Just under two weeks ago our broadband speeds crashed through the floor. I have been having regular conversations with BT Customer Care via Twitter but they just maintain that there are no faults their end and that we are getting stable speeds within the expected range to our hub. In the 3 years since we've been with BT we've been getting download speeds of around 3-5Mbps. It's currently under 1Mbps although we still appear to be getting 3-4 via ethernet so the problem seems to be a sudden wireless interference ? It's our upload speeds which are the real problem - even BT's own speed test, done via an ethernet connection yesterday, only reported an upload speed of 0.03Mbps !! I can't even attach a PDF to an email. I have done all the checks, tweaks, channel changes etc suggested by BT, all to no avail and BT just keep saying we're getting what is agreed in our contract and they don't guarantee upload speeds. So I still have no idea what has caused the situation or how to put it right...
Solved! Go to Solution.
I can't post a screenshot as I'm unable to upload anything at the moment. The result of the performance test done yesterday via ethernet was:
Download speed (Mbps): 4.80
Upload speed (Mbps) : 0.03
Ping latency (ms): 37706
Not sure if this is what you need ? I had to borrow an adaptor in order to connect the ethernet cable but I have now ordered one for myself which should arrive on Friday.
Thanks for your help - I have already had to resort to sending files on a flashdrive via Royal Mail because I can't even attach anything to an email !
Have you tried a factory reset of hub by pressing recessed button on back and holding 20/30 secs until lights flash
@rose59 thanks for taking my call.
I have reset your broadband profile as there doesn't look to be any underlying issues with the broadband or the phone line. It may take a few days for the line to stabilise.
An updated hub has also been popped in the post as you have had the current one a fair few years. Please don't connect this hub just yet.
Any questions let me know?
Look forward to speaking to you early next week.
Thanks for your assistance Matt - I have noticed the difference already and have managed to send some documents via email at last ! One question... I split our SSIDs and turned off smart wireless to select channels manually... can I go back to the default settings now ?
Happy to help @rose59 .
I wouldn't make any changes to the hub settings at the moment. Once we have confirmed the connection to be stable we can connect the new hub which will have been set up with default settings from the factory.
Thanks for taking my call this morning @rose59
I'm glad that we have been able to fix the slow upload issue by resetting the broadband profile. I very much hope that you don't have any issues in the future but if you do please let us know here on the Community.
