I'd be happy with two Cola tins and a length of string; as long a they'd connect to the internet. Very light user.


how can you be on 80/10 when you connection stats show 80/16.99mb

there are no guarantees on download/upload speeds

Okay, you say you are a very light user. Therefore your current setup is perfectly fine for you, so not sure why your original gripe was relevant or  needed. I guess you were just moaning for the sake of it.

At the mechanical interfaces of my HH3B (RJ45 sockets); I would like to see more than 'upload 10Mbps'. The product description 80/20 indicates more than 10Mbps, even though the hyperthetical, software, derived stats indicate acceptable service 16.99Mbps. The logic of my observations is that I never got the 20Mbps from the get-go; therefore, I suspect my HH3B carries an upload fault from the RJ45 sockets. I am attempting to investigate this anomaly, by the substitution method.
At the end of my deliberations; if I'm right, I'll seek redress. If I'm wrong, I'll accept the results.

As a very light user, why would you need or want faster than the upload speed you have?

Also, you can't expect a decade old hub to be perfect in today's standard.

Please could you post a current speed test?

Upload Speed, somewhere closer to the billed & estimated 14-15Mbps

A decade old hub, is 10-years old.
A decayed old hub, is knackered.
BT are happy to contract you with their legacy loaned kit. Must be OK ! C-P

So why are you complaining about your upload speed then???

Also BT have not supplied that kit to customers for years.

As I pointed out already all speeds quoted by BT including the above quote from your contract are connection speeds to your router/hub and are not download speeds  If you read the T&C this is clarified and has been posted several times on the forum

I can only guess, we're entering into the World of Wind-Up.
Where Technically Gifted ends, and Chancers flourish.
The 'thread' is broken by systematic divergence from the original subject matter.
The upside of this thread is, I'm getting considerable value out of my 80/10. C-P

That which is inaccessible to the hub, stays in the hub.
It's only a shame, all ISPs promote their own Online Speed Tests, that are about as good as a Chocolate Router. C-P
