Speed complaint.......................NOT !!

I'm on the  Value package,which normall delivers about 6.2 Mbps,ok no worries. Sometimes,  it might creep up to nearly or about 7 Mbps. Infact last couple of weeks it has been nudging 7.
Anyway,this am,thought  I'd do another test,................................................I'm now getting 12 + Shocked
Ive now done the test on several testing sites,and they all say "12-13" Ms...................I'm assuming theres a fault somewhere out there".
PS.a friend is on Plusnets unlimited plan which from what Ive read,says she can get "upto" 12Mps,checked this morning,shes getting about 13. I thought that if there was a" fault",her speed thingy might be reading circa 18Mps.............but not so.....................so.........just wonder if anybody else has noticed a "big increase in speed.

Post the router stats - this explains http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php/topic,96155.0.html - and we would have an idea what has happened

As far as I know you would get as much as your line would support and your modem would sync at.
It may be that some work has been done somewhere on your line / cabinet / exchange which has resulted in a better sync for your service Smiley

A thought
Has your exchange had 21CN enabled and you have been moved to it - this would explain the increase

The location of the green box is only relevant to FTTC products - it has no bearing on the performance of ADSL. It's more likely that your friend has a capped upstream - if she asks, PN will uncap it for her for no extra cost on 21CN ADSL.
