I am on an ADSL2+ connection which as you can see from the graph below, should be giving me up to 24000 kbps speed.
Yet when I did a speed test this is what the results were.
[`[*Test Results from <a href="http://www.ozspeedte...ts/15211829">Oz Broadband Speed Test</a>*]`]
Test run on [*22/02/2011*] @ [*09:06 PM*])]
[(Mirror: [*Telstra Bigpond*]
Data: [*3 MB*]
Test Time: [*8.12 secs*])]
[(Your line speed is [*3.02 Mbps*] (3016 kbps).
Your download speed is [*377 KB/s*] (0.37 MB/s). )]
I had all other applications closed at the time and only my pc connected via ethernet connection. I live approx 1km away from my nearest exchange.
I rang my ISP to query this. They told me this was perfectly in range for ADSL2+. Here are the ranges they gave me;
24/1 ADSL2+ 1500/700 - 24000/1000 kbps 188/88 - 3000/125 KB/s
Ok, Im gathering I should be looking at the lower ranges, but since my speeds are not much above the minimums, what steps can I take to get them higher if any?
