I have Unlimited Bt Infinity 2
A few months ago my BT HH5 started disconnecting various times throughout the day (Especially in the evenings). My broadband speed gradually started to decrease aswell and now it is at a ridiculous 5mbps dowload speed and 3/4mbps upload speed.
I read quite a few posts on these forums and found it a common ocurrance that the HH5 disconnects frequently and because i am out of contract i would have to purchase a new one for £99. Instead i decided to purchase a Netgear Nighthawk AC1900 as a direct replacement. This fixed the connection issues as my internet no longer disconnected since i purchased the new router. However the very low speeds still remain the same.
I was on the phone before i purchased the new router and they said everything was ok with the line from their end. Since the new router i was on the Live Chat assistance and once again everything was fine from their end and they recommended i get an engineer in to check. I don't want to risk calling one and having to pay £130. I know they won't charge me if they find that the fault is not within my property.
I've done a quiet test and it was silent. I do speed tests throughout the day and it is consistant throughout the day.

It is very possible that if you were getting repeated disconnects that DLM (Dynamic Line Management) has reduced your speeds in an attempt to maintain a stable connection.
If that is the case and your line is now stable and the disconnects have stopped DLM will slowly start to increase the speed again. This can however take weeks or even months to get back to the speeds that you had, if indeed it does get back to that speed.
Can you run this checker and post back a screen shot of the results. Make sure you delete your phone number before posting.
Can you also post the connection stats from your router.
Where do i go for the Router stats? sorry i am a bit of a noob with technology lol.
When i spoke on the Live Chat earlier today they asked me to switch routers to my HH5 to do the checks and has since been connected to HH5. Surely that will also not help with stability?
