      Hi I that was on the 21/03/2010
      my Bt speed test 00:50 22/03/2010
      Download speed achieved during the test was - 3261 Kbps
      For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 1200-7150 Kbps.
      Additional Information:
      Your DSL Connection Rate :3968 Kbps(DOWN-STREAM), 832 Kbps(UP-STREAM)
      IP Profile for your line is - 3500 Kbps
      looked great until now the signature looks good but now well it has changed to below
      Bt speed test 12:46 23/03/2010
      Download speed achieved during the test was - 2791 Kbps
      For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 1200-7150 Kbps.
      Additional Information:
      Your DSL Connection Rate :3968 Kbps(DOWN-STREAM), 832 Kbps(UP-STREAM)
      IP Profile for your line is - 3000 Kbps
      within 24hrs profile down 500kbps But there is no reason for it to drop nothing has changed except the Sky throttling in the last 24hrs down to 25kbps at the lowest and 236kbps highest I should say nothing and nothing will happen But me if I see a problem I will say something I will do another Bt test on the 25/03/2010 and see what the difference is then may even change the router

      This is another of mine steve taken from BT Speedtester at 23.01 24.3.10



      Test1 comprises of Best Effort Test: -provides background information.

      Download Speed
      5681 Kbps

      0 Kbps 7150 Kbps
      Max Achievable Speed

      Download speed achieved during the test was - 5681 Kbps
      For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 600-7150 Kbps.
      Additional Information:
      Assured Rate IP profile on your line is - 7150 Kbps
      Can you or any else explain why your acceptable range of speeds is 1200 to 7150 whereas mine is 600 to 7150? Bear in mind I am sat on top of my exchange 465 yards according to SamKnows.

      Hi looking back through my speed tests I had
      For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 600-7150 Kbps.
      it only changed on the 22/03/2010 before that it was
      acceptable range of speeds is 800-2000 Kbps.
      and the one nobody wants is
      acceptable range of speeds is 100-500 Kbps.
      I will try and find out why the difference. I did a Bt speed test put it on http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/sky-b...t-blog-10.html the reason I do the tests is to keep an eye on the speeds and profile and you never know who`s looking at them as well

      Just found this from Bt faQs
      Acceptable range of speeds is 288-500 Kbps. If your download speed lies in this range, then there is no fault on your line and your Broadband service is deemed to be working fine.
      there is more on FAQ-BT Performance Tester I have even seen this one
      0 Kbps 7150 Kbps Max Achievable Speed
      that would mean from 0kbps to 7150kbps any speed between the two is ok 1kbps is in between so that`s ok

      Well Steve, now into April - did the big changes you mentioned that were gong to happen in March regarding Sky Connect happen? I have been on Mars for the last couple of weeks and only just got back so wondering what the state of play is?

      Hi the only changes at the moment are http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/sky-b...atus-page.html which should help everyone. otherwise everything has gone quiet still awaiting a telephone call. I was looking at this earlier
      thinkbroadband :: Ofcom seek changes to Voluntary Code of Practice on Broadband Speeds interesting. How Mars this time of the year I hear it can be quite cold on the dark side.

      Yes Mars is pretty chilly at night though at least no Sky Connect so that is a plus. Voluntary Codes of Practice are a joke, they never work, Ofcom is also a joke as they are clearly in bed with the ISP's. Mind you it will be even worse if the Tories get in as their policy for extending next generation broadband is to leave it to the market - yea like that's going to work. All that will happen is that the ISP's will fight over the same large profitable exchanges and the geographical majority will still be in the same position as they are now in ten years time.

      Hi I still have not heard anything very quiet at the moment. The only thing found is Sky now have a Live person chat on the on line Sky products pages which was quite interesting I was looking for information on the new Sky+ and Sky+HD boxes for a thread I was looking at http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/sky-s...-told-sky.html here`s something that might interest you thinkbroadband :: Who should pay for universal broadband? I am in a large profitable exchange that no one seems interested in. Maybe if I kept Quiet some ISPs might take some interest

      Some economists have argued that it is too early to spend public money on next-generation broadband as doing so could dissuade the competitive market from doing so on its own
      The above is a quote from the link you provided me with Steve. Do these people live in the same world the rest of us inhabit? Which competitive market is going to be interested in exchanges such as ours with less than a thousand connections (there are lots of these small exchanges up and down the country)?

      Hi if you think that was daft how about thinkbroadband :: Digital Economy Bill: An ISP perspective
      At the end of summer 2009, Lord Mandelson took things into his own hands after what turned out to be a well publicised (after the fact) lunch with music industry executive David Geffen. The result was the Digital Economy Bill as laid out before us today.
      Anything for a good meal. My exchange has over 23,000 domestic properties and still classed a Market 1. But you are right about rural area`s you would think by now that someone would have an answer if Bt upgraded all the rural exchanges to Wholesale Broadband Connect (WBC) and offered a 12 to 18 month contract to have it done. I think there is a lot of profit in that.

      I don't see how your exchange can be listed as Market 1 as Orange have LLU in the exchange, therefore it must be Market 2. The B****r of our exchange is that it isn't rural but in a city conurbation. It therefore falls into "we don't know what to call this one" category i.e. not rural but to small to be of any commercial interest. My local MP is now involved so let's see if he can glean more info from BT than anyone else has managed to date.
