      Typical. Just shelled out on fibre and I then go and get my fastest download reading ever. Still, 2.91mb/s is hardly worth crowing about.

      It's only shocking if it is a short to medium length line. If the attenuation is up in the 60s or even the high 50s it is a reasonable speed.

      I think the OP confused things by posting in the Fibre section.

      Same here.
      Altruism is a wonderful thing, but i'm slowly learning to leave it to the experts.
