How long to become stable ??

Took the plunge, upgraded to fibre, and am now wondering how long before I get near the speed I should .

I'v looked at some other posts and done the check via BT :

                                         Down        Up

I should have :- VDSL A 80  74.8   20  20

                          VDSL B 80  59.1  20  17.8

 

Speed check shows :

Ping Download Upload
100 ms 11.46 Mb/s 1.57 Mb/s

 

Two days ago, on ADSL, I had 7.92Mb/s down and .93 Mb/s up

 

Just as well I didn't take the TV option ( yet ) as not reaching the minimum 15 Mb/s download speed.

 

I'm 1km from the exchange and roughly 200 mtrs from the " green box " using a new OpenReach model 5 thingy.

Regards ..

The stabilization period should not apply to FTTC circuits.

If these your quoted estimates...

 

I should have :- VDSL A 80  74.8   20  20

                          VDSL B 80  59.1  20  17.8

 

 

Then either your Connection profile is incorrect, or you have a fault.  I'm sure the kind folk over at Plusnet would be happy to check this for you Smiley

Re: How long to become stable ??

have you checked the connection speed reported by the router

Note you are probably on standard fibre with maximum connection speeds of 40/2

There's a stuck profile which will have caused this.

Can you try retesting it now?
