      Do we now ditch speedtest.net for being unreliable?
      Where do we go for credible speed tests?

      Download a Linux ISO from the University of Kent mirror service

      I used to use Maidenhead but it seems like it's only 10Mbit now? That's all I ever hit but I get ~12Mbit from London even though it's further down south

      Your connection would have to be over 92% efficient to get that speed, which is not very likely.
      Use the Skyuser tester, which I have suggested many times before.

      Here are mine, hopefully they are good enough for the 20Mb which may or may not be happening.

      I can't see you getting 20meg if/when it is available I'm afraid: your line attenuation would only support a shade over 17meg; your noise margin shows that the 16meg you have is pretty much all your line condition will support.

      Here's my results above. I have Connect and am unimpressed with speed so far.

      Here's the connection info from the Sagem router:

      ADSL LinkDownstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 7808 kbps 448 kbps
      Line Attenuation 37.0 db 21.5 db
      Noise Margin 8.3 db 20.0 db

      Is there anything I can do to improve things?
      Incidentally, I'm only about 50 miles from the Maidenhead server, not the estimated 200!

      How long have you been connected? Connect has a 7-10 days line training period during which your profile will be set, until then your speed will fluctuate.

      As you are on a BT connection you should try the Bt Performance Tester. To use it - Go to BT Performance Tester enter your phone number then your ADSL username. This will do an official BT speed test and show your present profile and throughput. Your ADSL username is <the LAN MAC number of your router, no colons, followed by> @skydsl This can be found on the label on your router or in the router Staus page.
