Can I join this thread as I am having a similar problem?
ADSL and with BT Broadband for several years and usual download is 0.8 – 0.9 mbps but this has dropped to around 0.3 mbps and sometimes 0.1 mbps for the last 5 days. Upload always higher best 0.8 mbps. Time of day makes no difference so assuming not congestion/contention.
Just BT tested with the Hub 5 connected to the master socket and a direct connection to the computer and results 44.75 Ping, 0.28 down load and 0.74 upload.
Trying the usual with BT help but not getting any better
WDC ADSL 2 up to 5.5 rate; -- upstream, 4.5 to 6.5 range
WDC ADSL 2
Annex M up to 5.5 up to 1 4.5 to 6.5
WDC Fixed rate 2
Fixed Rate 2
Equipment seems ok – the hub light is steady blue – seems to be three possibilities
Problem at the exchange, problem somewhere between the exchange and the road junction box ; somewhere from where the line enters my property and the hub? Or are there other possibilities??
BTW Performance Test
Download 0.29 mbps upload 0.77 mbps Ping 31.25
