4mb to house, 2.8MB from test socket

Hello all,

After doing a BT based speed test I noticed that my speed was 3.9MB from the exchange to my house but only 2.8Mb from the test socket (all wired results)

So where has my 1 mb gone? I could really do with it!

Hope someone can help and thanks in advance.

Cheers

Mike

Re: 4mb to house, 2.8MB from test socket

welcome to the BT community forum where customers help customers and only BT employees are the forum mods

in order for the forum members to help please can you post the adsl stats from your router may need to 'show detail' to get all stats (if hub enter 192.168.1.254 in your browser and navigate to adsl or use a-z, if netgear enter 192.168.0.1) and run  btspeedtester  (MAC users may have problems). when first test completes then run diagnostic test and post the results .


are you connected directly via a filter to the NTE5 master or test socket or to somewhere else? Is the master the only phone socket in your home?

Have you tried the quiet line test? - dial 17070 option 2 - should hear nothing - best done with a corded phone. if cordless phone you may hear a 'dull hum' which is normal

Someone may then be able to offer help/assistance/suggestions to your problem

Re: 4mb to house, 2.8MB from test socket

the stats page you were on should have a 'show detail' or something similar which will display more error information.  is it possible for you to connect to the test socket and then repost new stats as this will eliminate and noise problems caused by your internal wiring

 

your conenction speed is 3.84mb with a download speed of 3.25mb which looks ok and better than your initial post

Re: 4mb to house, 2.8MB from test socket

have you moved to the test socket or have you just reset the router as connection time only 34min
