Broadband speeds

  carryduff 11:47 09 Aug 07

My broadband connection is only 100mbps and I've run the speed tests that say it should be 3 or 4 times this. I'm using BT Voyager 210 through an ethernet connection. Should I contact BT or is there some other way to speed things up. Thanks in advance for any help on the matter.

Contact your ISP initially.

This is a problem that occurs frequently, and there can be many reasons for service performances. You haven't mentioned your service provider, but best to contact them direct for support.

Isn't the 100 Mbps the speed of the network card?

I have the same on my PC:

It will be some time before we can utilise the full speed of our network cards at least until we all have fibre optic connections and the commitment and money to invest in the capacity of the network.

As far as I know you can only get up to 8 Mb on standard ADSL and up to 24 Mb on ADSL2+ services.

based on your later posting you are running at around 4 meg which is what your isp says you should have
