Poor speed and poor answer from support


Poor speed and poor answer from support

I raised this with support and they said there is nothing they can do. My speed connection speed is set at 2000, but the BT spedd test shows this. Why am I not getting the speed BT have shown.

Test1 comprises of Best Effort Test: -provides background information.
IP profile for your line is - 5500 kbps
DSL connection rate: 448 kbps(UP-STREAM) 6304 kbps(DOWN-STREAM)
Actual IP throughput achieved during the test was - 1916 kbps

If you wish to discuss these results please contact your ISP.

What does say?

If it says, as I suspect it will, say 2000 you need to raise a ticket stating that your IP profile is 5500 and your stable rate is much lower. The two figures should be fairly close (within 500).

That is basically what I said to them,and all I got back was there was nothing they could do.

I emailed them back, and now they say it will take 3 days. I though the 3 days was the line training and testing time or something like that, and not just setting the stable rate to my IP rate which I thought would be instantaneous.

Hi there,

I've upped your connection profile at our end to match BT's. A reboot is required but that should sort it for you.

Let me know if you have any further problems.
