What speeds should I get?


[link to this post]
 
Hi guys, you may remember me from this thread: Click here to see it.

So eventually after emailing a few of the head cats at BT, they have given me a priority engineer visit and thanks very much to them. Three engineers didn't show but at least they sent one who was very experienced.

He climbed the pole and he replaced my connection with a new one, he said I was lucky as I got the last line connection from the pole.

Anyway, I was previously syncing at around 3000Kbps and since he's replaced that, I'm getting the following:

DSL Status: Up
DSL Modulation Mode: GDMT
DSL Path Mode: INTERLEAVED
Downstream Rate: 7712 Kbps
Upstream Rate: 448 Kbps
Downstream Margin: 5 db
Upstream Margin: 25 db
Downstream Line Attenuation: 36
Upstream Line Attenuation: 20
Downstream Transmit Power: 0
Upstream Transmit Power: 0

Are these stats good? Although I have a problem... I'm currently getting around click here

Does it take a while for the thing to reset? And I'm getting line bonding put in, if I was at a point able to get fibre, would I be able to get it with bonding?

And do you think I'd be able to get a fibre service from one of BT Wholesale's customers (ISPs) if my speed eventually does reach those of my stats?

Thanks for your help guys, appreciate it.

Do a Broadband Performance Test > http://www.speedtester.bt.com and post the full result.

How many days ago did your router re-sync with exchange for the first time on your new line, was it more than 10 days ago?

Hi there, thanks for your reply.

Unfortunately I contacted BT and they said that there is a fault with their wholesale checker on my line therefore I can't run any tests on it. Whenever I do it, it comes up some error message about the line not being valid. I am with BT retail.

Well the only engineer came out today and put a new line on it so I'm not sure what has happened. It only rose to 7Mbps sync today.

Anything else you can think of?

that's OK. If the speed is persistently slow after a week, including at 7am, then change ISP.

Hi Phil,

Also - is 80ms ping to most servers in the UK normal? My neighbour has it and my both lines have around 70-80ms on average. Is there any way you can get it lower?

Government over here is doing a scheme whereas businesses within a certain speed can get 'BET (Broadband Enabling Technology)' and it basically puts two lines onto one and it doubles the speed.

So FTTC isn't available to you yet?

No well my cabinet and exchange are FTTC enabled although I don't know whether I will be offered FTTC with a speed of 7Mbps on ADSL. What do you think?
