I recently reported a problem with our broadband, slow speed and frequent lost connection. The connection can drop for a fraction of a second but enough to disrupt whatever you're doing, makes it impossible to watch anything by streaming. If I'm on my computer and anyone else uses the internet, then my computer will drop the connection, its a real pain.
I spoke to a very nice lady few days back, maybe 5 or 6. she was on the phone quite along time, said she'd checked everything and repaired everything at their end. Said she'd leave the fault open so I'd get a call back just to make sure everything was still working ok.
Needless to say there has been no improvement whatsoever and unsurprisingly I haven't had a call back. Tried to track the fault on the website and can't get the page to load.
The downloaded speed in the last 2 days has varied between 2.42 & 10.04, the upload speed between 0.35 & 0.51 and the ping between 44 & 114, most frequently above 65, whenever I speak to anyone they seem disinterested in the ping, but correct me if I'm wrong, this is the rate at which a page refreshs and if so then surely it is actually quite important.
I have tried the quiet line test and I could hear a slight noise but an engineer has previously told us we will always get some noise because of our lines, we are in a small village, I'm not sure if that is why. Incredibly tonight I've had download speeds ranging from 5.29 to 34.21.
5.29 is about average here, I've never seen anything above 6 so how is 34.21 even possible?
Reading one of the other threads I see they had a power cut, we had the electric off 3 weeks ago for about 6 hours, could that be responsible for us having an unstable connection?
