56K Modem

  [DELETED] 12:18 23 Nov 2003

What is the fastest connection speed, normally delivered with a 56K modem on DUN?
Mine has recently increased from 44000bps to 52000bps. I see a big difference in downloads and wonder if this is due to the ISP server, BT wiring, or something with my PC or Win sttings?
What do you think?

Thats about as good as you get. You'll never get 56bps.

the fugure 56kbs = '56 kilo bits' i.e. 56000 bits per secound. So achieving 44000-52000 bits per secound is about right, and good for a dialup. It is very rare you will achieve better than this, as some of the speed is muted by error correction protocols.

Hope that helps a little understanding?

It was what might have caused the increase that I was wondering over.

all the people going over to BroadBand?... freeing up the local exchange routers? The same might be true for the ISP routers.

If your modem is V92 capable, it might also be that your ISP has just enabled their routers to accept the new protocol.

But not my experience. Mines getting better.
A few years ago, I was only getting 33K and and complained to Tiscali. They gave me a different dial in number and I was quite happy with 44K. This change just happened recently. Coincides with an increase in charges??? As I said - not complaining. DGB
