I just got off the phone from a CSR of PTCL. I called
him about upgrading my port, since it was set at a
downstream rate of 8192 Kbps (which means I can't
get more than 6,5Mbps from this 8Mbps connection
no matter what).
6.5 Mbps x 1/8 = 8192 Kbps
He tells me PTCL only gives 60% of it's advertised
speed to it's customers. So if you are getting 6.5Mbps
on a 8.0Mbps line, "Sir aap lucky haiN".
Funny, I don't feel very 'lucky'. In fact, I feel defrauded.
Theoretically, a 8Mbps line should give a 8 x 1/8 = 1.0
Kbps. That would be 100%. But because of contention
ratios, 'line losses', etc you won't get that. But PTCL
wants you to take 60% and be thankful.
