      Upgraded Speed Slower

      Upgraded yesterday to Mid from Base.

      Download Speed increased immediately from an actual of 1741 to 5287 kbps

      However, upload reduced from 343 to 313 kbps.

      Also at times there is hesitance in operation, for example as I am typing this the words do not appear, then suddenly materialise upon the screen?

      Does anyone know if this will 'adjust' in the 72 hour settling period?

      Many thanks

      There is no settling period on Mid.
      However as you now have a faster connection it will be more prone to problems caused by poor internal wiring etc.
      Try connecting to your Master test socket and see if this improves things, and post your router statistics.

      The poor reponse time when typing sounds more like a computer problem than an internet one.
      Try looking at your task manager to see what its up to.

      Wireless key boards a prone to this. If you are using one, try moving the receiver close to the keyboard.
