Re: BT old wiring HALVES my Orange Broadband speed!

Wait 12 days for it to stabilise before querying it.

Just got switched from Orange LLU to WBC 3 hours ago. These are my stats immediately upon nighttime reconnection:
ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
Connection Speed 18075 kbps 888 kbps
Line Attenuation 26.0 db 14.2 db
Noise Margin 4.1 db 15.2 db

(Down NM is being tweaked low; will see in daylight what it is normally)
For the moment, these speeds seem OK, but bit disappointed with Up Sync. Will wait and see what the results are like in daylight before comparing with LLU.

Can't find my IP Profile as BT Speedtester still does not run on my line.

I think there's a trend developing for the upload to start at 888 then increase to around 1112 over 1-3 days.

And what will we expect to stabilise?

If the line is swinging around in sync speeds from 18Meg down to 9Meg occassionally, all that will happen is that the line will settle on something around the 8Meg mark as the target noise margin is increased to a point where the line does not drop sync very often. The training period never finds a way to run faster, it is all about finding what is thought to be a stable point.

With ADSL2+ the wiring is even more crucial than with ADSL
