      ADSL2+ Speed Test

      We estimate your line is capable of between 16mb to 24mb broadband on an ADSL2+ service. This ADSL2 Line Speed Calculator is a best guess only, as to the broadband speed that maybe possible on your telephone line. The checker provides results of up to 24mb with the data that is made available to us. This is purely for indication only and should not be classed as the Line Speed that you would receive on any ADSL or LLU product from another ISP.

      Suggests possible room for improvement to me, but others will have a better opinion.

      I have the same line attenuation as yours. I also live within 650m of the exchange (straight line) so i'm pretty close.

      Re: DLM Completed - Should I have better speeds

      If you are plugged into the Test socket using only the ADSL cable supplied by Sky, then it does not look like you will get much more. Can you check your voice line for noise? Plug a corded phone into the Test socket on its own and dial one digit. You should hear nothing but a very slight hiss. Any crackles or pops it should be reported to your phone provider. If there is noise it indicates a fault which can reduce your broadband speed.
