My Sky router shows this:-


Broadband LinkDownstreamUpstream
Connection Speed (Kbps)307212626
Line Attenuation (dB)DS1:19.8 DS2:56.7 DS3:86.3US0:10.2 US1:46.5 US2:60.9
Noise Margin (dB)DS1:11.7 DS2:11.7 DS3:0.0US0:6.2 US1:6.2 US2:0.0

Yet when I do a Speedtest I get-


PING ms 12
DOWNLOAD Mbps 26.26
UPLOAD Mbps 2.33

could be a number of factors, are you using wireless? a number of devices and potentially walls could cause interfearence with the signal, drivers can also play a part as well.

You are only 10% down on the sync speed, which is not unreasonable. I wouldn't worry about it.

With Sky it's always been like this for me. Other providers if I have 80mbps sync, I get that on speedtests too. With Sky it's always a bit lower, I'm not sure why. Well within expectations though.
