Based on your stats today you were lucky to get 6.3, your current speed is the best you can get from your line at the moment, there is no "spare noise margin" to allow a speed increase.

And is this data from the test socket? Always worth trying to see if it will go faster

Are the stats the same from the test socket, not just the speed? It could be the line is capped at 5Mbps but has additional noise margin in the test socket.

It concerns me that the up times are only around an hour and 20 hours respectively

Sky needs around 72 hours before its happy to increase the speed generally

Turning it off so often & not even giving it over a day is going to screw up your line speed (as you found out)

Plug it in & don't unplug it from now onwards
You need to get that right before sky reset DLM etc

thats because sky asked me to try the test socket and then back to the main socket with the speed droping with each change thats why

http://www.coolwebhome.co.uk/calc/calculator.php estimates based on your actual router data can be grabbed from that link.

You ARE on Sky LLU, which is an ADSL2+ service.

As Sky are saying 5 Meg is the maximum your line will support it is feasible that it is the Sky DLM system that is limiiting you. The Sky DLM tends to favour stability.
