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.
Restart your router Jason and do the test again... I've never seen anything like that haha 🙂
Not the modem, the HomeHub.
you guys make me smile you post your speeds without giving out how far you are for the FTTC cabinet it seems a worthless thread without the full details, but i'll post my Speedtest.net speeds 725 meters from Cab on a 40/10 profile
how did you do this test please ?
the exchange / home / device - not speedtest.net lol
@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').
It's matched the sync perfectly for me every time... abpart from whenI had a bRAS mismatch.
Yes, You're more than likely sync'd at the max 80Mbps on your downstream. 🙂
