adsl max'd now I'm not getting 1MB !!!!!

I am still within the 10 days of getting ADSLMax but,
what on earth is happening, I've been getting the disconnections that I was warned about but I didn't expect my speed to actually drop.

Plusnet speed test reported this :

Your current speed is:

939.40kbps

Which means you can download at 117.42 KB/sec. from our servers. Our results show that your current speed is below the level we would expect for your product, you may be able to increase the speed of your connection by adjusting your settings.

53.3 kbps 56k Dial Up
64 kbps ISDN 1 Channel
128 kbps ISDN Dual Channel
460 kbps ADSL 500
920 kbps ADSL 1000
939.4 kbps YOU
1840 kbps ADSL 2000

same here, just been moved to max, got the following on my router:

down: 8128
up:448
Line Attenuation: 33db down, 9db up
Noise margin: 11db down, 19db up.

my BT speed test reported 1.4mbps, my other speed tests between 1.1 and 2.0mbps.

I am not complaining as I asked to be moved and I am hoping this is because of the training period, but I don't understand why the BT speed test is so low.

EDIT: I haven't seen any disconnections though, but I have restarted my router a few times to see if the speed increased at all.

You may have a low stable speed sit in your profile, wait until the 10 days training has expired, and then reboot your router once a day for three days and see if the speed increases.

my router reports this

ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
Connection Speed 1536 kbps 416 kbps
Line Attenuation 32 db 13 db
Noise Margin 16 db 6 db

Beginning to think this is one big mistake !!!

You're lucky... i upgraded last week (knowing about the 10 day dodgy period) but after the first 24 hours my download speed's dropped to 32kb/s !! Router syncs at 8128 D/L & 448 U/L...

Was disconnected every day for the first 5 days which was resolved by rebooting the router.

Hope it doesn't continue after the 10 day period...

Your upstream speed of 416 is unusual, also your noise margin is high.

If you could maybe disconnect router from the phone line, wait 10s, then reconnect and write down the new router stats as above, and do this once an hour or so and report back here with the new router status on each occasion ... maybe we can get an idea what is happening on your line.

Unfortunately, other ISP's getting a similar poor performance on MaxDSL. Sad
