I have just received an upgrade from BTYahoo to 8Mbs However on test I am now getting 0.5 Mbs downstream and only 0.3 Mbs upstream. Is this normal for this sort of upgrade and will it get better? If so, why does this happen?
I am using the BT 2091 Wireless router, which is what they recommend. I have been told on the BT newsgroup that it can take up to two weeks to come up to speed. I simply do not understand why. When I was first upgraded from 512 Kbs to 2.1 Mbs, it happened instantly.
It's probably just a matter of waiting but can you get your line stats from your router, sync speed, SNR, Attenuation etc. as this can give an indication of the speed your likely to end up with. Also take note if your sync speed changes at all during the 10 day period.
I was stuck at 2 Meg for the first 3 days... granted that was better than.
I have just upgraded today 24th and BT called to advise that "it could take upto 10days for the line to become stable" and "you might experience slower speeds and the occasional drop-out, but all should be well after this initial period" - we shall see.
