It says IP Profile for your line is - 85.64 Mbps??

It's just while BT test to see if people can get higer speeds than the 79Mpbs of Infinity2

That's impossible because Openreach limit the speed to 80Mbps.

The actual download speed does not change, just the profile speed, so it has nothing to do with openreach.

Has nothing to-do with BT either.

If Openreach aren't going to change the actual download speed then the high profile speed will cause more data to be delivered to the cabinet that it can deal with which will result in packets being dropped and retransmissions flooding the network. 

 

I don't think BT have thought this through.

It has actually 🙂 ISPs are now required to prove that at least 10% of their customers can get a certain speed before they advertise that product and that is all BT are doing. End of Line

That's exactly how it works. How do you think the BRAS profile works?

Not like that. The limit factor of data is the modem at the customer end, if the same amount of data is flowing up and down then there will be no more data than before.

Wrong. The modem is owned by Openreach and talks to the DSLAM in the cab also owned by Openreach and you already said it has nothing to do with Openreach.

 

The modem and the DSLAM are in sync. The BRAS profile on the other hand is not in sync. That is the problem.
