Just a quick question re my broadband speed.

Go to solution

Hi (again)

 

The advertised speed (from BT's choose for package page) for my line is 8.5Mb-13Mb, but I only ever have 5meg max (on a good day)?

 

Just wondered.

Yes I have. The speed is no where near.

 

Do I have a fault with my line maybe?

You need to find your adsl stats and your attenuation and from at you will get a good idea of connection speed. Try this link see if it helps. http://www.kitz.co.uk/adsl/frogstats.php

You are on adlmax and have a connection speed of 7.5mb. Your connection time is only 31 min is that due to router dropping connection or manual reset?

I've had connection problems, and I did a manual reset.

 

So.... How do i actually achieve connection speed of 7.5mb?

With your current connection speed your profile should be 6.5mb giving a download speed of about 6 mb on a good line. You can see here. http://www.kitz.co.uk/adsl/IPprofile.htm
