ADSL2+ - how do I know?


[link to this post]
 
Hi all

Sorry for the stupid question but my exchange has just been upgraded and I have asked my ISP (plusnet) to move me to ADSL2+. They said it will take up to two weeks but how will I know? Do I just keep an eye out for a better sync speed?

I have a Netgear DG834G v1 router and can't see anything in the web interface which would say!

All help appreciated,

John

Clearest indication of a move will be the upstream shifting from 448Kbps to up to 1 Mbps

Thanks Andrew but I thought Plusnet (and others?) capped the ADSL2+ upload speed to keep it at that anyway?

I believe that your line attenuation will have changed from its previous value (mine went up from 46db on ADSL Max to 48.5db on ADSL2+).

I'm with Vivaciti and my upload speed is 1020 kbps on ADSL2+.

GPRS > 3G > Wanadoo 1MB 2GB/month > Zen Internet 3MB 50GB/month > Vivaciti 5MB 100GB/month

Initially if its a move from 20CN to 21CN then they cap at old ADSL speeds, but once on the proper 21CN ADSL2+ profiles upstream does improve

Interesting post from goldenadsl.

The new DLM from BTW often drops it to 3dB anyway after a while, and he could tweak it to 2dB from 6dB with DMT anyway so didn't need to ask for a manual lower setting.

So did I. There was some stuff about it recently, with several customers having to ask for it to be uncapped. But from the post Apprentice links to, perhaps they have changed the policy.

The downstream should go up though anyway, on shortish line.
