      think im capped can i get more ????

      hi all new member here .....

      iv just finnished a ten day line test. ( even tho iv had sky max for the last 5 years ). what i need to no is, have i been capped and if so. what should i be getting. cos i feel it should be at least 10mb +
      before this test i had a solid 8096kbps for years. also on my fav gaming server cod4 i was getting a ping of 45 - 50 but now its gone up to 75 - high 80s why ?

      any one help pls, heres my stats

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 7616 kbps 796 kbps
      Line Attenuation 36.0 db 21.3 db
      Noise Margin 15.2 db 11.5 db

      and theres no dif when using test socket....

      thanks paul

      You have been capped yes. Your looking at another 3-4mb if you get them to remove the cap, as for your ping when you phone them up get them to reduce your max delays to 8 for gaming.

      Have you tried the test socket to see if there is any change in the stats from there.
