      Order Date: 2nd October 2006
      Migration from 'Nildram 8mb Actual speeds 3-5mb'
      Router Arrived: 9th October 2006
      Connection Due: 11th October 2006. On the day phone and ADSL went dead had to wait for BT to come and repair the line on the 14th. Been perfect since!
      Actual Connection Date: 14th October
      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 15,323 Kbps / 766 Kbps
      Line Attenuation 23.5 db 17.3 db
      Noise Margin 12.6 db 12.0 db
      About 780m from exchange Samknows.com

      Actual Download speeds 10-12,000 Kbps
      Any one able to see speeds above 12mbps? I would like to hope that the advertised speeds of 16Mb are possible. Though Im not complaining Its a vast improvement to my previous ISPs, the speeds I get are constant throughout the day.

      Talking So far so Good on Kemptown BRIGHTON exchange

      Type : Mid
      Order Date : 8/10/06 - hiccup - then 18/10/06
      New Connection
      Router Arrived : 27/10/06
      Connection Due : 3/11/06
      Actually Connected : 3/11/06
      Up sync speed :416kbps
      Down sync speed : 4608kbps
      Distance from the exchange : 3.83 km

      This is weird. Installation went very smoothly - only hiccup was me accidently disabling my network card :-)

      Weirder still, but just fab nonetheless, is that both Sky and BT inititally told me I would get upwards of 3000kbps, then BT realised my line was wrongly listed as old-fashioned hardwired, ie no plug and white box in the house. When they changed that, their (and Sky's and anybody else's) line speed test insisted I would get only 500-1000kbps.

      I've just tried the DSLZone.uk line test which still says 500kbps, but here I am (so far) steadily pulling in 4000kbps + :-) :-)

      From ADSLGuide.org.uk:

      Downstream 3,860.7 Kbps ( = 3.8 Mbps )
      Upstream 349.4 Kbps ( = 0.3 Mbps )

      From the Netgear Router Status page:

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 4608 kbps 416 kbps
      Line Attenuation 55.0 db 31.5 db
      Noise Margin 7.0 db 14.0 db



      And then, immediately after a soft reboot....



      *** Update ***

      Just installed an XTE2500, specs are now:

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 4576 kbps 416 kbps
      Line Attenuation 56.0 db 31.5 db
      Noise Margin 7.6 db 13.0 db



      Which as you can see, has made bugger-all difference :-)

      Up sync speed - 448
      Down sync speed - 2784 (according to the router, but according to various "speed tests" closer to 1400).
      Distance from the exchange - just over 3km "ish"
