I think that, to a certain extent, he has a right to be aggrieved - especially when a certain poster on this thread appears to ignore the data being posted.

If that's me, I still cannot see the throughput speeds reported by the BT speed test, where he posted everything but those, and then berated me when I asked for them.

Quite how one can ignore something which doesn't exist baffles me. The relevance of the sync speed and profile without them is nil in this case, for the reasons I explained in detail to the poster.

Currently on a fibre extra pro connection connected at 37mb down and 8 up.

Customer support has been there when i needed them and have always been very helpful.

Dispite being told otherwise, enabling SRA within the Billion router seems to have had the desired effect. There have been three alterations to my sync and line-speed today, all in the upward direction. None of the resets have had a negative effect on my IP Profile, which now stands at 13,763kbps with a line speed of 15,601kbps, noise margin 3.1db. I have taken three consecutive speedtests this afternoon.

And then of course there is the B.T. speedtest, which despite agreeing with all my router figures, still refuses to part with more than the 7Mb, which was where I was originally pointing the finger.

It is baffling, isn't it.

An example of the BT Performance Speedtester Test Results page is given below. Could you point out where it shows the download and upload "throughput speeds".

See latest post from m0aur where he does link to a BT speed test result showing both of these. It is inexplicably lower than other speed tests but, unless it affects his use of the service, I don't see that it matters.

Does Plusnet support SRA for all customers' connections where it is appropriate and if so for how long has it been available?
« Reply #1 on Today at 16:51:36 »
Hi Apprentice,

Waiting for an answer from Dave, our current guru, so will update when he confirms. As far as we know though, no we don't.

I guess this relates to a thread on TBB? Wink

Dave's just confirmed that it isn't supported by BT Wholesale, so it doesn't look likely.

I'm sure I tried to use his link in my post, Kevin. But which link are you talking about and where does it show "throughput" speeds?

I was talking about this link:

I do hope this isn't some pedantry about the word "speed" appearing rather than "throughput".

Well I never - why did the link work in your post and not in mine? frown

Better ask Bob(RobertoS) about the difference between throughput and speed.

Anyway, getting back to the OP's question, if you want a "reliable" (as per the sample size) set of data, you need to select BT, O2, Plusnet, Talktalk, Sky and Virgin Media, in the TBB broadband comparison bar charts.
Interestingly, O2 comes out ahead of Plusnet across the three criteria.
