Network Upgrade = Lower speeds


[link to this post]
 
Hi Folks,

Anybody out there had their exchange upgraded to ADSL2+(21cn) and found their speeds have got slower. Our exchange was done a few days ago and my connection has dropped by 1MB. The other issue is that although I am connected to the exchange at (allegedlly) 5086kbps the internet takes forever on initial opening. Before the upgrade the sync speed was 5890-6000 kbps on average.
I have a new DGND 3700 router and have replaced wall socket and adsl v1 face plate but no difference.The noise level is 5.9-6.3 DB so i can only assume the speed,s not going to get any better. Is this the norm or should I be giving off at BT ?

You should switch to ADSL2 and see if that helps.

Tried both 2 and 2+. Ended up just leaving it on auto to see if it would choose the best.

Was 2 faster than 2+ ?

3000Kbps to 5150Kbps is the expected sync range for the attenuation, so if you used to get a 6Meg sync that was pretty amazing.

Was the old service just 21CN IPstream, or Orange ADSL2+?

Just a BT up to 8mb connection. Line etc replaced 2 years ago due to old lines (overhead) causing severe telephone and broadband problems. I (perhaps foolishly ) assumed that on the adsl2+ at a distance of 2.8km from the exchange the improvement should have been seen in upload and download speeds.(upload has doubled).

I have to be honest and say that i did'nt note down the speeds,but there wasn't any significant difference.

Try ADSL2 again, and also note the attenuation. (Post the stats in fact smile).

Please also run a BT speed test and post the results, as that gives extra information.
