With DSL, there is a certain amount of overhead(system data) and then line distance to the main connection point down the street.

So your speeds will average about 500Kbps to 1000Kbps slower than package top rated speed.

My ISP is Telus and my package is 6Mbps. My stable speeds are about 5200Kbps(5.2Mbps) 24/7.

Sometimes there is a delay in processing for full speed if a tech has to do something at the main switch for your connection. But if you are upgrading from 3Mbps, then you have probably hit top speed if it is now stable at that.

When I upped my package from 3Mbps. I had about 24 hours of unstable speeds in the 4mbps range, till it locked in to the new speed. So my tests were all over the place.
