Just set up sky broadband for a friend, ouch!


[link to this post]
 
Info: Filter plugged directly into BT Openreach main faceplate.
Nothing else plugged in except Sky+ HD box (into the same filter)

Stats below:

Broadband Link Downstream Upstream
Connection Speed 158 kbps 309 kbps
Line Attenuation 85.5 dB 37.2 dB
Noise Margin 7.0 dB 7.7 dB

Next step?
Contact Sky and get a BT guy out to the flat?

Has the line had functioning adsl of any sort before?

The speeds are what you would expect for the indicated line length

Made a school boy error when setting it up..serves me right for not pulling the tv out and looking closer, but the bt socket is already filtered with a modem socket and phone socket on it..Looks better now..

Looks much better. Sky limit the downstream and gradually increase it over the 1st week or 2, so should see a healthy increase over time.
