FTTC Speed Test


[link to this post]
 
Have literally just been migrated to FTTC from Zen.

I'd like to do a speed test but the speedtester.bt.com site seems unable to validate my user it based on the phone number I have entered. I figure this is just the internal systems updating though so no biggie.

However, the open reach guy says I have synch'd at 39,992 with an upload of 1,900. Yet - all the speed tests I have done, including this sites, indicates a max speed of 24Mbit down and 1.7 up.

Using the test files from fuller.zen.co.uk it is downloading at 2.45 megabytes a second.

Is this correct for almost a full synch? Wonder what my IP Profile is set to? Any other ways to find out other than bt speedtester?

Thanks,

Phil.

Was the speedtest done wired, wireless or homeplugs? At a sync of 39992 I would guess that you would have a profile of 38717 down. I Could not use the BT speedtest the first day I was connected to Infinity, so you are probably correct in that it is the system updating.

BT -> Zen -> F2S -> Bulldog -> Be* -> BT Infinity

It was wired, literally just after the engineer left and I had configured the router smile

Ah! You are correct!

IP Profile for your line is - 38717 Kbps smile

Pulling 27Mbit at the moment via speedtester.bt.com - which is working now smile probably could go faster but allowing for time of day and wifi ..

Just tried speedtest.net ..
