Apparently I've been moved onto a 3dB profile!


[link to this post]
 
I have seen others mention that the Sky DLM will put you on this if your line is deemed capable.

I managed to catch this from the event log earlier

xDSL linestate up (ITU-T G.992.5; downstream: 16077 kbit/s, upstream: 1304 kbit/s; output Power Down: 18.6 dBm, Up: 12.1 dBm; line Attenuation Down: 32.5 dB, Up: 19.4 dB; snr Margin Down: 3.1 dB, Up: 3.0 dB)


The upstream is notable in the increase from 1117kb/s (from memory) to 1304kb/s.

For clarity, I am an ex O2 user using a WB5 and never used Annex M.

Nice. My own line can't handle less than 6 dB downstream, but I would certainly like to have 6 dB upstream rather than the 9 dB I have always had on Sky.

I just got a 3dB downstream profile with fastpath after a live chat. smile
Ian do you have a sky phone line as your upstream is much better than my 1115kb/s...

No, it's a Post Office line. (should have mentioned that in the OP!)

In reply to a post by IanBB:

That's certainly relevant because the kit used in the two instances is different. smile

It was a BT line when Sky took over the broadband (March) and about a month later transferred to The Post Office.

I can't recall any downtime when the transfer took place and at that time my upload speed was stuck at 1117Kbs.

Digging deeper line testing was started on my line on 3rd June.

Well, I've just got the 3 dB treatment today too, resulting in "record" speeds. Downstream has jumped from 18.7 meg to 19.7 meg, and upstream has hit 1.3 meg for the very first time. And all that on a 29 dB downstream attenuation.

Very happy that Sky have finally managed to configure 1.3 meg upstream on my connection.

wow

i take these are sync speeds and not throughput?

even so on 25db i struggled to get 17000 on 3db with clean wiring inside my house anyways

but my upload was always 1425 (on every isp) kind of strange.
