Just switched to BT Broadband and it is REALLY slow. Running Windows 2000 (SP4) with Norton Internet Security 2006. Speeds with previous ISP not this slow. BT said that my line could take 4Mbps. Carried out a speed test on BT's own website and it came out with following results: IP Profile=152kbps DSL connection rate=416kbps (up-stream) =1728kbps (down-stream) Actual IP throughput=120kbps
i thimk im correct in saying your getting just short of 2 meg, if it's a new line it takes about 2 weeks to get your optimum speed, mine was about 1.5 meg for 8 days then shot up to just under 6 meg, its stayed betweene there and 7 meg since
I was running Norton with previous ISP and it definitely wasn't this slow. I'm not sure what the contention ratio is like with BT but i think I'll have to give them a bell and ask them to sort it out. Many Thanks All.
