What speed?


[link to this post]
 
My router is connected at 6335kbps on 21CN.

What download speed should I be hitting? I'm seeing around 650KB/s on most downloads.

Is this about spot on?

8 * 650KB/sec = 5200 Kbps

6335 *.882 = 5587Kbps for the IP Profile, so pretty darn close.

Yes, about 83% of Sync.

What are your router stats & IP Profile?

1999: Freeserve 48K Dial-Up => 2005: Wanadoo 1 Meg BB => 2007: Orange 2 Meg BB => 2008: Orange 8 Meg LLU => 2010: Orange 16 Meg LLU => 2011: Orange 19 Meg WBC

Does ADSL2 have profiles? I thought it just ran at 80% of the line speed?

And Thanks MrS

Nowt to do with ADSL2+ itself. It's the BT Profiling system and you said you were on 21CN not LLU. Get it from http://www.speedtester.bt.com/

Should match the calculation I did earlier, but no sign that it is stuck based on what you posted all.

In short, what is the worry you have?

It wasn't really a worry it was just a question to make sure I was getting the right speed. I'll check my profile out later on the bt speedtest.
