      Stats appear OK how come speed identical on max to g.dmt

      Was stuck on g.dmt getting average of 6120.
      After getting switched to Max speeds are still 6120. (Namesco BroadbandMax ADSL Broadband Bandwidth speedtest | Test your ADSL Broadband connection speed)
      Is this an exchange thing (not sure where to get info, sam knows doesn't appear to list) or am I being limited in some way. I was told before I joined sky that maximum speeds would be possible.
      Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Re: Stats appear OK how come speed identical on max to g.dmt

      Looks like I found the answer at dslzone.

      My exchange is adsl enabled up to 8Mbps. This doesn't answer why I was offered Max at 16Mbps both by email and by phone.
      I thought if an exchange was adsl+2 enabled for sky then 16Mbps was available.

      Is there any way to find out if the exchange will be brought up to speed in the future? Pretty miffed at this stage.

      Can't comment on the detailed stats but, you do appear to be connected at 14029kbps on ADSL2+. It may just be that your download speeds are being affected by errors on the line but I'll leave that to the experts.

      try downloading a file from mirror.ac.uk or something like that, and see what download speed you get. these speedtests are rarely reliable.

      Thanks agentsmith,

      Do you mean by using an ftp program?
      Tried that and couldn't see any way of determining the download speed.
      Using a mac and Fetch downloaded a file but didn't seem to shed any light on the speed of download (my ignorance probably.)
      The previous speed tests using a number of speed test sites all seem to be consistent before and after max connection.

      Have you tried using the TCP Optimizer here:

      Optimising your Broadband Connection

      First post in the thread. It seems to have cured a lot of peoples' speed problems.

      Thanks James but I'm running on a Mac G4 - don't think there is an equivalent prog or if it's necessary love to be told otherwise.
      My stats seem to be okay and I'm only 1 kilometre from exchange.
