Hi,

I'm signed up to 4mbit broadband and am getting these results:

Is there anything I can do?

Thanks for any help you can give me,

What are the connection stats from the router?

That looks like the ISP has put you onto a fixed speed half Meg service.

Do o2 offer their full LLU range at your exchange, or is this O2 Access product?

The estimate fromhttp://www.coolwebhome.co.uk/calc/calculator.php is
Normal speed range at 58dB attenuation is 1850Kbps to 3000Kbps

Given your very good noise margin, if the ISP allow the connection to run at higher speeds there is no reason to suspect that a 3 Meg connection, and maybe 4 Meg is possible.

Thanks so much for replying, it is O2 access as I believe ! I tried to get LLU a while ago but the exchange could not do it. If I ring up o2 and talk tot them and tell them to take me off the 1/2 a meg service would this help?

O2 customer services will not help you unless you have the O2 supplied modem/router connected.

Have you tried that?

Just talked with them :

- I am on the O2 access package
- The maximum I can get is 2 mbit because of the line/distance from exchange
- getting 0.6.mb d/l
- Package is 8mbit maximum
- Cant do LLU on my exchange
- Sending new microfilters

:/ They say its just to do where I am located frown

Can't see a different router helping in this case

I am lost, you say 0.6 Mbps download, but posted 576 as the connection speed earlier. Has something changed?

Sending new microfilters, as much use as sending you a bag of Maltesers, the noise margins you posted indicate that is not the issue, and that O2 has probably just ordered a 0.5 Meg service.

If you were really on the up to 8 Mbps Max service one would be expected to be see 3 to 4 Meg for your line, and an upstream of 448 Kbps.
