How do my Sky stats look? (SR102 black hub)


[link to this post]
 
Hello all. I was with BT Infininty as per my signature but after getting frustrated have left and moved to Sky. I never got my stats with the BT Modem as didn't really fancy hacking it, but the Sky hub allows you some access.

I never got to the bottom of the seemingly poor upload and download speeds with BT and wondered if the stats below would shed some light on that. Are the noise margins average/typical for example. With that sort of noise what are the maximum speeds I could expect to achieve? I'm a bit green with all this so any assistance is greatly received.

BT Infinity 2 - Predicted speed 54.7Mbps down/15.7Mbps up. Actual speed 42Mbps down/4.5Mbps up...crazy Left BT as they were poor...
Now with Sky - 38Mbps down, 9.5Mbps up

That is the full connection speed for a 40/10 FTTC connection, so speed tests in the 34 to 36 Meg down and 8 to 9 Meg up should be the norm outside of peak times.

Mr Saffron - thanks for the response - much appreciated. How do the line attenuation/noise figures look? I'm not sure of the length of my line but wondered, based on the noise/line attenuation figures (if that's possible) where I could get to if I was to go back to an 80/20 package? Thanks again.

The connection speeds would be the same as you had with Infinity 2 since the FTTC side of things would be the same.
