Re: FTTP Problems - 0.86Mbps down

He seems to be saying there is one strand of fibre which either works or it doesn't so it's not fibre damage as it's working for some.

The fact is there is more than 1 strand of fibre.

Re: FTTP Problems - 0.86Mbps down

Are those areas FTTP as well or FTTC?

Re: FTTP Problems - 0.86Mbps down

FTTC in Bletchley - I've seen two users reporting issues with speed slow downs there.

FTTP in Newton Leys - very similar problem to Walnut Tree.

It's back with BTW who are investigating again. It does surprise me that so many people have reported the problem, had engineers out on multiple occasions, yet they do not appear to have figured out the geographic connection in these problems.

Re: FTTP Problems - 0.86Mbps down

That is strange, like you said, seperate exchanges 😕

 

Makes me wonder what sort of monitoring or lack of they have for network traffic in the exchange, surely they would see a large drop in traffic on certain bits of kit.

 

When my internet went down last time, a device I have on my network was still working, I know it doesn't use masses of bandwidth, but it's quite time critical, in the sense of if it doesnt receive a reply, it stops doing what it does. Could it be down to some throttling they are doing (wrongly).

 

Next time it happens I will have to try and shunt a load of data around using non standard ports and via vpn to see if that does anything.

Re: FTTP Problems - 0.86Mbps down

And this morning the same problems are back.... anyone else having problems?

 

Sadly, this also means the problems will also likely be gone when the BT engineer comes tomorrow morning.

Re: FTTP Problems - 0.86Mbps down

Have you tried doing the further test when your speeds are really low using the BT Speed Tester? It gives you a new login to try.

Re: FTTP Problems - 0.86Mbps down

I'm in work at the mo, but the test I ran was the BTW test and came in at 0.68Mbps. I tried to run the next stage of the test and it gave me an error saying it could not be run at this time.

I'll run some more tests when I'm back home this evening. My broadband may have had troubles last night, but I wasn't using it so don't actually know.
