      Thanks guys - I'll add your suggestions later.



      @krysis

      Not sure what you mean by "Headline speed" and "Actual speed"

      Do you mean alternative terms for sync speed and throughput?

      Re: Common ADSL jargon and abbreviations

      Sure but I don't recognise the terms as they're not ones I use or have come across

      Hence why I asked does headline speed mean sync and actual mean throughput?

      Yes see what you mean when I looked I thought it meant Actual as for an example
      in a speed test
      Actual IP throughput. the actual speed you are receiving and IP profile for line the speed the line is holding for a test. I`m probably wrong sorry about that

      Its ofcoms new words all isp's have to use them now.. apparently.

      Headline speed - What is advertised eg: 16Mb
      Actual speed - Throughput speed, browsing speed etc..
