You're on an ASAM (aka - older cabinet) which has limited bandwidth to give out to people (like you) connected to it. Your speedtests also show this.

Only thing you can do if you want faster internet is to simply move out of the area to a VDSL or UFB area except that isn't too simple to some people so in your case you have to just cope with what you've got. It is still well above the minimum spec so there is nothing at all wrong.

Would spending $200 or so on a master filter be worthwhile then, or would I see limited increases ?
thanks

Fairly unlikely.

quickymart: Fairly unlikely.


Interesting so the claims of a 10% speed increase that I read in one of the discussions, not sure were now are not really justified or proven ?

the claims are justified, however it appears (atlest going off the assumption mitchael did a lookup.) You are on an ASAM.


Due to the Limited backhaul bandwidth between the cabinet and the "internet", Your speed limitation is not purely your sync rates. - which is what a master filter will improve.


The thing that a master filter will do for you, is quite likely cleanup the connection between You and the Cabinet. (so in this case, Reduce possible errors, increasing stability.)

Just found this 

So how much faster will my broadband be with a master filter? That’s a tough question to answer, because the results are going to depend entirely on the condition of your existing wiring. It’s very rare for a master filter to not increase broadband speeds by a minimum of 5 to 10%. It’s entirely realistic in circumstances where wiring is very poor to see speed double, or even triple. While certainly not the norm, I’ve installed master filters that have resulted in speeds going from under 5Mbps to in excess of 15Mbps. Based upon the vast number of threads on Geekzone where internal wiring is discussed and on statistics gathered from a recent project undertaken by a major ISP looking at the internal wiring issue, it’s safe to pick a modest median speed increase in the vicinity of 20% to 50%.

That improvement is the sync rate between your modem and the exchange or cabinet. In general terms, this is the weakest link for most people, so addressing this gives an improvement.

In your case however, it isn't the limiting factor, so it you aren't likely to see a lot of benefit.

Okay but would you think 10% increase might be a realistic outcome ?
Basically if i could not achieve this then I can not see the value of it and would consider wireless

This claims up to 10X faster than standard broadband, I take this with a huge pinch of salt but would expect some realistic gains from this ?

I think that sbiddle was talking about VDSL2 here - not ADSL1, which is what you have.

You would probably get less benefit from a master filter than somebody with VDSL2 would.

New modem will make absolutely no difference at all.

As I've mentioned numerous times based on all the information you've so far posted (and without seeing your DSL sync stats which really is the most critical aspect of diagnosing this, and any issue) your connection is working as designed and has no fault and is likely an ADSL1 BUBA connection.

Okay if you had to put a number on in terms of speed increase we talking less than 10% then ?
