Visit http://www.kitz.co.uk/adsl/frogstats.php select your modem/router and post the ADSL stats or feed them into http://www.farina1.com/adsl and you will get estimates as to what the line is capable of, based on the actual data.

Ideal world where everything is perfect I would expect 20000Kbps

If your stats are with the modem on the end of an extension cable etc, then not bad really.

Always worth checking what you get using the test socket on the master socket, i.e. which removes any influence from your in house wiring.

Plusnet is not LLU, and in fact ADSL Max is now dead anyway. It has been replaced by IPSC on non 21CN WBC exchanges, and WBC on WBC-enabled ones.

IPSC is very like ADSL Max, with up to 8Mbps. WBC is up to 24Mbps like most LLU.

If you check your exchange through this link and post the URL of the result, we can tell you which you will get.

The test socket is inside the master socket, and can make a big difference if there is anything the matter with the wiring in your house. See the socket on the wall at the back in this pic.

Using the samknows exhange checker it says that on our local exchange BT still uses the old ADSL Max, not IPSC. Fortunately, we also have the CPW LLU.

Just curious: What is IPSC anyway? Never heard about it before.

That will just be that samknows has left the title unchanged, as from the user point of view there is no technical difference. Big difference at the ISP end though, and all the way through the BT backhaul to get there.
