      Re: Capped to 8.7mb?

      Hi

      Technically you are paying for upto 16meg as you are on Max.

      DownStream Connection Speed 10175 kbps
      UpStream Connection Speed 766 kbps
      What's the results from our Broadband Speedtester?

      You should expect to lose between 10% and 15% in overheads. So 8.7meg sounds right to me.

      Although looking at your attenuation you should see 16meg. (and in that case possibly capped)

      We estimate your line is capable of between 16mb to 24mb broadband on an ADSL2+ service.

      This is a rough guide only, and provides results of up to 24mb with the data made available to us. This is purely for indication only and should not be classed as the Speed that you will receive on any ISP's product. Due to the fact that your Telephone Line does not run in a straight line from the Exchange, the Distance from Exchange figures, are interpreted as if your Telephone Line is that exact length. In reality, it is highly unlikely that this is the case.
