Re: Post your Speed Results

Where can I buy a 3rd party modem from? Any normal PC parts supplier: Amazon, Scan, Aria, CCLOnline, etc etc.  You may be lucky from Currys or PC World; normally a bit expensive but quite often some good specials.

Re: Post your Speed Results

Restart your router Jason and do the test again... I've never seen anything like that haha 🙂

 

Not the modem, the HomeHub.

Re: Post your Speed Results

@jasonmymail The 'speed coming into your house' figure on that test is often a bit silly.  Usually it is a synthesized guess of the sync speed using IPProfile*1.033; fairly often 0 (when they can't actually get at the IP Prolife), and there is at least one other post of a stupidly high figure like yours.  That said; it usually gets the sync speed right, but that expectation makes it all the more confusing when it gets it wrong.

 

It is much better to run the speedtest at  http://speedtest.btwholesale.com/ and after the test choose ‘Further Diagnostics’ and post the speeds and the profiles that this gives.  That gives a 'raw' IP Profile speed which is more meaningful than the BT Retail test's synthetic 'speed coming into you house'.  Unfortunately, without an unlocked modem you can't actually see the modem->cabinet sync speed ('speed coming into your house').

Re: Post your Speed Results

@Ripsta  You can do the pretty but silly BT Retail test at http://diagnostics.bt.com/login/?workflow=Speed

 

But see my previous post for why it is a bad idea.

Re: Post your Speed Results

Yes, You're more than likely sync'd at the max 80Mbps on your downstream. 🙂
