If you run a speed test using this websit the 'Down HTTPx6' could well be up to 38Mbps during a quiet time such as after midnight.

I would 'estimate' in best circumstances around 55-60mbps down, but not much more upwards... maybe 10.5-11mbps.

So best package out there currently would be BT Infinty 1 upto 52mbps.... unless Sky is offering a 55mb service now.

Sky do the 55/10 but it's a 'hidden' product, you can downgrade to it from the 76 down if your download speed is less than 55. But you cannot order it straight from Sky.

If Sky will let you upgrade to that service then give it a go, however depending on price difference it could be a waste of money and could lead to some displeasure if you want to downgrade service again as Sky are supposed to pay for speed changes

(even on existing fibre based services.)

It's the problem I'm having with Sky trying to upgrade to Fibre Max because the database says my line can't support Fibre Max speeds.

As some will know I've been commenting on my wonderful 11-13 Mbps fibre connection. Anyway after Openreach fixed a single leg disconnect fault the line was showing "excessive crosstalk", the engineers word which turned out to be a split pair which has probably been their t since I moved in last year.

So the engineer switched my line to a "new cable", again his words, and my stats are now:

Connection Speed 39999 kbps 9387 kbps
Line Attenuation 22.0 dB 0.0 dB
Noise Margin 15.4 dB 6.6 dB

I contacted Openreach to see if the database could be updated to reflect the change but they say it's up to date and my line will support a maximum of 42 Mbps.

I can't even switch to a new ISP because the cabinet is full to capacity.
