Re: Slow internet

Do you have any near neighbours using broadband and if so what speeds do they get?

If something is in the pipeline it might have some information here: http://www.superfast-openreach.co.uk/where-and-when/#

There's no way you're going to convince me that 150kB/s is good .

I didn't say 150kB/s was good - I said it was good for your line.

Re: Slow internet

according to that you must right next to the street cabinet, and fibre is available to you.
i would advise you upgrade to FTTC if you want faster speeds.

Re: Slow internet

That suggests that your attenuation reported by the router is 'a bit off' so you could expect better speeds, you also appear to have FTTC available (and really decent speeds if you go for that option).
Have you access to another modem/router to try?

If I can trust the router stats - attenuation of 69.5dB suggests you should get no ADSL whatsoever!!!

All advice given has been predicated on the above.
BT estimates are just that estimates, not an assurance.
What does this report - http://www.kitz.co.uk/adsl/adslchecker.php ?  In particular the line length.  If it is different to 5km then may be there is something to be explored. However other than your opinion and the BT estimate, there is nothing to suggest that line is behaving otherwise than correct.

As for your sig, you have no information about the age of the spectrum of forum members on which to make the claims about the age of 60% of members.  Age of members has no real bearing on matters, other than the older ones usually have a lot more experience than the younger ones, albeit we might just be not quite so young enough to know everything about everything.
