your old pair was noisy hence why engineer did a lift and shift even swapping pair from an existing line albeit customer late paying bill
I hear what you are saying.
If I can get one line to hold on to a connection at 0.4db Down SNR Margin for at least a year, with no drops (other than power outages and forced reboots) then I'm sure going to.
Yes this is a different pair and I've accounted for that when I've been tweaking, it has been fine.
My bet is either a BTW engineer has gone a bit ham fisted in the cab or at the exchange and altered a connection or since it is billing time my pair has been knicked back!
Look I understand your point and I realise that I have little choice but reset my SNR to a "sensible" level, but it doesn't chnage that something external has happend in the last 48 Hrs which has degraded the quality of my line and it's potential and the profile has been lowered at the exchange..
Sorry if I sound annoyed, I realise this is not of your making and that my ranting is completely futile!
I think the pair you have is the best the engineer could get bearing how he aquired it otherwise you would have been stuck with your existing pair that was the problem or another pair which were just as bad in that sense you are lucky that line is quiet
Just **bleep** shoot me, I've beaten my head against BT's wall enough. I'm just a guy trying to get a fair quality service and I know that it is never going to happen; at least not whilst BT's monopoly exists in less profitable regions!
Don't worry, I'm done wasting my time. I just wish there was an alternative, if there were proper competition then I'd be treated like a customer and not like a hypochondriac at the GP's.
Thanks for your time, I'll just have to sit and wait for the next inevitable fault and then when BT can't steal another line they'l consider upgrading its ancient failing network; or probably not!
My sync has miraculously, partially, recovered:
|DSP Firmware Version||A2pB025f.d22k|
|DMT Status||No Defect|
Yet, I'm stuck at 14.5 down speed it seems, granted it's only been 20 hours since the improved re-sync', but I just wanted to ask if the line profile will uplift automatically or do I need to request intervention?
