FTTC speeds similar to ADSL2+ speeds


[link to this post]
 
My FTTC connection (though still technically in "training"), syncs at 38717, 100-150m from the cab approx.

It seems to consistently return results within the 20-24 Mbps range. Early morning or between 5.30-6pm it semms to climb into the high 30's.

Martin at Aquiss believes that the BT node I am connected to at Milton Keynes is one of the busiest. That could point to why the speed increases at the afternoon rush hour, then quickly falls back again in the early evening.

Either way my speed is a dramatic improvement, which if it remains stable is excellent news.

But I just wondered if subscribers on other nodes saw different results, or were also getting ADSL2+ similar results?

I have setup a shared monitor (that is if the router has now stopped blocking the ping requests) but I'm not sure how others can view it, so be my guest and tell me what you think of the connection. smile

Milton Keynes hand-over is running at 40% right now (just a few minutes after your above tests) therefore the speeds your reporting appear down to local congestion (Cabinet or Exchange) or thinkbroadband's tester is doing odd things.

There is no reason why you would not be getting full speeds right now which according to the test you have done on our tester appears to match (ie: 37Mbps).

What does the BT speedtester right now?

> Download speed achieved during the test was - 32143 Kbps

For your connection, the acceptable range of speedsis 12000-38717 Kbps .
Additional Information:
IP Profile for your line is -38717 Kbps

2. Upstream Test: -provides background information.

Upload Speed

Not complaining Martin, just getting a feel for how it works. smile

Is the handover the Entanet bit or the BT bit? I can see the Entanet bit on my iPhone and see it drop when 5pm comes along!

In summary, our tester and BT's official tester match very close (ie: your getting FTTC speeds in the 30Mbps+ area) yet thinkbroadband's tester is giving you low results at the same time.

That would appear to me to show a problem with the TBB tester. Why i'm not sure.

In reply to a post by mrnelster:

I'm referring the handover as the BT to Entanet bit at Milton Keynes.

When you say you see a drop, what sort of drop are you seeing? If you feel this is service impacting please do raise a support case so that we can monitor your line in far more detail.
