There seems to be a massive difference between what I am being told should be my broadband speed. After > 10 openreach engineer visits it would appear I now have a somewhat stable line. But according to the openreach people I should be grateful I'm getting over 2mb, according to sky I should be getting between 7mb and 15mb and according to the online checkers the estimated speed generally tends to be 1.5mb - 2mb.
Here is my current stats:
Modem Status Connected
DownStream Connection Speed 3615 kbps
UpStream Connection Speed 988 kbps
System Up Time: 428:46:01
Port Status TxPkts RxPkts Collisions Tx B/s Rx B/s Up Time
WAN PPPoA 55981 54678 0 1565 15687 0:08:42
LAN Up 467112144 417494203 0 0 0 428:46:01
WLAN Up 331279047 342132266 0 0 10318 428:45:40
Broadband Link Downstream Upstream
Connection Speed 3615 kbps 988 kbps
Line Attenuation 60.0 dB 36.8 dB
Noise Margin 2.5 dB 2.9 dB
so my speed is pretty much 3.5mb, I did have over 4mb before Christmas but bad weather + line faults + DLM = back to 2mb then a fight to get the speeds up.
Here is the speed test results:
and as a comparable the results from speedtest.net:
I have to say that my ping results have vastly improved since the last engineer visit they were between 200 and 300 before. Quiet line test is fine.
