      Snr

      You have high attenuation so in turn your signal loss seems to be very high - (SNR).

      Its possible you can talk to Sky's technical team and get your line adjusted to deal with your poor SNR and high Attenuation this would improve throughput making your connection feel a bit faster.

      You also might want to check your line length using a web site such as www.samknows.com if you have a shorter line than 2.5 - 3 km you would most likley find that the signal degradation is happening within your house and should try from your test socket to ascertain if greater SNR is seen from the test socket. In that case your internal wiring may be to blame.

      If your downsteam SNR is as low as 4.5 Db you may want to ask Sky to cap your line speed further.

      Based on the attenuation you entered, we estimate that your line can support around 2.0 - 4.0 Mbps on ADSL2+ aka MAX!

      Also you seem to have the 416kbps UPLOAD issue?
