Yes 100% normal Smiley
2.2Mbps is the Line Speed.
You receive 2Mbps from PlusNet and this can vary a bit.
That is about average speed for 2mb connection.
Remember that speed can increase during non-peak times Smiley

2MB Speed Question

Hallo,

I am using 2MB Premier second week. I tested Sped with various web pages and getting speed around 610(min)-920kbps(max). Usually evening time.

I checked with DSLzoneuk.nEt that I am around 453m straight line from my exchange MYARM.

From my point of view it is very poor speed as I expected to be around 1.5MB as ADSL can reach pretty good sped to 2km from exchange.

I am on the extention line (6m) from main BT socket.

Any suggestions? Shoul I report this to Support?

Thanks

he speed test has completed on test server speedtester1.nat.bt.com for user and you have downloaded a 1.7Mb file at a speed of

529 kilo bits per second (Kbps), your service bandwidth will have been quoted to you in kilo bits per second.

BT would regard the speed ranges shown below as normal service:

For 250kbps End Users speeds between 50 - 250kbps.

Yup,

Although PN will agree that your not seeing the speed you ought to get, their hands are tied as BT has outlined anything between 400 and 2000 is perfectly normal.

Just keep trying and best thing to do is to set your router up for 1 nights testing.
Hopefully you will catch a couple of occassions where it goes below the 400 mark or awefully close.

I will edit this post again when I have found the script concered. Not made by me but rather by another member of the PN user base but nice and neat all the same.
