This has been covered in LOADS of threads. It's not PN it's the BT BRAS. Give it a few days.

Its a mix tbh.

The BRAS should update automatically within 3 days. However this is of little use or consolation if BT havent supplied Plusnet with the Delta report for your connection. This report is a report of your line and the different speeds it has been tested with and which ones are stable etc. It is only when BT hand this over to Plusnet ( usually the 10 day mark ) when you see an increase in your speed.

Are you sure about that Tom? I could only get a 1Mb line (attenuation excluded me for the 2Mb) until I was maxed on the 2nd. Last night my speed tests were all in excess of 3500 kbps and I am before any 3 or 10-day mark. Perhaps I am missing something in the message ?Huh

Read http://aaisp.net.uk/maxmagic.html for background information explaining one view on what is/not happening with MaxDSL.

thefergies,

This is the information I have been given and so have passed it on.
To be honest I am surprised that the full speed was available to you right after a reboot, ( I am jealous lol ).

Thanks - this suggests that the 'system' rate limits until it can react to increase in sync speed and that this would be "within" 3 days. However it also says that in reality is that it reacts within 15 minutes. This would explain things re. my post.

gosdell - I spelled it out a bit here as you need to edit your linky to remove the full stop as it does not work at the mo'

Im sticking to the hope that the 3 day rule is correct.

Unfortunately my connection first synced at 2mb after the connection was maxed, although the SNR was 18! It must have been like this for a few hours before I spotted it.

When I did, it synced at 5mb. But it seems my connection may MSR may have already been set by then, because the PN figure is still reading 2000, even though ive been synced between 4600 and 5100 for almost the last 48 hours, and have had three reboots in that time to try and "kick" it into action.

I hope that Ive not been set at 2mb due to the first initial connection which was very low for some reason. :?

Oh well - time will tell. Im going to try and leave it on solid for the next 24 hours, then maybe connect with the face plate removed.

TBH chesterfield I don’t know what is going on - I am synced At 8.1Mbps plus net page says my connection is 7000 and my download speed it now 3902.8.

This morning I couldn’t connect, had to leave it for several hours - maybe this has something to do with it - i hope 3-4Mbps isnt my final speed. :?

Yeah - I reckon the whole system will be a bit "busy" to be honest - so its probably just "one of those things".

Im in no rush for the extra speed - to behonest im just glad to have any type of broadband connection back!

Extra speed will just be a bonus really.

Thanks Tom & Chesterfield - I get the picture now; I figured that everyone would get a download speed to match the syc speed within a short period of time just because I did. It appears that it takes a bit longer for a few people and some are getting stuck in a '2Mb/s rut' for even longer than that - there is something in the above linky that suggests that BTw need to give things a kick to get it out of this rut on rare occasions - I hope that you have not been unlucky in that respect but it is probably too early to tell.

Don't be to jealous of me - that's the fastest speed I will get and I am kinda jealous of all those people getting 8Mb/s first time!
