Do you get faster BBand speeds after stabilisation

  [email protected] 16:50 24 Feb 2007

I am in my 10 day period of stabilisation after upgrading from a 2mbps connection to an 8mbps one. I am getting speeds of 4.4 almost everytime I check (One of 4.5 and one of 4.2 the rest 4.4) is it likely to get faster if "stabilised" or is this likely to be what I am stuck with?
(It actually seems worse than before but I presume that is the unstable part???)

It could get faster, it could get slower, depending on the speed the line settles at. See what connection speed your modem/router shows.

To add, if you have seen the same connection speed for a few days, I would say your line is stable, so 4.4 ish is probably what you'll end up with.

Thanks Dipso, it has only been two days since activation (as of Sunday morning). According to BT my line can provide up to 8mbps. I think after 10 days I can contact my ISP and they will take up the speed with BT.
I was hoping for more than half the advertised speed!
I have to say it doesn't appear any different to what it was at 2mbps but I suppose it must be! (at 2mbps I was getting speeds of 1.8 )
