Wow, extremely impressive speed test.... especially at >1.7km line length...
Can you go on your router and show us your line stats?

Connection Speed 7767 kbps 766 kbps
Line Attenuation 40.5 db 25.9 db
Noise Margin 7.2 db 12.6 db
I have rebooted my moded since then as my internet became quite laggy last night. To be honest, I have my doubts about the accuracy of that particular test. I had not used it before and was very buzzed to get such great results that I posted them. On reflection, I do no think I was getting anywhere near those speeds
Although I ran the test repeatedly getting similar results. If anyone else could run this test we could get a comparison. I just do not think my line would support those speeds.
Well that settles it I have just run the test again and gotten similar results, which is surely not possible at the connection listed above.
I will run some on speed test.net later. Off to work now!

Line stats = what speed
I'm waiting for my line to go live on 7 September and am hoping i might get an increase in speed.
Have mostly moved due to cost saving of £16.99 a month
Here are my current stats:
ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
Connection Speed 1152 kbps 288 kbps
Line Attenuation 56 db 15.5 db
Noise Margin 15 db 20 db
I know there not brilliant -i'm about 3 miles from eXhange. never seemingly been able to get BT's upgrades (up 2mb or up to 8mb) so any increase would be bonus. The 'Sky' guy said I'll definatley get 2mb. Is he right?

Well you should gain rather than loose speed certainly, the fact is while there are guides which can help you predict your speed, there are so many factors which can affect your actual speed, it is impossible to say you will get this. 2mb sounds a reasonable expectation though.

I have discovered that the speed test I used gives falsely elevated results when the user has Norton Internet security running. DoH!
I kind of knew they were too good to be true
But I have replaced them with a result from speed test.net
This speed test does not work if you have Norton...
Sorry for raising any false hopes guys.

Thats an interesting tit-bit do you know of any others that do the same sort of thing.Ray
Some Advice.. Its always advisable to inform your old ISP as soon as you have migrated that you have moved.
If you would like to know the straight line distance to your exchange then
Would you like an idea of the possible speeds you will get with the Max Package then click here or for the Connect Package then click here

Not off hand, but there are a few other firewalls that stop speed tests from working properly...

@ James thanks, I figured that out after having a look around your forums. I just wanted to let everyone here know because, people are watching this site and making decisions on whether to switch ISP or not. I posted my inaccurate results here and just felt I should remove them and explain why.
