Just out of curiosity, what difference are you expecting to see from a few Mbps increase in speed from 69Mbps? Because unless you are downloading huge (multiGB) files on a regular basis, you will not notice any difference.
I am absolutely positive my cable is not aluminium as if it was my speeds would be nowhere near as high as they are for my attenuation. I also think I am not being misled as the information given in this pdf is almost identical to what is happening on my Hlog graph.
I am going to keep trying to get an engineer out as I reckon I have an issue here.
I would hope that if there was a bridged tap that my speeds may sync at 80/20 and thus I get what I pay for and that when I download large GB files, e.g Games on xbox, updates etc
I can download them as quickly as possible, that’s why I would like the extra speed.
So why would I say I want to pay, as you said above it will be free unless there is nothing found. I am on the pone just now but he is no use, he sending a replacement home hub 5 which I don’t even need. And is ignoring my request to book an engineer.
I said "as that is what you will be charged if they find nothing wrong because your line is within the estimate limits" Perhaps I should have worded it slightly differently. I should have said "as that is what you will be charge because your line is within the estimated liits they will find nothing wrong" and because of that you need to say you want to pay to get an engineer out just to check the line anyway.
So just to confirm if an engineer did come out and finds a fault on the line, and fixes it. I still get charged as my speed is within the estimated limits. As that is what you are telling me.
I, along with the other forum members are advising you that the chances are that there is nothing wrong with your line and if you were able to get an engineer out to check your line, which I doubt you will, you will be charged for it if they do not find a fault.
If you are adamant to get an engineer out to check your line, because there is no fault showing, you will need to pay for it. I have no idea if BT/Openreach would refund the money to you if the did subsequently find I fault. As far as I am aware a bridge tap is not classed as a fault.
Oh ok I understand now, thanks. I’ll see if I can get one as I don’t really mind paying £130 as at least then I can confirm I am getting maximum speed from my line.
Out of interest do you get the maximum speed out of your car or do you not check that and just accept that if it is performing correctly within the parameters that you normally use it then its OK.
you must have money to burn you might as well throw
130.00 on a fire remember speeds are sold as up to speeds not you get full speed
