bt speedtester results??

just noticed my speeds have dropped of today after messing about with the phone line yesterday putting a new line in upstairs.

so I've just done a test on speedtester.bt.com and I'm sure it used to say what the maxed speed was and not just profile speed? i'm I right?

Hi there,

Looks like you've been syncing at 1728Kbps. If you are now syncing at the full 8Mbps, you speeds should repick up again in the next 3 days.

Good point. I would have expected slightly higher. Do you notice any difference if you do a reboot and then try again?

was this aimed at me? cos it doesn't sound like it

anyway, BT profile is back up at 7150 now, how long will it take for plusnet to catch up, as this is still down at 2000?

This is now showing at 7mb, if you haven't reconnected since then you won't have picked up the new profile. All you need do is drop the connection for 5-10 minutes or so and then reconnect and things should improve dramatically.

Hope this helps, sorry for the hassle,
