I recently moved from Orange broadband (ADSL Max) where I was getting a reliable 7mb as I live very close to the exchange, to Virgin Media (WBC).
All line checkers advised that I could get between 13-19mb with an average line speed of 17mb.
However whilst the router syncs at a high rate and my snr is very low the IP Profile has never gone up from 6.5mb. I am now just out of the 10 day training period and as far as I can tell it appears to be 'stuck'. Ive included my speedtest results as well as my router stats.
Can anyone suggest why the IP Profile has never moved and why its so low compared to the speeds I should be getting? As a side note, the upload speed HAS increased and was a lot lower on ADSL Max.
ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
Connection Speed 23004 kbps 1253 kbps
Line Attenuation 17.0 db 9.5 db
Noise Margin 2.8 db 6.0 db
BT Speedtester Results:
Download speedachieved during the test was - 2.69 Mbps
For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 2 Mbps-7.15 Mbps.
IP Profile for your line is - 6.5 Mbps
Upload speed achieved during the test was - 1.15Mbps
Upstream Rate IP profile on your line is - 832 Kbps
Usually the download speed is a lot higher but its peak time. As a side note the upstream HAS increased since switching to WBC.
Can anyone make any suggestions?
PS: Ignore my signature I havent updated it in years!
Downstream: 1860 Kbps (232.5 KB/sec) 2008 Kbps (inc. overheads)
Upstream: 245 Kbps (30.6 KB/sec) 264 Kbps (inc. overheads)
