Just recently moved over to BT from another ISP, which has greatly improved my line speed however I'm still having a bit of an issue.
Although my download speed has pretty much doubled and then some from a non exsiting .5mbs to a 2.7mbs my upload speed has remaibed unchainged at around the .3/.4mbs mark.
Now I was wondeing if I could improve this or if possible improve then both slightly? As I game online a little bit more speed wouldn't hurt.

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 you may need to 'show detail' to get all stats (if hub enter 192.168.1.254 in your browser and navigate to adsl or if HH4/5 then go to troubleshooting then logs and you are looking for 2 line together when hub last connected to internet and they will show your connection speed and noise margin or if netgear enter 192.168.0.1). Then run btspeedtester (MAC users may have problems). when first test completes then run diagnostic test and post the results ( do not reset the router).
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
Enter your phone number and post results. Remember yo delete number https://www.btwholesale.com/includes/adsl/main.html
Someone may then be able to offer help/assistance/suggestions to your problem
If i've read correctly this should be the connection speed and noise margin :
|07:59:57, 26 Aug.||( 77.010000) DSL is up|
|07:59:55, 26 Aug.||( 75.580000) DSL noise margin: 16.00 dB upstream, 6.20 dB downstream|
|07:59:55, 26 Aug.|
( 75.510000) DSL line rate: 448 Kbps upstream, 3104 Kbps downstream
The speed tester is not working (I use a MAC so not to helpful) I have however trieed the alternate that is offered and this is the results of that:
Download speed (Mbps) : 2.75
Upload speed (Mbps) : 0.38
Ping Larency (ms) :49.75
As far as I can tell I have no master socket, or if I have it is extremly well hidden as I have checked every socket in the house. As my first thought was to try this but as the connection speed is fairly reasonable I didn't suspect a line fault I was more curious as how I could increase this further.
Do you have something like this outside on the wall o
You are on adslmax up to 8mb and 448kbos is as fast an upstream speed as you get. Can you run the dsl checker and post resilts
I have nothing like what you posted outside of the house, I have however found a box under the stairs that looks like a phone line socket but with no openings and the phone line running through it.
The results to the DNS checker are :
Featured ProductsDownstream Line Rate(Mbps)Upstream Line Rate(Mbps)Downstream Range(Mbps)Availability Date High Low High Low
|FTTC Range A (Clean)||80||80||20||20||--||Available|
|FTTC Range B (Impacted)||80||70.5||20||19||--||Available|
|WBC ADSL 2+||Up to 3||--||1.5 to 5.5||Available|
|ADSL Max||Up to 2||--||1.5 to 4.5||Available|
|WBC Fixed Rate||1||--||--||Available|
So from the checker you are able to get fibre/infinity with estimate of 80/70.5 down connection and 20/19 up connection speed. Your exchange is also upgraded to adsl2 but the change in speed from adslmax is minimal so wholesale have put your connection on adslmax
No worries, no point in channing for a such a little difference & fiber was way to expensive. Still at least I know it's the max & it is way better than what we had previously.
Thanks for the help.
Although your download speed will not change much, your upload speed could possibly double by moving to ADSL2.
If you want, when the mods post a link to them ask them if they can get you switched.
