4mb NTL

Well yesterday I decided to do a speed test on my ntl line…and it seems its runing at 4mb with a 0.4mb upload wich is cool… cos Im only supose to be on 2mb :confused: ah well im not really complaining :slight_smile:

something good ntl have done ? :wink:

Yep, they’ve done a free upgrade on the 2 meg accounts. And the old top account (3 or 4 meg) is now 10 :).

Yep all 2mb accounts will be upgraded by the end of June, see Here


mine is supposed to be 2meg connection although i’m on I.O.W don’t think BT has upgraded the exchange here yet :frowning: anyone know how i can find out if they have or not ??

this is from my speed test as i said it supposed to be 2 meg

Your estimated download speed is: 131 kbits/sec - (0.13Mb) - (16 KBytes/sec)
You told us your speed was Up to 2Mb and your ISP: ntl Freedom
Check Again? - Would you like to leave your comments/reviews on: ntl Freedom? »» NEW ««

My connection is supposed to be 2mb.
from a test i done it said…
Your connection 1.62Mb

Is this normal?
Plus im with NTL should i not be upgraded?

The upgrades probably haven’t been rolled out to everyone yet. Also any net bandwidth test can only say what speeds you’re getting to them at the time. It may not be your maximum.

contention ratios, apparently not part of NTL structure, but the only way you could possibly explain the changes in speed. Sometimes I get my full whack, sometimes I don’t.


Ahh ok well that does explain it thanks :slight_smile:

yeah not all area have had the upgrades yet, NTL say that everyone on 2mb will be upgraded by the end of June, BTW Andy try rebooting your modem and see if you pick up the new config file… then do a speed test and see if you have 4mb.


ahh good idea… ill give that a go… what is the best speed test to use becuase i just google for speed tests yesterday and im not sure i got a very accrurate reading.

Ahh never mind it seems to be a goodun Here

@ Andy try this one Here


Thats excelent curly thx :slight_smile:
and guess what :slight_smile:

but the exchange is shot and is being repaired at least 2 days out of 5, maybe its time to make it irrepairable… mwahaha
