@loverboi while you may live a few hundred meters from the cabinet it doesnt follow the line uses the most direct route and your line looks to be longer 0.3 miles. 

Next point the Sky test show the speed to hub synchronises at but when testing on a device you lose roughly 8% of that bandwidth to network overheads to allow the system to route the data correctly. So a 40Mb/s sync will deliver up to  37Mb/s on a speed test as long as the connection from the hub to the device is faster.

 

Your line will have a handback (the speed Openreach release Sky from contract) of around 37.5 Mb/s which means Sky will have ordered a 40Mb/s down 10Mb/s up connection which your stats show has happened. We have raised this in the past with Sky where other customer's lines looked to easily deliver higher speeds than 40Mb/s without success.

@loverboi 

Looks like you are on the 40/10 package so those stats look correct.

@loverboi it looks like your service is limited to 40Mb/s which it is delivering. The downstream noise margin is 11dB which indicates the line could support higher speeds were you on the 80/20 tier as opposed to the 40/10 tier you are on currently. Where a line has a guaranteed minimum speed below 40Mb/s Sky tend to provision on 40/10 there is no real cost saving.

 

A high noise margin is a good thing as it makes the connection more resiliant but it comes at the cost of speed.

Re: line/noise margin

@Chrisee @jamesn123 Hi thanks for the quick reply πŸ™‚ πŸ˜„

i had openreach replace my line as i was getting faults and after he installed the line he tested the line and was getting 60 down and 11 up but he said as im 0.3 miles from the cabinet he said i will only get 40 down  and 11 up but when i use fast.com and sky's own checker im only getting the 37.5 but my guarantee is 36.9 but im fftc with fibre from the exchange to the cabinet and then copper to the home but when i went to the router settings im getting 40 but 8 up and i called sky and they blantly said no your line can only handle about 37.5 but i told them what im getting on the router page but they werent having it but i told them openreach man said that he can see 60 down and 11 up on his test but they sad no that cant be right? 😞 but sjy said he must be wrong the openreach man as they said they see a 40/10 stats not what he saw heres some pics to help you you all/everyone have a great day ahead πŸ™‚ πŸ˜„
