126.3/11.65 It seems spot on and compares almost exactly with speedtest.net and TBB's.

This is hybrid fibre/coax rather than BTs hybrid fibre/copper.

Virgin Media: 120mb/12Mb , land line, mobiles x2, TV - VIP HD box + TIVO 1Tb box.

In reply to a post by jelv:
Plusnet have apparently fixed their speed tester (the warnings that it isn't working properly have been removed).

The latter shouldn't be taken as an indication of the former because AFAIK we've done nothing with the speedtest boxes. The message was probably inadvertently removed when the offer was updated.

Having said that the results at the moment do look pretty consistent with other testing tools shocked

Yep, that's is correct. Virgin Media put overhead 133Meg but getting throughput speed of 126Meg but their advert is 120Meg. Well above ofcom up to 120Meg.

BT cannot do 80Meg throughput because of percent of ip profile on the line and depend how far away from cabinet to property line (copper).

Who Down Up
TBB: 71.3 13.7
ST 73.01 18.11
MBS 73.123 17.824 <<

Currently on PlusNet FttC (3-4 weeks post install).

If anything, I've been finding the TBB Upload test slightly out of late compared to other tools and "real world" performance seen.

Would love to tell you my sync speed but haven't yet worked out how to query the BT Router via the Plusnet Thompson thingy.

Am probably about 70-90 meters from our shiny new green cab on Turgis Green exchange in good old rural Bramley. Suffered 10 years of 2meg up / 250k down and now as happy as Larry.

The modem needs to be flashed by asbokid's unlocked firmware. I'm not sure whether a fully tested version is yet available since the Openreach update of theirs.

You can get a very close estimate of your downstream sync by running the BT Performance Test, (ignore the silly entries on the list of things to do first), then at the bottom of the results page click Further diagnostics. In the downstream results box you will see the IP Profile. Divide that by 0.9679.
