With O2 thinking go to BT they estimate DOUBLE my 2mb speed


[link to this post]
 
Hi
O2 has been fine on 2mb on the top (£21) package, don't feel the traffic shaping. I may have to move to BT (BT VIsion maybe) but when checking on the product it gave me an estimated speed of 4mb. Are the estimates based on a database, not actual? I won't magically double my speed with the same lines and exchange smile

Downstream Att 55db Distance 4km

Are you talking Sync Speed or Throughput? Surprised you are not getting at least 4 Meg Sync on O2?

You could well have a wiring problem, which you will take with you to BT.

No. you are! There is no reason why BT WBC should not equal anybody's LLU. They are both ADSL2+ and WBC now had continuous non-stepped (88% of Sync) IP Profile.

In reply to a post by XRaySpeX:
IP Profile.
Nou. That's why.

Thanks, ermmmm so I should be getting faster even with O2. I am in the master socket so it's outside the problem. I don't want to change, I am trying to get Sky Sports without a dish, no Virgin etc, rented house so changing for BT Vision.

And O2 runs 6dB noise margin profiles so it is swings and rounderbouts.

With BT I get 2 meg/sec more than I did on O2 as BT's DLM has put me on a 2-3 db noise margin.

The continued bashing BT for the sake of it on this site does make it look like a bunch of ISP fanboys live here.

No i'm not

and LLU is still faster due to no IP profiling system..... FACT.

I've went through it my self

i get roughly a meg better throughput with BE/o2 LLU than a BT reseller with the new version of IP profiling system.
