Re: I now have a VDSL2 profile 17a and upto 50Mb ??

My exchange is going to be enabled in 3 weeks and I want to make sure I get the fastest speeds, would any of these be suitable for increasing speeds?

Whatever you buy, you cannot get more than what your line is capable off.

 

if you are going to buy a router or modem/router, then buy it for what it can offer you, like better wireless, more security features, the ability to use different dns servers, port forwarding, even price.

As said above the line will go as fast as it can, although a lot of us have seen the speeds move all over the place in the first month or so and settle down.

 

There is a very good buffalo airstation avalible for £25 which does the job as a FTTC router it just doesn't have gigabit ethernet or 5Ghz wireless N.

 

You need to work out what you need the thing to do and then work out what bit of kit will get you that.

 

I got something top end as I needed to use quite a lot of advanced features which the HH3 didn't offer.

Sorry for the total noob question, but I've spent ages trying to find my stats - where do I go to find them? Thanks!

Hi Jimmy

 

Don't apologise It's BT that should be apologising.... Smiley Happy

 

Why??? Because with the White Openreach Modem and the HomeHub3 they supply you can't get access to any stats.

 

The only thing you can do is get the IP Profile for your line by running the FTTC part on http://www.speedtester.bt.com/

 

That will tell you the max speed your set to.

 

Some people that have replaced the HH3 at their own cost have access to their stats.

Ah!  That makes total sense:

 

I did the BT test and dont think I'm getting the best I can

 

> Download speedachieved during the test was - 18214 Kbps
 For your connection, the acceptable range of speedsis 12000-38710 Kbps .
 Additional Information:
 IP Profile for your line is -38710 Kbps

 

>Upload speed achieved during the test was - 8622 Kbps
 Additional Information:
 Upstream Rate IP profile on your line is - 10000 Kbps

 

Will call BT on Monday and see what can be done.  

 

Hate being new!!

 

Thank you
