Speedtest result less the router stats..


[link to this post]
 
why does a speedtest not come close to what my router says...
ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
Connection Speed 19006 kbps 1142 kbps
Line Attenuation 14.0 dB 8.5 dB
Noise Margin 7.8 dB 9.4 dB

or have i just read it wrong or something?

btw do you think i will get a higher connection speed (still got 5 days of line testing left) or i've already got the fastest speed i can get?

cheers

Connection speed may give 1Mbps more in ideal setups, but I expect you are at the top for Sky.

Try www.speedtest.net . Sometimes the peering between tbb and Sky is poor.

thanks for that info - http://speedtest.net/result/1298639275.png as you can see theres 2mbps difference between the two tests smile.

Well I'm happy with speed I've got, used to be on 1mb. But I wouldn't say no to 1/2 - 1 mb more smile

That's perfect!

The highest possible download speed on ADSLx is about 84% of connection speed, (on an uncontended service which Sky certainly isn't). You are as near that as you could realistically hope for.
