Hi there I've seen few posts similar to this,but thought I'd post my own.For the last 2 weeks my broadband speed has dropped drastically.I can't even stream t.v. and just about listen to radio.I tested my speed today and it was 0.3 mbps when it shoud be 14.0 mbps.I have always had problem with drop out but this is the first time i've had such slow speeds.I had a engineer out recently who checked my phone line and fitted a specail filter on my line.
If there i anyone in a similar postion,who had it resolved or not ? would be great to here from you.I'm also wondering if I should be entitled to a refund from b.t. as I'm paying for a service,there not providing ?

in order for the forum members to help please can you post the adsl stats from your router may need to 'show detail' to get all stats (if hub enter 192.168.1.254 in your browser and navigate to adsl or use a-z, if netgear enter 192.168.0.1) and run btspeedtester (MAC users may have problems) bt speedtester and post the results .
are you connected directly via a filter to the NTE5 master or test socket or to somewhere else? Is the master the only phone socket in your home?
Have you tried the quiet line test? - dial 17070 option 2 - should hear nothing - best done with a corded phone. if cordless phone you may hear a 'dull hum' which is normal
Someone may then be able to offer help/assistance/suggestions to your problem
when I tried the quiet line test I could hear crackling.Here are asdl line status results,any help would be appreciated thanks.
did you try the test socket by connecting a filter and then your router and phone. then try the quiet line test again and make sure there is still a crackle on the line. if you do connect to test socket can you post new stats please
Thanks too anyone who replied,I will try to resolve the crackling on line and see if that sorts out broadband.I did have a engineer out few months ago who tested the socket and put a new one in,but seems like still having problems.To be honest I've had nothing but problems with b.t. broadband,probably time to change,they just don't seem to be any good!
have your stats improved since your previous set? can you post up to date stats please?
phoned them again, the usual trying to make out it's something wrong at your place wiring etc,engineer needs to come out,guess what,can't even get a conveniant time.Had nothing but problems with b.t. it's unreal how bad there custumer service is.If it's not resolved this time.I am cancelling my contract with them.
are your router stats still as bad as your initial set? if so can you post a new set please
