Sky fibre BB - only 25mb?


[link to this post]
 
Hi

Had Sky fibre BB installed today (previously had Sky BB Unlimited running at about 6mb before) and it's gone up to 25.91mb (upload is 1.83mb) Is there any way to get this up to 40mb?

Thanks!

There is a 2-day DLM period. Don't mess with the connection to try to improve things.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,website and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet Extra Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 57.4/14.6Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

Should I leave the connection on constantly during this period?

How about the computer?

Thanks

I waited about 5-7 days and rebooted my router, and the BT box. Then I had 40/10..

You can turn the computer off, no worries. The router could also be turned off, but I would leave it on. The modem is the one to keep on until after midnight of the day after the first connection.

You've already got 40 Meg. It's your throughput that's suffering.

Are you measuring it wired or wireless? If the latter, there's your answer.

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

Both.

D/L speed on a wired desktop (powerline) is about 2.5-3.0mb/sec using this website's test files. Using my wifi (G) laptop it's 1.0mb/sec approx.

Thanks

Your last two posts look as though the first is in MegaBytes (MBps) and the second one is in Megabits (Mbps). Ther are 8 Megabits in a MegaByte. Not all testers report in the same way. (The capital or small "B" matters.
