So TB, if I understand you correctly, the more I use the internet and download the better the average speed will get? :D ;)
No.

Well, how then pray can I ensure they maintain the higher speeds if they are monitoring use and adjusting whatever they adjust, as you stated? ;)

You can't.  Its an automatic relearning process.  The DSLAM may decide your current speed is too unstable, so notch it down a bit to gain stability.

I don't tolerate bickering, and I'm always grumpy.
And Lizzie Zoom says I'm a heartless bastid...and she's absolutely correct!

If they noted how often I used Broadband to be on the OOF I would be up to maximum speed, but of course that is not how it works apparently! :P ;D ;D ;)

Best thing you can do, is not to reboot / unplug your router.  Leave it on and dont touch it unless you have problems.

Thanks Jimbob, my router does remain on constantly as a matter of course,so I will now definitely ensure that remains the case :y

Today the speed has hit 43.8 Mb/s!

They completed whatever they had to do, finally, this morning at 0900.

With a 30 credit in my pocket I have now no complaints.  Will do me - for now! ;D ;D ;)
