Re: Upload speed less than expected.

Ah - found it...
https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@53.5130161,-1.1409577...

It's on the other side of a busy main road, not at all where I was told it was frown

Apologies for that, I was told by the Digital Region people that they would struggle to provide service to us because of that. Thinking about it, maybe that was because that was the nearest place that THEY had a cabinet. I don't know.

A rather sad looking box just a little bit further up the road too:
https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@53.5128171,-1.1412346...

Both seems to have lots of trenches and their little manhole pits around.

That means we are 425m from the cabinet, as the crow flies.

So, 6 months later and the broadband went off several times between 0100 and 0130. When I got service back I did a speedtest and was rather amazed to see it had jumped up quite a lot.

The EE box says
Downstream Rate 69.92 Mbps
Upstream Rate 12.74 Mbps

Here I got a result: My Broadband Speed Test
which is given as an average download speed of 65.76 Mbps and 11.73 Mbps upload.

A great improvement on what we originally got in September. No idea what EE have done, maybe we have dropped lucky on a good IP address - although I still don't see how this makes any significant difference.

Just thought it worth mentioning as we are now getting closer to the upload speed I was given and have surpassed the download speed by some margin smile

IP address will not make any difference to connection speed.

So if your connection speeds are what have increased, then you are looking at changes like lower target noise margin, vectoring or G.INP providing benefits and DLM system has switched them on.

So it is something EE have done, I have not changed anything here and wondered why the (bright) box went off as it did.

I will keep an eye on it. See what happens the next time they change the IP address or whatever it is they do every few days.

In case anyone can tell what has changed, here's the latest statistics:

STATUS
Configured Current
Line Status -- UP
Link Type -- Fast Path
Operation Mode Automatic G.993.2 (VDSL2)
DATA RATE INFORMATION
Upstream 12736 (Kbps)
Downstream 69924 (Kbps)
DEFECT/FAILURE INDICATION
Operation Data Upstream Downstream
Noise Margin 3.9 (dB) 4.8 (dB)
Line Attenuation 0.0 (dB) 19.1 (dB)

Indicator Name Near End Indicator Far End Indicator
Output Power 6.6 (dBm) 12.6 (dBm)
Fast Path FEC Correction 0 351
Interleaved Path FEC Correction -- --
Fast Path CRC Error 0 0
Interleaved Path CRC Error -- --
Loss Of Signal Defect 2 0
Fast Path HEC Error STR 0 8787
Interleaved Path HEC Error -- --
Error Seconds 16022 4204

I can see this is different
Noise Margin 3.9 (dB) 4.8 (dB) (NOW)
Noise Margin 6.0 (dB) 6.2 (dB) (Sept)

How strange... The router just reset again, red light flashing and status page showing no connection. It came back, different IP address, and this:
My Broadband Speed Test

And the noise margin(s) have changed again...

Not EE but the Openreach Dynamic Line Management DLM that is permanently running and will do things like try a lower target noise margin to see if a line will go faster, and if the errors go up it may take the extra speed away again.

Which looking at the two sets of stats is what has happened, i.e. the lower margin gave you 5 Mbps extra download and that has been taken away now.

It has reset a few more times but seems to have stopped now. Ah well, for a fleeting moment... smile
