Have just upgraded from ADSL 512 kbps to ADSL2+ with theoretical maximum of 24 Mbps and have been disappointed that the speed increase has not been dramatic. ISP is Netspace, I have a Netgear GD834G modem with software downloaded this week, and I live 800 metres from Davey Exchange in Tasmania.
Ran ADSL2+ speed test with speedtest.net and got the following:
* Ping 76 ms
* Download Speed 2.34 Mb/s (Presume this is megabits per second)
* Upload Speed 0.66 Mb/s
Then repeated test with ozspeedtest.com as follows:
* Line Speed 2.33 Mbps
* Download Speed 291 KB/s (0.28MB/s) [which I calculate = 2.24 Mbps]
Third test with cnet.com.au gave line speed of 2265 Kbps (Calculate = 2.21 Mbps)
Remarkably consistent figures, but should not the download speed be substantially faster? Any help or guidance will be appreciated.
