OK, that's not limiting you then - it hasn't been set yet, it should eventually settle to just below your IP profile, which is just under 97% of your sync speed.

Before all that he also tried plugging the OR modem straight into my existing ADSL extension which sync'd at 29/9 on his test socket kit, which as i suspected would be pretty bad as the extension is using cheap phone cable.


Just shows why it is important that an engineer visits the premises. Sadly most ISPs now do self-install, so they just ship a router to you and you plug it in... Needless to say I am sure plenty of people are getting much slower speeds than they could be achieving due to using existing extensions.

Important to note is that this extension would have also significantly slowed down your old ADSL service, which you put up with for years.

Indeed! i only realised that up until recently, however i did try a long cat5 cable in its place while i was waiting for the fibre install date and it only made a small difference to the ADSL sync speeds; it went up a few hundred kbps from 4.5mbps to ~4.8mbps. So i don't think my internal copper is in particularly good nick, well average at best.

It may have taken time to fully gain the benefits, ie your noise margin reducing and the sync increasing... Usually a few weeks for DLM to kick in once the line improves.

Yep, the major FTTC ISPs apart from PlusNet.

There's a tonne of other smaller ISPs but the vast majority of customers are covered by BT, Sky, TT and PlusNet (with BT, Sky and TT having the lions share of that).

I would say a high percentage of users visiting these forums do so to avoid those three. And three it is, despite their size.

You said "most" ISPs, so how about the popular smaller ones here (alphabetically) - AAISP; aquiss; IDNet; vivaciti; Xilo/uno; Zen. Then the 100+ others like Claranet.

OK - I did not put my point across perfectly.

If you look at the UK the vast majority of people who have FTTC will be with Sky, BT or TalkTalk. The majority of people will experience a self install.

"Most ISPs" was misleading.
