What Rate do you get on MaxADSL ?

Curious to see the breadth of what speeds people are getting

I've assumed you mean the sync rate, not the speed you get on tests.

yup, sync rates

Synch Rate vs Performance

My hardware is currently connecting at 6304 Kbps and I'm getting 1 Mb or less :!:

The speed started at 5.9 Mbps Cheesy then deteriorated rapidly and stable rate now seems stuck at 1000 Kbps. Cry

Would it be better to have a poll showing the differences between connection speeds and the so-called stable rate?

Mine is minus 5.3 Mbps and I'm not very happy (currently on my 6th exchange of views on the ticket I raised, having got the first sensible reply on the 4th time of trying) Evil

Two accounts on Max.
One syncs at 8, and give constant speeds of 5.5-6.5 even with undoubtedly some of my users (50+) accessing the web at them same time + SMTP traffic etc at the same time.

The other syncs at 2, and gives speeds between 1.2 and 1.8 - a real improvement on the pre-max speeds of 0.5 on a good day!

Cool

Im syncing at 8128/448 on my router. I just did a speedtest and im getting speeds of just above 4Mbps, but below 8Mbps. Although it is quite concerning the 4 days my hardware has been running i've had about 4,000 Errored seconds!!

The speed my router connects at on a quiet day/morning is >3000kb/s, I live in the sticks and the BT guestimator still reckons I am lucky to get 512kb/s, so MaxDSL does work, but I think the BT implementation is targetting highest possible sync speed regardless fo how sustainable it is ... I'd prefer it synced at 2800kb/s to give me a good stable line without interleaving whilst currently it is having futile attempts at synching faster. Sad

... Funny I was "upgraded" then too and have a similar situation (sync @ 6 Mb but speed 1Mb which is lower than I was getting).

I voted 800 and above as router has synced since day 1 at 8128 down and 448 up...16 days almost at 10pm... Top speed received is 3500......PN stable rate 7000...Slowest speed received 300..
Aint MAXDLS brilliant, NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Constant speed around 1mb to 1.5mb
