      Dropped to 4.0 db and getting steady connection and good speed increase

      Sky did a 10 day check recently, as they do.

      Before I was getting 16.3mb on a 6.3db with a ping of 26-28

      But sky have dropped me to a 4.1db and I'm getting 19.07mb download, 1.07mb upload and a ping of 20.
      I've always had a very stable line, so nice surprise

      Its why really I do not need to move to Fibre yet as get a great speed/connection at a very low price.
      Just going to add to the sky router beta forum, as I know they will be pleased too.

      The BT broadband availability checker shows my speeds as;

      Code:
      Featured Products   Downstream Line Rate(Mbps) Upstream Line Rate(Mbps) Downstream Range(Mbps) Availability Date
      	                 High 	Low 	           High 	Low 		
      FTTC Range A          80    69.3                 20     19.9                   --                   Available
      FTTC Range B          80    55.9                 20     17.9                   --                   Available
      WBC ADSL 2+            Up to 17                     --                      10 to 19.5              Available
      WBC ADSL 2+ Annex M    Up to 17                  Up to 1.5                  10 to 19.5              Available
      ADSL Max               Up to 7.5                    --                     6.5 to 8                 Available
      My stats from router are;
      Broadband Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 22167 kbps 1164 kbps
      Line Attenuation 20.0 dB 11.7 dB
      Noise Margin 4.1 dB 8.8 dB

      Re: Dropped to 4.0 db and getting steady connection and good speed increase

      Nice results you have there.

      I don't have all the information, but I suspect that Sky's DLM, including the new technologies such as G.INP, are helping more and more Sky customers to beat the BTW estimates.

      It would be nice to compare a neighbour's BTW connection now to your own.

      As and when you decide to upgrade to Fibre, those speeds look promising. Basically with the right set up at home, you should expect the full 80/20 connection speed.

      PlusNet Fibre since Jan 2021
      Previously Sky Fibre & Sky BB since 2010.
