I'm trying to see if I can increase the speed of my FTTC line.
Just joined Pusnet from BT, still using BT modem.
My moden is about 4m from the phone connection. I replaced the engineer installed cable (looks a bit ropey) with a pre-terminated cable.
I was getting 32M down /7.2M up,
An hour after connection of the new cable the wholesale tester gave:
"Download speed achieved during the test was - 37.45 Mbps
For your connection, the acceptable range of speedsis 23.38 Mbps-33.4 Mbps .
IP Profile for your line is - 33.4 Mbps
Upload speed achieved during the test was - 7.29Mbps
Upstream Rate IP profile on your line is - 20 Mbps"
Speedtest.net gives a similar high download reading of 37.6/7.51Mb/s
First thing to note is that I'm getting a higher download speed than the profile. Does this mean that the speed is likely to increase given time?
I don't want to leave it there too long, as it's liable to be tripped over unlike the original cable.
Thanks in advance.
