Infinity 2 installed today..

...and I'm happy.

 

Was told when I ordered that I would get 58/17 but when installed it came through as 80/20 Smiley Very Happy

 

Now my only problem is getting that speed through to my back room as the Gigabit homeplugs I use will only push to 40mbps.

 

Looks like I'll be crimping a nice long ethernet cable later this week - oh well.

Re: Infinity 2 installed today..

Glad the broadband itself is good.

You should get better than that with gigabit powerlines,  I get double that (real throughput) with 500Mbps ones in a fairly awkward mains setup.

 

A few things to check on powerlines.

1 - NEVER use them plugged into a surge protected extension.

2 - Do not use plugged into a twin socket with computer things in the other half of the twin.

3 - If possible, don't plug into an extension at all.

 

I didn't believe 2 when I first read it, but it's true.  Small rearrangement of sockets nearly doubled my powerline speed.

Yeah, I use them in the wall sockets only but still get these poor speeds, I will look at rearranging sockets though.

 

Weird as the estate is only 15 years old - hardly old wiring.

Woah! That's fast! Yeah I was quoted 68/19 but I recieved 74/10-19

 

I thought the max line profile for BT Infinity 2 was 77 download and upload 20?
