The hub is connected to the master socket (it`s the only socket, no extensions, only 1 cordless phone base) using a 0.5 metre cable. Also tried the test socket, no improvement there. Could it be a stale or stuck profile, or maybe crosstalk? It`s not a big deal, we`re still happy with the speeds, just curious.
try running btspeedtester again but use IE/Edge other have been giving odd results
Thanks for the reply. All tests have been run with IE using ethernet cable to PC. Actual downloading speeds on the PC never exceed 70. Wi fi speeds only drop a bit to 67-68.
Also, the DLM re-synced 8-9 days ago (possibly due to connecting a newer, thicker dsl cable to the hub a few days earlier), increasing the sync speed from 76 to 80, which also increased the actual speed from 64-65 to the current 68-69. It appears there is always approx 14-15% speed difference between the sync and actual speed.
Which is due to the overheads in the different protocols in use. Sync speed will always be greater than download speed.
@licquorice there is something not right as sync speed is 80mb but profile is only 70mb - should be a lot higher
True. But the noise margin is only 4.5dB so there is possibly a lot of re-transmission going on which will reduce the download speed further.
I saw that as well but profile should be based on connection speed
I'm not sure what %age of sync speed the IPprofile is set to for lines with 3dB margin configured, it might be lower than the usual 96.8%. For DLM retransmission high profiles it is apparently 91% so might be even lower for 3dB profiles.
