      mine 11601 kbps nextdoor 16023 Kbps

      My next door neighbor was only syncing at 5500Kbps on the max package using filters, so I too my BT installed face plate and tried it and I was ASTONISHED that he could sync at 16000+ kbs wheras I can only get arround 11000-12000. I have checked and there are only the 2wires connected behing the BT socket so it's not the extra ring wire causing the problem. Is there anything I can do about this as I'm now jelious of him as he hardly uses the net and I use it ALL the time for surfing and downloading.

      its just line conditions - really no point complaining to Sky as you'll get capped and tbh that's a very immature way to look at your connection seeing as about 90% of the rest of us would kill for a connection like that...

      on a side note, what do you get in your test socket with just a filter? stats too help...

      stats in the test socket are identical to going through the adsl filter

      are both house master sockets in identical locations and of similar install dates
      if newish built houses then they probably are but if ex-council or council stock then no
      internal wireing length and age can make a difference to sync speed i removed 40 meters of internal cabling by moving master-socket and sync changed from 6mb to 16mb speed went from 5mb to 13mb could sync at 16mb at old location with router at master but had to use wireless and speed was 1.5mb

      Both houses are private and about 10-12 years old and the master sockets are in the same place. I'm happy with my speed, it was just a shock that my next door neighbor could sync 4000-5000 Kbps more than me. I wasn't expecting that much speed defference.

      As monday says, if you post your router stats it would give us a clue as to why and advice could be given accordingly

      Re: mine 11601 kbps nextdoor 16023 Kbps

      Mine
      Connection Speed 11601 kbps 764 kbps
      Line Attenuation 37.5 db 21.1 db
      Noise Margin 7.5 db 14.0 db

      My neighbours were something like
      Connection Speed 16021 kbps 764 kbps
      Line Attenuation 32.5 db 21.1 db
      Noise Margin 6.9 db 14.0 db
      the downstream for my neighbour is a guess as I wasn't looking at them. He is now connected back through his normal BT phone only faceplate at 5400Kbps and happy with it.
