How long till stable rate set on MaxDsl (so slow) ?

Does anyone know How long it will be till my stable rate will be set ?
Ok it used to be 10 days any ideas anyone

https://portal.plus.net/my.html?action=stable_rate says 2mb, as it has done since 20th of may when i went on to max , my speed has never gone above 1mb since moving on to max even though my connection has never dropped below 7mb

bt connection says aprox 800k connection Sad
plus net between 400k and 950k Sad

I used to have a fast 2mb connection Evil

Looking at the results you're reporting, its possible that your exchange is highly contended at the moment. Have you tred running the BT speed test between midnight and seven in the morning? As during that time slot the contention should be at its lowest and you should see a better result from the speed test.

As for the MSR as reported on the portal, this should be set soon based on the information collected during the settling in period.

My stable rate has stuck at 2000Kbps for over 3 weeks now.
