new to sky are my stats good


[link to this post]
 
Hi, I am fairly new to sky, been on a month or so.
My stats are;
Connection Speed 19005 kbps 1145 kbps
Line Attenuation 20.0 dB 11.8 dB
Noise Margin 6.3 dB 9.9 dB

I get a reliable 16.2mb down and 1.02 up

Samknows says I am 847 metres from the exchange.
Are these stats good?

Fibre has just arrived here and thought I might consider it.
I have located my cabinet and it is 260 metres away.
If my stats are good, what would I expect from fibre?

The stats have no resemblance to fibre unfortunately. The best guess is to go off the estimates you are given when checking around for fibre.

You can have the worlds worst stats but get the fastest fibre speeds. It's totally different.

Stats are pretty decent though, do you need faster?

Your current speed is fine for the attenuation and noise margin, SKY DLM may see it fit to lower noise to 3db or increase in time As for Fibre to the Cabinet -
