I was upgraded by BT at the beginning of May and after the ten day training period I was only achieving the max, 6Mbps, that I was getting before the upgrade.

Since then I've seen it increase to 8Mbps and now its settled at 10Mbps and who knows may even get better. So what I'm saying is give it time and you may see an improvement.

Download speedachieved during the test was - 11688 Kbps
For your connection, the acceptable range of speedsis 4000-21000 Kbps.
Additional Information:
Your DSL Connection Rate :12551 Kbps(DOWN-STREAM), 1176 Kbps(UP-STREAM)
IP Profile for your line is - 11073 Kbps
The throughput of Best Efforts (BE) classes achieved during the test is - 14.97:23.02:62.02 (SBE:NBE:PBE)
These figures represent the ratio while sententiously passing Sub BE, Normal BE and Priority BE marked traffic.

The results of this test will vary depending on the way your ISP has decided to use these traffic classes.

It changes after the training period, because that first 10 days is not about training your line to a fixed speed, the training goes on every time the modem connects.

That is the result from the BT speedtester, and looks perfectly fine.

What Robertos asked for was the actual sync, attenuation and noise margins from your ADSL hardware.

Download speed of 11688 Kbps is false as it's higher than IP Profile of 11073 Kbps.

That seems to be a "feature" of the new DLM. I get the feeling the quoted IP profile is just a percentage of sync, (which we know it is but the percentage for different users seems to be different), but that there isn't a download limit imposed because of it.

In other words, maybe the new IP Profile is simply information as to the most you can expect, rather than being a cap.

makes sense. You'll never actually get to use the full sync due to overheads, simply put some bandwidth is used to organise the data being sent and received.
