ADSL ISP with best upstream speed?


[link to this post]
 
After having had upstream sync speeds over 1.3mb/s (6dB SNR) for many years with BE, I'm disappointed to find that reduced to under 0.9mb/s now with Sky (Easynet DSLAM). FTTC and cable aren't available to me, so I'm trying to find another ADSL ISP that can reach 1.3mb/s. I'm told that TTB is limited to 1mb/s, and 21CN a bit higher but still under 1.3mb/s. Can existing TTB and 21CN users confirm that? Would switching to Sky's own LLU (by taking SkyTalk) let me reach 1.3mb/s?

According to samknows.com, the following LLU operators are at my exchange: AOL, O2 / Be, C&W, Pipex, Sky / Easynet, TalkTalk (CPW), Tiscali. How many of those still exist? Is it just TalkTalk and Sky?

Thanks for any suggestions.

It's got to be worth asking

friend of mine just joined talktalk business as due to contract he was not able to let them take over the phone so TT residential was not an option and when you go into his accont panel it states the options available for him to connect at are

Mode: Upto 8meg: Auto Mode or G.DMT; Upto 24meg: Auto Mode or ADSL 2+; Upto 24meg with enhanced upstream: Auto Mode or ADSL 2+ Annex M


so im presuming on the business package hes on they support upto 2.5meg upload, hes on the £15 broadband only package with no line rental requiered

According to posts on the Sky forums, that "2.6mbps" is just an anomaly in Sky's system and they don't currently offer Annex M.

It's interesting that at least one person in the linked thread is apparently getting decent upstream SNR/speed on the Easynet DSLAM. It hasn't been possible to get my upstream SNR lower than 8.5dB so far, but perhaps Sky have tweaked things in the last week. I'll have to ask them again.

Sadly tis true, though I only sync upload at 0.7 which is rather annoying as like you, with BE I got the full 1.3 up no problems. I could pay more for TTB's Annex M but I just put up with it grudgingly
