I have been advised in this post: http://forums.thinkbroadband.com/btsupplier/f/418185...
That my phone line is seriously under performing, here are my current line stats:
Downstream Rate 8128 kbps
Upstream Rate 448 kbps
Downstream Margin 8.7 dB
Upstream Margin 28.0 dB
Downstream Line Attenuation 20.6 dB
Upstream Line Attenuation 11.0 dB
Downstream Transmit Power 19.9 dB
Upstream Transmit Power 12.4 dB
My connection is generally very stable, regularly getting just over 6mbit on a speed test. I have a single phone socket with no extensions, though the phone line does go through a surge protector. I have an NTE5 socket with the BT logo and the piper man on it, no bell wire is connected.
Any thoughts or comments?
