I am currently on a full LLU (CPW - Carphone Warehouse) connection on a long line - best estimate is 5.4Km and usually get 1.7 to 2.01Kbps connection. When I was on an IPstream product a couple of years ago it was about half that.
Doing a speed test with PlusNet or BT I get the following estimate
BT Total Broadband BT Total Broadband
The speed prediction we have provided is an estimate, however download speeds can vary and the actual download speed will fall between a range. This is generally within 1-2 Mb higher or lower than your estimated speed quoted. Between 2.5Mb and 6.5Mb
(Estimated speed: 4.0Mb)
Though this is of course a postcode check.
The stats from my router are
ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
Connection Speed 1723 kbps 498 kbps
Line Attenuation 63.5 db 36.5 db
Noise Margin 12.3 db 11.6 db
So presumably they are quoting for a 21CN connection. Is it realistic that I will see an increase of speed over the current LLU connection.
My exchange is SDMDHRS
My router is a Netgear DGN 2000
