Syncing at 7200kbps but speedtest at 1meg

Hi, My router is syncing at 7200kbps but I am still only able to download at 100-120kb/sec according to various speed tests. I have done the disconnect the modem once a day for 3 days thing but no luck?

What does the BT Speedtester report your IP Profile as?

Where are you in the billing month and have you exceeded your usage allowance?

Looks like your MaxDSL upgrade is complete, I've given things a nudge from here. Reboot your modem/router and you should see higher speeds coming through.

Hey, slight problem, my profile is slower than my sync speed, I am syncing at around 7800-7900kbps but my profile is set to 6500kbps. Thanks Smiley Apart from that cheers for the 'bump'

There is always overhead associated with a broadband connection, so your IP Profile can never be higher than 7150kbps.

If your line syncs above 7968kbps for 3-5 days then your IP Profile will increase to 7000kbps.

There's a table on this page that shows the corresponding throughput rates (IP profile) for the sync speed:

Currently sync'd at 5000, downloads are presently 100 they were at a consistient 500 plus until 4 or 5 days ago.

Not happy, the only way to get an increase in speed it to re-connect and hope for a different gateway. The anoying thing about that is that re-connecting means my bras will never increase to what it used to be 7000 plus.

Are there major slow downs on the network?

Could someone please point me in the direction of file download tests to time the downloads.

Cheers

A

Heanet usually gives fairly good speeds:

although a download for me now is coming down at just under 100KB/s.

Another is

http://mirror.ac.uk/mirror/

Getting 600KB/s from there now.
