New House / Activated


[link to this post]
 
Just got activated in the new house which is apparently 350 metres away from the exchange, just looked at the line stats and this is what i've got, is it good or bad for that distance away from the exchange and what speed should i expect?.

4095 the standard start speed for Sky DLM system, it should creep up

www.farina1.com/adsl comes in with a 20Meg connection speed

They said it would go quicker, but i cant see how as the noise margin is down to almost 7 dB now, which is the lowest sky will let it go at.

If 7dB is their target then not much more available.

17Meg will do for now I am sure smile Fibre probably in a year or two.

Maybe - but if its 350m from the exchange, then maybe not with no cabinet?

I dont think thats the real length of the line though, i think the line is much longer, i think if it was from my house straight to the exchange the attenuation would be a bit lower than the 17 i have got.

I have done a speedtest and the real world speeds comes in at around 16Mb, i got around 12Mb at the max at the other house, so an improvement so i am happy, the house is a new build as well so maybe if it wasn't i would get slightly better speeds as maybe the line would be closer to the exchange, i think the upload speed i've got at the moment could be higher though, so might give it the 10 days and ask about that again.
