Currently upgrading to MAXAdsl... Need some advice please

Hi All

I'm currently in the process of being upgraded to MAXAdsl.

It started on Monday morning when my router started reporting 8128 kbps download and 448 upload. (I was on 2mb previously).

Here are some stats from www.speedtest.net:

9/13/2006 6:04 PM GMT 5381 kb/s 364 kb/s 22 ms


9/13/2006 5:53 PM GMT 4246 kb/s 371 kb/s 61 ms

9/13/2006 4:15 PM GMT 3185 kb/s 367 kb/s 64 ms

9/12/2006 5:05 PM GMT 1963 kb/s 372 kb/s 63 ms

9/11/2006 7:08 PM GMT 1903 kb/s 328 kb/s 180 ms

8/31/2006 9:15 AM GMT 1836 kb/s 187 kb/s 24 ms


Here's what my router is currently saying:

ADSL Link Downstream Upstream 

Connection Speed 8128 kbps - 448 kbps
Line Attenuation 16 db - 4 db
Noise Margin 13 db - 29 db


Every time I've checked my router since Monday morning, it's been saying 8128 kbps downstream and 448 kbps upstream.

With those Line Attenuation and Noise Margin figures, do you think I should see the full 8mbps downloads after the 10 days is up?

Thanks in advance!

It certainly looks to me like there is room for improvement on your connection.

How much I wouldn't like to suggest, but I believe the target DS SNR to be 6db so you have a fair way to go before you hit that.
If the system works as it should, you ought to see a steady increase over the next few days.

Hi,

Just to add, the 8Mbps refers to the sync rate rather than the throughput speed. The sync speed includes a certain amount of overhead data so the maximum throughput is actually around 7.1Mbps. 5381kbps is a very good speed for peak time and you may see a little more off peak.
