Why 307


[link to this post]
 
I had an Openreach WBC FTTP 330/50 connection installed at the beginning of November, during the last month I have performed many speeds tests both wired and wireless, but the fastest I have ever managed in off-peak times is 307 Mbps. My original estimate from BT Retail was 313 Mbps, so it's not like there is any issues, but I wonder why it's not the full 330 on a FTTP connection?

What factors (apart from network congestion) actually lead to a FTTP connection not running at full speed?

Out of interest, does the upstream always give a tad over 50 ?

Nope, it's pretty much 49 all the time

330 Mb/s will be the Ďsyncí speed, after overheads you will get around 310 Mb/s. If youíre getting in excess of 300 Mb/s in Speedtests youíve got nothing to worry about smile

Somewhat odd, all those Iíve tested get a shade over the upload.

I totally agree, just did a few tests as I do now and then and yes its about those speeds.

My Broadband Speed Test

[IPv6]

Speed tests were done while others here were using the internet like watching Twitch or YouTube etc.

Those speeds are at that speed 24 / 7

What was strange was when we were on Infinity 4 (300:30) we did see the odd faster speed, however the average speed was all over the place, where as with Ultrafast 2 Plus we get a stable max speed.

I do, I get about 300 to 309Mbps downstream and around 52 to 53Mbps upstream.

I did try with Linksys router and that did go just over 50, but not with the BT Smarthub
