      16mb Package getting about 2.2kbps

      Hi,


      I got connected to Sky Broadband unlimited this week and Iím getting pretty good speeds of 400kb/sec download on http but when connecting to Newshosting I canít seem to get over 50kb/sec. Iíve tried connecting on all the ports but speed stays the same.


      Can anyone help as I migrated from Tiscali to Sky as I read on this forum usenet speeds were not throttled.


      Any help appreciated.

      Re: 16mb Package getting about 2.2kbps

      It splits the 50kbs between the 20 bots and not increased the speed.. Also if I am on 16mb should I be getting better speed than 2.2?

      I did an online adsl test and pinged a server in New York it said I was getting DL speed of 753kb anyway of getting overall quicker speed ?

      I'm a bit confused about the units you are using to describe your speeds

      You say you're on the 16mb package getting 2.2kbps (!) in the title, then say you get 400kbps on HTTP and 50kbps on Newshosting.

      What speed is your router connecting at and what is your attenuation/noise margin? And what speed are you getting with this site?

      Re: 16mb Package getting about 2.2kbps

      ok I ran TCPOptimizer and now I am getting 2983kbps but I have checked and I am only 2.5km from exchange and should be getting much better speed than that I think.

      Please advise?

      No - I'm afraid not. You might be 2.5km from the exchange in a straight line but your actual line length is nearer 4km.

      That said your connection speed is a little low for your attenuation which is probably down to noise. If you can clear that up then you could expect ~4250kbps.

      A download speed of 2983kbps is about right for your current connection speed so no problems there.
