Hi all, im new here so bear with me.
Im with Orange for my broadband and have recently found out that my neighbours broadband averages around 7mbps. However mine is around 1.7mbps. Granted they are with BT but it all comes down the same line and id expect a small difference but not 5mbps. So I called Orange and they asked me to do a speed check using speedtester.bt. which I did after plugging my filter into the BT port coming into the house. (shows around 1.7mbps via the extension line upstairs so it makes hardly any difference in my speed anyway)
So I ran the speedtester and it came back showing and I quote:
"your configured download throughput speed for this service is 2000kbps"
On the second page that came up with the results I got this
"for your connection the acceptable range of speeds is 400-2000kbps"
"Your DSL connection rate: 8096kbps (downstream), 448kbps (upstream)"
"IP Profile for your line is 2000kbps"
So does that mean my line only supports 2mb, does my router only support 2mb (Orange Livebox) or is my line restricted somehow to only receive 2mb?
Whats the "Your DSL connection rate: 8096kbps" mean? Id say it meant the line will support up to 8mb? So why arent I able to get that?
One last note, according to BT, the line supports between 5.5 and 12.5mbps.
Just checked on speedtest.net and its got 2.48mbps. Im baffled
Thanks in advance
