IP Profile (revisited again!)

I currently sync at  7,456 and my Current Line Speed as reported here is 6500 yet a BT test shows my Profile as 5500.
Should that not also be set to 6500?
My line stats are:
Line Attenuation (Up/Down) [dB]: 2.5 / 5.0

SN Margin (Up/Down) [dB]: 23.0 / 12.0
This is not a complaint as I get fast downloads in the region of 500 to 620Kbps - just wondering?

Re: IP Profile (revisited again!)

The speed on the portal is taken from BT's BBCR reporting systems. From time to time, these updates either don't get sent or aren't received in a timely fashion. As long as the speed on the portal isn't lower than your IP profile then you've nothing really to worry about (if it was then you'd be getting artificially throttled).

Thanks Bob.
Like I say, I am pleased with the service and speeds I receive along with PN as a whole Smiley
