I've been with IDNet for a few years now without problem on the old 8mb ADSL package. My exhchange recently got upgraded to ADSL2+ so I upgraded my package with IDNet to the 24meg Pro package.
It went live yesterday afternoon and shortly after I did a quick speedtest that showed almost 11Mbps download speed. Some facts; I am less than 400 metres from my exchange. The line quality is very good, so much in fact that that when I was on the 8meg service a BT engineer had to throttle my speed down a touch at the exchange due to a line sync in excess of 8meg (dont ask me to explain it any more than that because I can't!).
So, I am expecting some pretty good results on the 24meg service. Now I understand my adsl is currently in 'training mode' that lasts for 10 days, but seriously, I am getting less 0.5Mbps on a theoretical 24meg connection. Is this right? Support have told me not to worry and let the training mode do its thing but I don't know, this doesn't seem right to me being so low when my router is currently line sync'd at 18Mbps. Its been less than half a meg all day. I guess I'm after a little reassurance. Has anyone else experienced this on upgrade or new provider? How long is this 0.5Mbps (or very poor) download speed going to last? How frequently is this going to change? Or is there perhaps a problem? Any thoughts or experiences shared would be appreciated.
