Hi i was wondering if u could shed some light on this ,i would be very grateful,
I recently upgraded from a 1mb DSL connection to a 2mb connection but notice no real difference in connection speed...
I've done a connection speed test and the result was 1683.05kbits/s.
Can u tell me is this consistent with a 2mb dsl connection speed?If so,why do i not notice any difference from the 1mb connection?

Thanks alot

My apologies for posting in the wrong forum...just noticed

Maybe ur connection is shared and not dedicated.
If ur browsing light websites most of the times u wont notice the difference with the two connections, u can be sure of that by checking ur transfer rate when ur downloading. on 1 Mbit/s bandwidth u should be able to download at 128 Kbytes/sec of course most probably u will never reach 128 kbytes/sec u will be around that maybe 110 kbytes/sec at 2 Mbits/sec u will be able to download at 256 kbytes/sec anf again u wont reach it u will be around it, maybe 230 kbytes/sec.

U also should not forget that the more u are far from the phone distribution line in ur town the more less bandwidth u will get so maybe the loss of the bandwidth is due to the distance.

call the support of ur ISP to know more.
