I am on AOL broadband.
The speed has been slowly dropping for a couple of months now. It used to average at 8Mbps (the advertised speed) but now is never more than 2Mbps. It's all rather odd. I got a new modem router this month and replaced all of the cables. The same speeds are reported by the new modem router.
AOL is the only operator at my local exchange which has its own equipment; the rest use BT.
You will find my current settings below.
ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
Connection Speed 2515 kbps 423 kbps
Line Attenuation 33.5 db 15.9 db
Noise Margin 11.8 db 11.5 db
I would like advice on improving the connection speed or how to enquire about this problem at AOL without being told a load of nonsense about ethernet cables.
