What was your point about posting a link to it. It's not against forum rules so why comment on it?

It depends on what context you are posting. If it is advertising their services or prices and such like that is not allowed.

Just thought maybe a link to a BT wholesale site my be more appropriate.

It's a while since I read that one but if I recall it was for ADSL and does not mention VDSL which is covered better in the PlusNet link.

Yeh you are right. Looks like they have better support than on here.

"However, one thing to check is that you don't have star wiring, where an extension is taken from a junction box on the incoming feed before the master socket"

 

No, the ethernet is running from the master socket.  My IP profile was always 38.91 on day 1, and my effective speed I was getting not much lower than that

 

Anyway, since they messed around rebooting my line 12 times following the call, my profile has gone down overnight, so I hope it picks back up again

Judging by the noise margins, your line is going at about the speed that would be expected.

 

What was the estimated speed?  You can get that at https://www.btwholesale.com/includes/adsl/main.html


May I ask which statistic points to me getting a slow IP profile?

8. Noise margin:    6.1 / 6.0
9. Line attenuation:    0.0 / 18.4
10. Signal attenuation:    0.0 / 16.4

 

In this thread https://community.bt.com/t5/BT-Infinity-Speed-Connection/expert-needed/td-p/1357459

Their stats were

Noise margin: 6.0 / 8.5 ; Line attenuation: 0.0 / 14.0 ; Signal attenuation: 0.0 / 14.1

Download speed of 50Mpbs

 

The advice here was "their noise margin is 8.5 when the optimum is 6."

So my noise margin is near optimum

 

I understand my down line attenuation of 14.0 is pretty good (read a story how someone's wiring was fixing by a BT engineer and it reduced from 22 to 14 and made a big difference")

 

Signal attenuation - slightly higher than the above

So which bit of my line stats suggest I will get a poor IP profile?

You have said that you are about 400mtrs straight line from the cabinet. If your line does take a straight line the distance is a big contributing factor on what sort of speed you can expect. Given your stats and distance to the cabinet I think you are getting as good as it gets.

 

See graph. Infinity is VDSL2.
