      Re: What do these stats mean - good or bad?

      Had a look at cable into master and it is three twist though it seems wired up strange. The wires from the three twist go into back of master somewhere and the wires that go upstairs are wired into the front plate of the master i.e. those are the ones that come away with face plate when unscrewed. Only two wires are connected from the three twist as is the cable going upstairs. I am going to get the engineer in to have a good look at wiring and put right what needs putting right.

      Hi Faust.
      Thats prob the best idea. The wiring of domestic lines is quite simple at the user end, it's a matter of a half hour to put this right.

      OK, engineer been today, all new quality wiring installed and new master socket, though engineer said that having the original socket as a master as well as the one in the kitchen shouldn't really have any bearing on my Broadband speeds. However, for the sake of tidiness there is now just the one master and three additional sockets. These are the latest stats taken from the computers socket - there doesn't appear to be one smidgen of an improvement.

      Engineer had a line test done this morning by BT and it got the all clear.
      It looks like I'm simply going to have to live with what I've got. Engineer couldn't offer any explanation as to why my neighbour is getting better speeds as he confirmed that neighbour is on same loop.

      I still think its something to do with the wiring as your results from the test socket in post #28 show a sync of almost 7meg. I'm probably going over old ground here but you do have filters on every phone , sky box etc.

      Having got your wiring sorted with just one master operating correctly, you can now go for a filter faceplate. This gives you the same connection as if you were at the test socket.

      I did ask him to fit a filter faceplate but he advised against it. He had a few on the van but he said they are proving more problematic than an ordinary ADSL filter - said he's personally been back to 3 recently that have failed within months of being fitted. P.S. now hitting 7029. No sure I could ask for much better than this - though actual speeds are no better, not a lot I can do about contention ratios???

      Hi Faust.
      If it's the same guy who said that two masters on a line would not effect BB, then his comments on filter faceplates do not supprise me. Still, you have a much better sync speed now, and if you can maintain this your throughput speed should increase

      Can someone explain this to me accurately - I'm still syncing at 7024 kbps which I think is about the best I will achieve. I know about contention ratios so don't expect to get anywhere near my sync speed. However, the way BT rates my line still has me puzzled. It doesn't matter which Broadband checker I use it's always the same - the checker has determined that your line should support speeds up to 4.5 mbps. The exchange is flagged as "green" I am 475 yards from the exchange as the crow flies or 675 yards actual, the exchange wasn't built until 1992 so is relatively new and I'm now syncing at 7024 - why then is the line only rated at 4.5 mbps. And even stranger why is my next door neighbour with an almost identical setup syncing slightly below me getting a regular 6 mbps and I'm only averaging 3.4 mbps?????
