Thanks for the heads-up, I hadn't noticed this. A very welcome piece of news indeed.

Do you have to request the upgrade or is it done automatically.I'm on Home 1 FTTC at present on a 40/10 connection.

If I read the page right it's a one off fee of 15 to order the upgrade, though no new contract.

Thats correct,I phoned them this afternoon to check and then proceeded to do the regrade online.

A bit better than my old ADSL days of getting 2.5mb down and 0.6mb up  :-X

That's a respectable result!  :)

I see your connection is categorised as "Faster than 93% of GB".

When I check my circuit (operating in G.992.3 mode, a.k.a. ADSL2 mode) I am told that my connection is "faster download than 20% on DSL in the UK" with a result of 4.65/0.81 Mbps.  ;)

Which equates to approximately "faster download than 18% on DSL in the UK". So you and I are within 2% of each other.  :)

Mine is also rather pessimistic, even though it is good for an ADSL2+ line. Slower than 57% of the UK. Better ping than many on FTTC though which I am pleased by, even over wi-fi.

See

Knowing your location and the infrastructure involved in bringing xDSL signals to you, that is also a respectable result!  :)

At the start of 2016 I used to get a downstream speedtest result from speedof.me of >7.7 Mbps, and until fairly recently my combined upload speed was > 1.0 Mbps.

The upload speed loss is a complete mystery, in that the DSL numbers don't seem to have changed. Neither can one tester be blamed as all show a decrease, even though they don't agree with one another. I haven't examined the history of Firebrick software upgrades to see if there's a possibility of the Firebrick's upload aggregation having become less optimal.

The download speed is due to sync speed reductions of a few hundred k across all three lines, and the noise margins have grown less be around 1 dB. It's possible that the attenuation has worsened slightly, I'd have to recheck this.
