anybody showed speed increase after being slow after 8meg ug

ok guys here it is.

was on 2 meg superb service speed and connections secound to none.

i have not long had the 8 meg upgrade, 2 weeks ago i think, but i have the crappest speeds ever, done both plus nets own, and the standart bt instructions they suggest for speed testing properly.

and the max speed i have seen is 3.2, right down to 1.7, that was after 5 attempts on the bt speed test,

on the bog stadard +net one i havnt seen above 2.7 even at 3 am in the morning.

i ave now raised this point with +net and iam awaiting a reply.
i also can say on the dissconnection front, its been suerb not one dissconnection at all, as i know some of you have reported bad connections,mine has been great.

but my question to any of you guys is this.

has any of you on the 8 meg upgrade had these kind of speeds and then it has gone to its full potential.

reason i ask is simply iam being told time again allow at least 2 months as max dsl can be like this for a while....well is it true and any if you seen it happen??

as i my doubts on this ever going to top speed.

thanks for your time guys.

If it's any consolation, I'm in a similar boat to you - have never seen over 4mbps, despite always syncing at 8192.

thanks for the reply.

couple of more questions.

do you think it will get better?

also iam actualy i contact with my modem customer support to, and they have just asked me for my snr figures, and when i told them my snr is downstream, 10.5, they told me this is bad and ring bt to check the line.

do you think i should, and if so who exactly do i ring and what do i ask for?

and what should my snr figures be?

Was upgraded 3 May, but it took something like 1½ months before my stable rate was increased from 2000 to 8000 - something to do with me having migrated to PlusNet apparently.

If you mean acceptable rather than exceptable, then they pretty much are. MaxDSL is more sensitive towards things, and so speeds can vary a lot more than on previous BT broadband products.
