checked mysky and they started testing my line yesterday, i was just wanting someones opinion on what speeds i would roughly get after this dlm process. Thanks for any comments in advance

      My stats as of now are

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 15827 kbps 1110 kbps
      Line Attenuation 25.0 db 13.1 db
      Noise Margin 7.1 db 8.6 db

      Btw i'm not complaining about the speed i have now

      Have you tried using a wire to connect to the router, your sync speed shows you are connected at 15+mb but youe download speed shows just over 10mb, even with overheads you should be getting a couple more mb.

      In which case, try using the speedtester on this site and see if it is any better, Speedtest.net isnt the most reliable out there.

      Use sky user's speedtester or mybroadbandspeed.co.uk for a more accurate download speed reading
