Managed to get connected to the max package with out any hassle (except for Parceline buts thats another story!)
I'm getting speeds of between 3.3 and 6.5 mb according to speedtest.net and adslguide.
Ive searched for this but cant find anything on these forums. Is there a stabilisation period after which the line becomes more stable or did I dream that?
ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
Connection Speed 15323 kbps 766 kbps
Line Attenuation 26.5 db 14.2 db
Noise Margin 10.3 db 11.6 db
Does that all tally with the speeds Im getting? Must admit I thought it would be faster or am I just being impatient?!
Thanks in advance

Thanks for the reply. I'm downloading the link - what is it?!
Got up to 8 on the html test last night. 4 seems about average, no drop outs or anything.
(Except for the wireless dongle locking up the computer )

if you look in the speed test section you could try the optimizer in there. It may help!

Some Advice.. Its always advisable to inform your old ISP as soon as you have migrated that you have moved.
If you would like to know the straight line distance to your exchange then
Would you like an idea of the possible speeds you will get with the Max Package then click here or for the Connect Package then click here

speedtest is looking ok
not the max you can achieve, but i dont think there is anything wrong with your connection, just the servers you are downloading from arent providing the full capacity for your connection.

Just had a go at downloading that file again and it stabilised at 1.3 mb which is a definite improvement
