Doesn't seem right to me.

Hi,

Sorry, another MaxDSL query.

Myself and a friend are both on the same exchange and both with plusnet. He lives roughly 6Km from the exchange and previously could only get a 512 connection. I live 750mtrs from the exchange and was on 2Mb.

Now, after MaxDSL he is on approx a 6 Mb connection and I am 'only' on between 2.5 and 4 Mb, I would have thought I would have got at least the same connection as him if not better.

I'm on day 14 now, is it too soon to expect things to have settled down.

Stats taken from the router are (they don't mean much to me)

ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
Connection Speed 8128 kbps 448 kbps
Line Attenuation 21 db 5 db
Noise Margin 9 db 27 db
2 REPLIES

With stats like those I'd be very surprised if you don't end up on the full 8.

Having said that this is early days for MaxDsl so I wouldn't hold your breath.

Hi,

Those line stats show that you're sync'd at 8Mbps, although at peak times in particular speeds will likely be slower than the maximum (max throughout on an 8Mbps sync speed is about 7.1Mbps) so 2.5-4Mbps is probably about right. If you try it outside peak you'll probably see a bit more.
