OK you've lost me now... My line has the same figures as yours. What's not normal about it? IP profile is always lower than the sync isn't it?

And speed is always lower than the IP Profile. Often considerably so.

Aquiss have clarified your confusion.

I am using BT Broadband as ISP.......

can anyone suggest somewhere to download a file from that might go at a reliable high speed?

I have tried download sites and share sites and they are disappointingly slow.

My real beef on this is that upload is constanly fast now...to bt vault it show upload of 850-900 but same file back down is slower...!

You appear to be mixing up min sync speeds, with "Assured Rates", something that i notice a few ISPs reps are doing also wink

The Assured Rate is 12Mbps
That's the second time you've posted this. Do you have a link or have you made it up?

What I was told today is that BT claim your minimum DOWNLOAD speed is 15Mb (not sync speed!). I might have been told the wrong figure today,but I'm not mixing up sync and throughput as I'm perfectly aware of the difference between download/throughput and sync speed.

"BT has said that customers can expect an average of around 30Mb and a minimum DOWNLOAD speed of 15Mb on its new Infinity packages." - and that's also what I was told today. They never mentioned sync speed. Source: http://www.broadbandchoices.co.uk/bt-infinity-review...

I was told by BT Openreach today in person. But a simple google shows it's also here:
http://www.broadbandchoices.co.uk/bt-infinity-review...

I don't know why everyone's getting so worked up and hostile over the difference between download and sync speed. They're almost the same to within 10% (assuming you're using BT's tester). This guy is getting 1.6Mb when he's expecting 40! A difference of that magnitude clearly has NOTHING to do with the IP network overhead, so he clearly has another problem.

Or are you really trying to say that getting 1.6Mb throughput on a line likely to be syncing at 40Mb is normal?!

OK I apologise, I meant "download" in each case (as their tester doesn't (can't?) measure your sync).
