Just had my BT Broadband service upgraded from 512kbps to 2mb as part of the free BT improvement package. After having had dial up for many years I thought the 512kbps service was fast but this 2mb is unbelievable compared to my original service so thank you BT.
When I check my connection I get 2272kbps download speed and 308kbps upload speed,is this what I can expect as normal from now on.
Asynchronous DSL is a variant of DSL and SDSL is another. The latter is aimed at business and can give up and download at the same speed.
ADSL normally have a 'standard' upload speed, usually 256Kb, but this can be set lower or higher depending on the ISP's pricing policy and other considerations. Another factor taken into account is the contention ratio. This is between 20:1 and 50:1 depending on how much you pay the provider per month.
Just my reasoning which may not be wholly accurate. TC.
