      Max Upload Speeds?

      Hi All,

      I was just wondering does anyone know if 448kbs is the max upload speed on a NON-LLU Exchange ?

      I have noticed on Eclipse webiste the offer 1mb upload..

      Would I be right in thinking that the upload speed affects your in-game ping ?

      448kbps seems to be the maximum on BTW connections...unless they use Max Premium, in which case it's higher (nearer 800kbps i think)...

      The exchange is ASDL Max enabled .. Is that what you mean ? Sorry im a noob !

      Also do you think having a static IP would/could reduce my ping ?

      Yes, ADSL Max is BT

      No a static IP won't do anything.

      Elclipse were using Tiscalli as their LLU partner, it could be this that gives the up to 1mb upload.. Try putting your phone number in this page and see what it returns

      As IANTE says, Max Premium is available which goes up to 832kbps. Plusnet do this for an extra 8 a month, I don't know about Eclipse.

      You could try phoning Eclipse and find out what they can offer at your exchange, if it is 21CN enabled they may be offering up to 24Mb/1Mb.

      Its not 21CN yet, Sam Knows says its planned for Q3 2009 but you know what BT are like =)

      Well Sky hit a new low last night, 9:04.. Less then 1meg down and 200 up.. Roll on MAC code =)

      I would think id be able to get the full 823kbs, My Line att is 2db and noise is 26db (Upstream)

      I'll give them a call see what they say, Thanks
