Re: Extremely Slow Broadband & Very High Ping Rate

Hi both @RobbieMac & @john46, sorry I've not received any form of acknowledgement of sending of a message. In the meantime I've had BT India contacting in regards to the 'fault' -  have ignored so far as of John's suggesting.

 

However our internet is now virtually unusable now, I've just about managed to get on these forums. 700 ping rate, 0.23dl & 0.22 up!!

Re: Extremely Slow Broadband & Very High Ping Rate

Good Evening, 

Just wanted to confirm our internet has slowed down even further over the past week to the point where we have no internet.
 
Yesterday after running a speed test - we achieved an impressive 2600 ping, 0.00 Download speeds and 0.28 Upload Speeds
 
Today after a router restart, the ping rate had died down slightly to an okay 69 ping - however download speeds we’re still 0.71.
 
After checking the BT Home Hub it appears we are still connected to ADSL
 
Interestingly, looks like Open Reach have also ‘downgraded’ our current ADSL connection from an ‘okay’ 2-4mb download to a messily max of 1mm on their checker.
 
Really need to get this sorted, so that we have a stable internet connection that works. Is there anything that we need to do our end to switch over to the higher speed connection on VDSL; as opposed to ADSL Max?
 
Thank you!

Re: Extremely Slow Broadband & Very High Ping Rate

Thanks @NeilO & @john46 , @RobbieMac was assisting with this and had advised my farther (the account holder) via email that an Open Reach engineer would visit the local cabinet on the 1st of September (today) to switch over the cables from ADSL to VDSL.

 

I have sent him over a reply via email - however not sure if this goes direct to him or not; hence posting on here also covering all bases.

 

The question is, should I need to do anything our end/ router end to switch from adsl to vdsl - as the router is still showing adsl DL speeds are still less then 1mb download etc?

 

Thanks for your helpm

Aaron.
