using http://www.speedtester.bt.com I get the following:
Max acheivable speed 38717 down and 10000 up.
test shows 32246 down and 7992 up...then I do speedtest.net and get 2300 down and 6009 up
this all sounds OK...BUT why does speedtest.net show poor results and videos are not streaming OK. I have a 'download meter on Firefox and this shows about 800 max ?
That BT test is fine. Which means it is nothing to do with your end or the exchange. So what you were told about the exchange enablement was rubbish. It is indeed the expected minimum within the BT Wholesale system, not the maximum, and you just hit 32Mbps.
It looks as though BT Broadband have set things up to bypass their normal routers when a BT speed test is done. Everything else you do goes through their normal routers, and to me it looks like simple congestion at the BT end.
