New to this forum and looking for some advice. Since end of April my speed has dropped to the same speed as last year after a period of improved speed for nearly 6 months after the last incident when this happened. Things improved after I had a chat with a friendly Openreach engineer who had been working on the pole next door to my house.
Given I have a low speed already the difference between 2.4Mb and 1.8Mb can be quite noticeable and latency has also increased noticeably
Line Coding(Trellis): On On
SNR Margin (0.1 dB): 133 170
Attenuation (0.1 dB): 580 315
Output Power (0.1 dBm): 174 123
Attainable Rate (Kbps): 3,024 980
This has changed from when speed was better am I assume probably as a result of works impacting the aluminium/copper when a neighbour had some repairs as the timing is related
Am some 4.5Km from exchange so don't expect great figures but this has made things like my suresignal to fail to operate properly
I am connected to the master socket and the stats I am using to check speeds are based upon my SamKnows box
My resumption is I have to live with this slowdown and if I call BT nothing will be changed due to the guaranteed minimum quoted of 1.5Mb when I signed up and this is within tolerance
Any thoughts welcome
Understand entirely about not re-booting and the relationship with stablity , from reading more widely what I am able to see is SNR margin (0.1dB) does appear to have increased from a best of 49 earlier this year to current 131, which I suspect is the culprit and its been gently climbing over the past 2 weeks or so from 115.
