FTTP - new install (28th) - initial speedtests

Hi,
FTTP installed yesterday, initial BT speedtests today are:
Downstream (a.m.)  :  18,841 Kbps      (p.m)  18,826 Kbps
Upstream (a.m.)      :    6,211 Kbps      (p.m)  13,667 Kbps
BT rate max as :
Down - IP Profile for your line is -106,417 Kbps
Up      - IP profile on your line is -  15,000 Kbps
looking forward to getting that max download - have not tried tweaking anything this end to improve it.

Jack

Re: FTTP - new install (28th) - initial speedtests

30-Sep-2011
Downstream (a.m.)  :  18,795 Kbps      (p.m)
Upstream (a.m.)      :  15,072 Kbps      (p.m)
I'm wondering if my downstream rate is being throttled by some setting or a very low sync rate.  Anything I can check my end?

p.s.
router is a ZyXel NBG4604, not the Netgear it says on my Plusnet account

Thanks Chris,
I ran another test at 8:58 and got 18,836 Kbps down, with 15,361 Kbps up.
Maybe the setting takes a while to propagate around?  I'll try another test around lunchtime.

Do you connect to the router wired or wireless?

For running the speed test I use a wired connection and the wireless LAN is disabled atm.
