Recently got upgraded to Infinity 2 and its come in more or less at the expected speed of 60mb up and a little less at 15mb down rather than 20mb. So, during the first 10 days, is that speed likely to go up? Have others started on the predicted speed only to see an increase?
Also, my last provider was more than happy to tweak settings for you, often squeezing more out of the line. I assume this isn't something BT do as rule and there’s no manual settings anywhere to do the same?
Thanks for the answer - I assume BT start at the expected speed, see if its stable then slowly increase from there?
Actually 90% of the time your speed goes down in the first few days as it stablises. It is normally fastest when it is first enabled on the line, then as it realises there are errors or re-syncs, it applies interleaving or reduced speed as appropriate to stabilise.
It would be DLM rather than interleaving reducing speeds, interleaving just re-corrects the errors on the line.
Sorry, you are right about interleaving. I just meant that when running speedtest.net, people may notice changes to their pings and speed.
Thanks for the replies! On a slightly different note, I noticed the other day that a new cabinet has sprung up (I think) much closer to my home. Would BT move my connection to that cabinet if I ask?
