Re: Strange speed increase


[re: Cottee55] [link to this post]
 
Mine now may be stuck - sync'd at 33723 but not reaching attainable rate which has gone up a little to 39676~ (this evening), was lower before.

My original DS estimate was 14.6, revised to 23.1 - maybe 17a as mentioned.

Not good if it's stuck now though, as I had an IP profile of 36632 before, so going the wrong way!

Will see how it goes for a week or so, and ask about getting it unstuck. Depends what they did to the cab.

In reply to a post by Cottee55:
What ever has happened my ip profile is now stuck at 32339, so maybe they have upgraded something in the cab or the exchange And my line must of kept resyncing. At the best I could download at 2.8 but now I'm getting 4.2 so really happy with what ever they have done.

17a is now enabled on my line and we gained about 6Mbit extra

Really ? How are you getting that data ?

Zarjaz, they are pulling it from the cracked firmware flashed into the OR Modem and logging in via Telnet/Putty.

It started off, way back when, at something like 16Mbit. Then after we got it installed the estimate went up to 27Mbit (the speed we got when the engineer installed it)

Cheers Orly,

How stable does it seem using profile 17a & what are your actual download speeds like compared to 8c?

We started off at 27Mbit as mentioned and it gradually dropped down to 23.5Mbit which was the "stable" speed. Upload was 8Mbit.

On 17a it's up to 29Mbit but the upload has dipped to 6Mbit. The estimate for upload is now 11Mbit though so it's a bit strange.

The thing being that although you see a profile change, I have seen nowt using an 'official' tester. I just wonder if it's some other tweak which is causing the reported changes.

to be fair, I have only seen the 17a profile change on longer lines and people with low connections,
