Re: BT BT Broadband Option 2 Issues

Thanks John46, lets see what happens in the next few days. That could be useful. (Am bothered that according to thinkbroadband, people are getting 4-6 mbps 2 streets away)

Re: BT BT Broadband Option 2 Issues

different attenuation different line lengths different copper thickness and some parts of the network being aluminium cabling less efficient than copper different cable routing simple as that there are too many variables even neighbours can have different attenuation figures there is really nothing you can do to improve it other than the costly one move nearer to the exchange

Re: BT BT Broadband Option 2 Issues

Thanks again,

 

I understand the variances - just hard to live with when its you that's being impacted. 

 

That's a case for another day I think. Constant line speed, Good IP Profile etc. are what i would like to see happen in the coming week to ten days.

 

Enjoy your evening.

Download speedachieved during the test was - 1379 Kbps
For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 400-2000 Kbps.

I'll continue to monitor, though i still want to get my SNRM sorted and 63dB is to much. I'll hope that thats comes down soonish.  Thanks for the advice all!

Re: BT BT Broadband Option 2 Issues

btspeedtester is looking good.  I presume you mean your attenuation at 63db which you are not happy about not SNRM

Noise Margin12.1 db17.0 db

 

The downstream NM is coming down .1 dB each day, not sure what to make of that tbh.

Re: BT BT Broadband Option 2 Issues

the noise margin will fluctuate during the day being higher in the morning to 4pmish and the it will drop gradually by about 2/3 over the night only for it to rise again the next morning.  the cycle then starts again.

 

if you maintain a stable connection then your noise margin should drop with possibly a small increase in your speed.  as said before the normal is about 6db
