ive been with sky for 6 months now (there unlimited package) and never thought i had a problem until our next door neibour also got sky bb installed, he says hes getting 6 mb when im only getting 4mb MAX now considering we are both in new build houses on the same bt pole AND connected to the same roadside box surely we would be much closer on speed so im a little worryied.
Anyways ive done the standard things like moveing my router away from other electrical stuff, got a shielded cable and routed it away from electrical cables, new filters, reboots, test socket sync's, ect and to be honist theve made next to no differance altho i did get a 100k uplink boost.
my stats are.......
System Up Time: 294:02:46
Port Status TxPkts RxPkts Collisions Tx B/s Rx B/s Up Time
WAN PPPoA 4574980 8696055 0 489 2457 242:44:09
LAN 9681856 5243193 0 105 621 294:02:46
WLAN 99971 22435 0 291 9 53:57:02
ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
Connection Speed 4095 kbps 542 kbps
Line Attenuation 52.5db 32.9db
Noise Margin 4.5db 10.0db
these are from the test socket of a old style bt faceplate as they couldnt fit a NTE5a socket (apparantly it wouldnt fit into the plate that the bulder supplyed), only the router was connected at the time via a brand new filter, a corded phone reports only a very faint hissing on the quite line test (very faint) under normal use i use digital cordless phone but the base station and router are a good 1 meter appart. there are no extentions off the master at all and the router/phone both run off the master.
every speed test i do says im getting 3.1 to 3.5 max, anyone got any idea if these stats look good? i admit im a good 3 to 4 miles or so by road to our exchange so i wasnt expecting much but if my next door neibour is getting 6.............

I would pity you, if you were not an infidel.
