EE Broadband speeds

[link to this post]
Hi everyone, just a post here as people seem very knowledgable on this..

I just joined EE and can allegedly get up to 16Mb, though I am getting wayyyy less. I am still in the 10 day finding the right speed period, though i suspect thats not going to make any difference!

stats are:
Configured Current
Line Status --- SHOWTIME
Link Type --- Fast Path
Operation Mode Automatic G992.3(ADSL2)

Data Rate Information
Stream Type Actual Data Rate
Upstream 1208 (Kbps.)
Downstream 4667 (Kbps.)

Defect/Failure Indication
Operation Data Upstream Downstream
Noise Margin 6.9 dB 6.0 dB
Line Attenuation 11.8 dB 16.5 dB

does this look OK?

also get this off SamKnows:

You are connected to the Battersea telephone exchange.
ADSL is available in your area
Your exchange is also enabled for ADSL Max services
Your exchange is also enabled for ADSL2+ services

According to BT Wholesale, houses at your postcode should be able to support

up to 2Mbps via ADSL
7.5Mbps or greater ADSL connection via ADSL Max
17Mbps or greater via ADSL2+

Standard ADSL RAG results
You can receive 2Mbps ADSL
You can receive 1Mbps ADSL
You can receive 512kbps ADSL
You can receive 256kbps ADSL

You are approximately 745 metres from the exchange. Note that this is the straight line distance - the actual cable length will be longer!

Thanks in advance

Yes it is very slow and in theory 19 Meg should be possible.

It does not look like a filter issue as the upstream is performing well. Suspect that its EE and the odd banding they do, so time to pester them to reset the DLM and allow the line to run faster.

You should be getting over 21 Meg, but you should be running on G992.5(ADSL2+) not G992.3(ADSL2).

Can you post the rest of that stats page showing the error counts, preferably after hard rebooting the router and letting it run for at least a few hours? Together with the Time Connected: from top page.

Are you plugged into hidden test socket behind faceplate? If not, do so.
