      These test were made some time ago when 512 was considered very fast.

      ^^^^^^^^^
      I think Sam is taking about his current position, it is a long time since 512 was fast, even with BT.

      Well BT systems say my line will only go at 1.5 meg.



      *Raises Eyebrow*

      My line stats were made with my first ISP UKonline. They were providing me with 1MB. Now back then IIRC the fastest they would provide me was 1MB i think they just gave me some head room with 1.5MB.

      Experience on the forum has shown that BT's guesstimate is usually half the speed you actually get. Unfortunately Sky use this figure for their 'available speed' estimate and quote it back at you if you have a problem, even if you previously had a much better speed.

      Yeah the whole lot! Phone cuts out BB (we sometimes even had to pick up the phone to get the BB to work)! But thankfully the good people at BT put in a new socket, incoming line and replaced the pairs all the way to the green box and made a new connection from there, and have been getting a stable ever since . BTW i have capped the line my self to keep the errors low (and yes i am getting 3MB, although i have seen my line get 4.5meg).
