Stable Rate problem

Ever since I moved house and on to a non-LLU connection my Stable Rate has remained at 8000, as shown by the tools in "connection settings". Will this have any effect on my connection/speed? I Sync at 7600kbps consistently, I have never seen it less) but even in the early hours only get download speeds of 5600kbps. It regularly gets this figure, with almost identical results on different days, suggesting this is not a contention issue.

I would guess it is just incorrectly reported?

Stable Rate problem

It shouldn't cause any problems, but I've updated it to 7000kbps which is what BT are reporting, but if it's sync'ing at 7600kbps it'll probably be showing 6500kbps as the IP profile if you run the BT speedtest

Which should mean that speedtests will top out around 6Mbps so 5600kbps isn't far off the max.
