Re: Worth a punt?


[re: RobertoS] [link to this post]
 
Well possibly you can tell me why B.T. now estimate my line speed at 8mb when their estimation was always 12mb, which I got and more. What i am trying to say, is that this seems to point to some B.T. restriction rather than being the fault of PN for a change, though I should have known better than to post my thoughts on any forum. One thing is for sure, I was better off on the Post Office totally unlimited 8mb service for near enough £10 pm less.

I expect I am still wrong about the 8mb rating!

BT estimates have always been subject to change. Mine has been all over the place over the years, between 256k and 3Mb to its current 1Mb. Most of them bear little relation to reality.

I like many others find the speeds are consistently fast. I'm on a 20CN exchange and have a consistent 8128 sync. I also have a SanKnows monitoring box - it consistently shows over 6M download speeds.

Well I am on ADSL2+ and on the up to 20Mb PN service. But I have just noticed the service status entries on my Plusnet page state that my account is due to be upgraded to 21C Network status by midnight on the 1st of November. Does this explain the system thinking my line is only capable of 8Mb, when it used to state 12Mb which I got and more.

Given the title line of that section, which comes from the BT database which I agree sounds strange, I don't find the OfCom-required statement of your expected speed, which you circled, at all surprising.

Re your later post of the BT estimate page, did it used to say higher for ADSL2+, because it still says it could be up to 12.5Mbps. Or are you just going from what you used to get?

"I don't find the OfCom-required statement of your expected speed, which you circled, at all surprising."
Neither do I, as we all know the figures given seem to be random, as the 'up to 21,000kbps' as the upper acceptable limit given by BT speedtester, is totally silly on a line that is capable of nothing like that.
What I am questioning, is that the new lowered expected speed of 8Mb is around what I now get, whereas when they expected 12000kbps I was getting 13,000kbps plus on Plusnet for the first few weeks. For once I am not blaming PN, as every time they execute a snr reset, or I do a 10 day router restart, things are back up again, but just for a day. Not to worry, as I can do all I want with the 8Mb PO service I used to have.

How about some router stats? From your earlier posts it looks as though you are on ADSL(1), hence 8Mbps top.

These taken a few minutes ago. Things are a little slower after the service interruptions over the last day. Also pings now 40 to 50ms instead of around 18.

All this stuff about 8Mb estimates is irrelevant. You are on ADSL2+, you are syncing at 14747k, your IP profile should be around 12977k so you should be getting maximum download speeds of probably around 12Mb, unless Plusnet has your profile set to a lower figure for some reason (check at https://portal.plus.net/my.html?action=data_transfer... under Current line speed).
