Just run another test after a lengthy conversation with my ISP.
Image

I have been informed that the maximum my line can handle it 512kbps. On this basis, the 370kbps I'm actually getting isn't too bad, although I don't see why I should be charged the same price for "upto" 8 MEG as someone else who can actually get 8 MEG. Damn disgrace.

They've told me to run some additional tests with http://www.speedtester.bt.com 3 times per day for the next week, and call them back. Not sure if I have to record the results or if they're logged somewhere the ISP can access.
The results were :
Download Speed Achieved : 302kbps
DSL Connection Rate : 928kbps (DOWN STREAM) & 448kbps (UP STREAM)
IP Profile for line is 350kbps.

If someone could explain what the hell all this means, I'd be very grateful

MANY THANKS.

It means your local exchange is either a long way away and also more than likely contains antiquated equipment inside it.

Have you thought about switching to a 3G mobile network and using a dongle.
They could give you 2Meg+, but as always there's a downside. Depending on signal quality where you live you might have to use your pc in the garden to get a signal:roll:

I have a dongle (Orange) I use whilst at work. Unfortunately, the joys of living in a rural area mean I can only get a GPRS signal. :evil:

This posting may have been helpfull, on the other hand probably not... Either way, I may have had drink when posting it in which case it's probably not as helpfull as it could have been

Work safe, and remember all technical problems can be resolved with a hammer, the trick is knowing where to hit it and how big a hammer to use (I often find it may also help to have a spare bit in the shed to replace the bit you have just mullered ;) )

Work in Progress (or not as the case may be) I give you.... 'O-no' the truck.

iv just started with BT installing fibre internet and have a tester that shows actual download load speed and the potential of whats available, seen certain parts of belfast with the the potential of 140meg down and 60 odd up pretty mind blowing when you think off the dial up days
