      Need advice about my down speed

      We've estimated that your maximum download speed is 17 meg
      that is what bethere says to me about my bt line when I run the test.

      Here are my speeds
      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 4095 kbps 574 kbps
      Line Attenuation 58.5 db 39.2 db
      Noise Margin 9.4 db 10.5 db

      I am on this exchange Samknows Broadband - Baillieston (WSBAI) Exchange

      Should I be getting better speeds since I am only about 1 mile from the exchange?

      I have a face plate installed and it says ADSL v1.0 on it and when I take that off I still get the same speeds.

      cheers

      I am telling you it is a mile away!
      I don't know why I am getting slower speeds

      Did you use the Skyuser speed calculator? Im guessing you did and used 1 mile as the distance. Instead using the attenuation figure of 58.5 would give a more realistic estimation!

      You will never see anywhere near 16mb with that attenuation.

      5mb is about the maximum you will get.

      Re: Need advice about my down speed

      Ok hold on al be right back when I have moved 2 mins.
      Thanks for your helpful reply.
      There must be another way because is 1.33 km not worthy of better speeds?

      Re: Need advice about my down speed

      unless you have a test socket, and an extention is causing the attenuation to be as high as it is, you're NOT 1.3KM from the exchange...
