I've been with o2 LLU for quite some time now, but thinking of switching to an bras profile provider - if that is the correct term these days.
From what i remember from my non LLU days before o2, i had quite bad speeds and it was very sensitive to bad syncs. I understand BT have evolved the profiling system a bit since then.
So my question is about sync speeds and throughput. After some time cleaning up wiring around the house and at the master socket, with a Billion router and an SNR tweak down to 3dB i currently achieve a sync of 16873Kbps. Very happy with that.
If i run a speedtest i achieve pretty much exactly 14Mbps. Quite a bit down from the actual sync speed. Is this speed drop to be expected on LLU connections?
My bras profile will be funnily enough 14Mbps assuming i get the same sync speeds (i hope) when i swicth provider. But, will my speedtests on my 14Mbps profile also be around 2.8Mbps lower than the profile.
Is the difference between sync and speedtest going to be the same on LLU and non LLU (i.e. is the difference in speed something attributed to my local machine and wifi network perhaps).
If so, it seems i will be much better off speed wise sticking with a LLU provider unless sky is really bad when it migrates.
