Many South African ADSL subsribers are not getting the ADSL speed that they are paying for and there is a simple way to test. To test the speed of your ADSL connection, use the Internet Connection Speed Test to test both you upload and dowload speed. If you want to speed up your connection use the fast start info below.
Use a POTS-Splitter where your connection comes from the wall - available from any Telkom store.
Reduce the length of the wiring between your pots-splitter and your DSL modem and then again between your modem and your computer.
These two simple changes can increase your ADSL speed by as much as 200% if you have been experience slow ADSL speeds.
Test your ADSL upload and download speed again and if you are still not satisfied contact your ADSL provider to diagnose frther.
