I have rang sky 3 times already since November and each time after going through 24 hr line testing etc,a 2nd line tech support will ring and re-profile my line to 6-10db which makes it stable for weeks on end.
Until about the 6wk mark when DLM decides to mess it up.
The tech lads I've spoken to over the time say my line is great but the DLM on some lines is just to aggressive and sets the upload at 2.5mb resulting in 3db,,when they adjust the line to 1.1mb upload the SNR goes to around 9-10db.
Each time they do a manual profile they freeze the DLM for a week.But maintime they cannot turn it off all together.
So does anyone know if the DLM can be switched off by sky permanently,as it is a real pain to ring them and keep going through the motions of testing-then trying to sell me fibre-then eventually 2nd line tech will ring.
Just to add,DLM has kicked in again on my line that has been connected for about 4-5 weeks.no disconnection no noise on the line nothing.
And my next question is which ISP doesn't use this DLM,,Does plusnet use it?
Sorry for the rant,just really annoying me having to ring sky to do a manual adjustment on the line.
here are my stats,,it disconnected for its testing about 2am last night.
