Glad to see you have now transferred and are getting ADSL2+ speeds, but not yet quite up to speed. Give it time and it should get at or near 24 Meg.

I think we were fairly sure there is a non-ISP-related problem with something, and I at least wondered if it was the line card he was connected to.

The thing is we can't be sure he isn't still on the same card.

I have strong doubts that things will improve.

I note that his attenuations are now in proportion.

Well what can we do except wait for the training period to complete and check the stats then?

I note that Down has not risen by 3 dB. as is usual, while Up has decreased by 3 dB. Is that of significance? Could just be short line or Tesco router, tho' he got similar from a BT Home Hub on Tesco connection.

Too tired to check back. I thought Tesco stats were showing 6dB/6dB attenuation?

Sleep time for me.

Yes, using Tesco router (or with BT Hub 5.0dB up, 7.0dB down).
Therefore Delta Attenuation ~= -3 dB up, 0 dB down.

One 'anomaly' I have noticed is that as MrSaffron correctly pointed out my IP Profile should be 88.2% of my sync speed, however according to the BTW Speed Tester my IPP is 14.18Mbps crazy

And the sync speed at the precise time you found out that IP Profile setting?

Still the speedtest.net result is reasonable for that IP Profile. Speedtests also incur other overheads that are part of your PC/AV software/firewall/router/network/internet variables.

The sync speed hasn't changed since it was activated yesterday, just interesting as 14.18 isn't 88.2% of 15.7 so wondering where BTW got that figure from

13.85Mbps x 1024 = 14182Kbps - could be something to do with that smile
