[DSL] 15/1 DSL actual speed?

I just switched to 15/1 DSL from 6/0.8. The modem (some TP-link) used to sync 5056/800 and now it's syncing at 17983/797. Upload basically didn't change at all. Does that sound normal? Actual speed tests on the net give me about 14/0.6 (used to be 5/0.6).

Ask for 17/1 if your line can handle it.

These are the actual stats right now (att is attentuation, cap is capacity utilization):

rate       noise   att      cap       power
17983      6.7     27.9     100%      13.9
 
rate       noise   att      cap       power
797        6.8     10.6     100%      11.3
 

Should I ask for more?

Your noise margins are borderline right now. Is it stable now?

It was dropping out every 5 min for about 30 min but it's been stable for 30 min now. Modem is TP-link 8816.

Switch to a broadcom based modem which plays better on the higher adsl2+ profiles. You'll see better stats and should be good for the full upload speed.

OK, I see Canada Computers has D-Link DSL-520B ($40) or Thomson ST516v6 ($50). Either of those good enough for 19/1?

Thanks for your help.

I've used the D-Link, it will work just fine.

On the 15/1 but my modem won't sync at the 17mbps, was told my rco was to high making it unstable 90%, have the same modem also.

dbv, was that speedtest taken using a new D-Link modem?

What are your new signal-to-noise ratios?

Taken just now. The stats at the top of the thread. TP-link 8816.

Your speedtest is fine for that profile. If you change modems your stats will likely improve and you can ask to increase the upstream profile.

Yep the Dlink worked great for me, coming from a TPlink as well.

The older D-Links work equally well and are sometimes available cheap as refurbs. Other good alternatives are Zoom and Netgears that you can pick up for $30 or so. Unlocked 2wires also work well.

Where do you get those? PC Cyber used to carry refurbs but they're dead now.

I bought my Zoom X3 from RBC in Bells Corners. They have other good ones as well. Lots of 2 wire modems are available on Ebay. Avoid Bell 2wires unless you want to spend some time unlocking them.

Is Teksavvy getting the Bell upgrade from 15/1 to 15/10?

We already have access to 15/10, it's just not worth offering to residential customers.

We only offer it to our Business customers.

So Bell isn't upgrading wholesalers ?

Hi TilhasBB,

I'm not quite sure what you mean by upgrading wholesalers.

We do have access to the 15/10, but simply chose not to offer it to our Residential customers.

Residential 15/1 with Bell are being upgraded to 15/10.

According to Velcom, they offer it, but it's a VSDL service meaning it depends on your coverage and you need to rent Bell's modem for 8$/month.

280/kbps. Poor service on the weekends and during evenings all week.
