      Connection speed

      I recently upgraded to the unlimited broadband package having previously been on the everyday package. My stats before the upgrade were:-


      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 7199 kbps 605 kbps
      Line Attenuation 39.5 db 22.0 db
      Noise Margin 7.9 db 16.0 db


      The router is plugged directly into the phone point, and there are no other phone extensions running off it. The router has been switched on since the upgrade on 4th February and it has not been rebooted. I am approximately 1.5 miles from my exchange (by road).


      My new stats are showing:-

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 7004 kbps 798 kbps
      Line Attenuation 39.5 db 22.0 db
      Noise Margin 8.6 db 16.0 db

      There is an increase in the upload speed but the download has gone down slightly! Should I be expecting better than this?

      You are not far off your maximum, if you have no extra sockets etc than you are getting just about all you can.

      You could try the test socket just to be sure.

      OK thanks. I'll try the test socket on the off chance, but if thats the best I can expect, I can live with it!
