Speed issues

I've been monitoring this for two weeks now with speeds between 440k and 4000k with the average at 1.7k for an 8k service.

Just used the BT speedtest where I see the following
IP profile for your line is - 5000 kbps
DSL connection rate: 448 kbps(UP-STREAM) 5792 kbps(DOWN-STREAM)
Actual IP throughput achieved during the test was - 3778 kbps

Using the PN speedtest I get 850k?

Plesae can you look at this for me.

Speed issues

Using the PlusNet speed test over the last few weeks has provided me with some interesting results to say the least!
Today was no exception......I have been maxed this week but the figures lower down seem rather excessive :shock:

Fortunately tests on other sites prove more reliable

Speed issues and test reults

The results I get from the tests are
adslguide - 4328 down and 370 upload - 1468 down and 379 upload
speedtest.bbmax - 4556 down and 369 upload

Any help?

I realise that there are bandwidth probs earlier but will try these again at 8pm tomorrow to see if there is any difference.

Speed issues

Given the speed results that you are getting on the other speedtesting sites ( is a little unreliable), I'd say that your profile and general speed seems to be about right.


OK, many thanks for your help. I will keep an eye on things for a short while. Looks as if I will have to live with it for now.

Once again thanks
