QUERY ON BEING UPCAPPED - 10 DAY STABILIZATION PERIOD?


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

I've been on orange with 2 meg service which has been fine for the last few years but I decided to see if I could get more speed. They said they would upcap me and I should get about 14meg.

The 10 day stabilization period started a couple of days ago but I've seen no change at all (better or worse), could anyone tell me if I should see some difference??

Cheers

Mike

Post your Router Stats and don't shout!

And what is your exchange?

Hi,

I'm on the Balham London exchange, it looks like it should be great and I'm 0.7 miles away from it.

It won't be great unless your Router Stats confirm you are.

I'm at work but can check my Router stats later, what do I need to check?

Orange told me to use my internet a lot as it'll get me a better connection so I'm been doing some big downloads.

Lol - more likely they meant leave it switched on so the systems can profile it. Using it does nothing to help make it run faster.

If anything they will slow you down under fair usage. This will no way speed your connection up. We need router statistics

It;s terribly slow; should be syncing @ about 19 Meg. You sure you not still on 2 Meg Fixed?

Find your actual Mode using TELNET from: http://www.kitz.co.uk/routers/netgeardg834_interleav...
