with your current attenuation and noise margin already at 4.4db I can'tsee you get much better than you have - about 1mb
I'm not a techy so don't understand a lot of the numbers but I certainly had a faster speed with my previous provider. The speed test was only giving a figure of 0.32 Mbps whereas I used to get closer to 1.5Mbps.
Hi John, As I said, I'm not a techie so I don't really understand the numbers. But looking back at the speed test stats from my TalkTalk days, my IP profile was quoted as 1250Kbps (which I assume to be 1.25Mbps) With BT it was 0.5Mbps yesterday & is showing as 0.75Mbps today (with a D/L speed of 0.43Mbps). And even if I don't know about the numbers, I know that my internet is a lot slower. I used to be able to stream BBC Iplayer (just) but now can't run more than about 5 seconds at a time. As far as I can see, the only thing that should have changed substantially is who I'm paying my bill to.
Hi your download speed cannot exceed your IP profile
So does this mean that an 8mb service can't supply 1.25mb but a 20mb service can???
the reason for the speed difference between Bt and your old provider is that Talk Talk they are an LLU provider meaning they have there own equipment in the exchange and it was an UP to 20mb service with BT you are on an up to 8mb service
Don't know about that but TalkTalk directed me to the exact same speed test site which is where the numbers came from.
cpf has said his ip profile was reported as 1250kbps which is a bt ip profile, tt don't use ip profiles j mate 😉
