Welcome to the community forum.
I'll be able to take a look at your connection. Please can you send me in your details using the "Contact The Mods" link found in my profile?
Thank you for sending in your details. I gave your home number a quick call, I'm sorry I din't get speaking to you. I let a message to let you know I called.
I've ran a few checks on your line and the upload profile had been banded. I've reset the profile and as long as the connection remains stable you should notice an improvement over the next 24 hours.
If you need anything else, please get back to me.
Thank you so much Paddy
Upload now back up to 1,101 kbps (from 444 kbps).
For future reference, what would have caused my profile to become banded? Is there anything I can do to prevent it happening again?
Really appreciate your help.
Thank you for posting back. I'm glad to see that your upload speed has increased.
Banding is applied to the line by the DLM (Dynamic Line Management) system. The DLM will react to errors, normally caused interference on the line. This is to insure the stability of the connection.
Tracing the cause of the interferance can be tricky and in most case it can picked up by the internal set up or wiring. The easiest way to rule out your internal set up is to connected directly to the test socket, using a micro filter as this should by pass any internal wiring.
Check for noise on the line which may help identify the problem by doing a "quiet line test".
(Dial 17070 and select option 2).
If you see the speed drop again, please post back your router stats and I'll be happy to take a look at them for you.
Can you please help me, too?
I have had similar issue, only my issue is a drop in download speed commensurate with avtivation date of BT contract extension. (no, not a new contract, merely agreed to extend same exact service).
Similar to this user, I am frustrated that every time the contract gets extended, my profile/settings seems to get tinkered with and the result is sudden/permanent drop in download speed.
please see my post for all the data checks you require.
Very Frustrated, as this has been on-going, unresolved issue since 1 September.
thanks in advance!
