      No.

      Download/upload speed is dependent on many factors: it is dependent on sync speed for a start and that is dependent on attenuation amongst other things.

      Without basic information such as your attenuation, sync speed and noise margin it is impossible to comment. Details of your connection e.g. wired or wireless would also help.

      Can I suggest you spend a few minutes reading the first sticky in my signature at the bottom of this post and then maybe a few other posts on the forum?

      It helps but it's not the full picture.

      What it does show is you aren't capped but have a long line and a great deal of noise on it.

      As advised, please take some time reading a few posts on this forum, particularly the one I pointed you to and in the cabling and faceplate help forum.

      The same thing is covered many times a day - every day.

      Yes it is - thanks. The other thread has no replies so I've deleted it.

      If you'd bothered to read my earlier post you'd possibly recall that I said it's impossible to comment on a speedtest result without the other info needed.

      I don't know how to make it any clearer. You've changed your wiring so your line qualities have changed. Nobody can guess what they now are. Without this info your speedtest and question is meaningless.
