Ive had an engineer who tested the line and was getting these rates in the cabinet itself! He says they swapped me to a new port and the rate at the cab was flat out but left before it activated so couldn't test at house. He did swap my external box and fitted the split master socket so running out of ideas.
Any ideas? Help desk is hard to deal with and took 3 weeks to get an engineer.
From the stats you have posted I cannot see how with an attenuation od 21.9db that you will get anywhere near estimated speed so either estimate is well out or there is a line problem
have you any rough idea how far you are from the street cabinet
Thanks for the reply. I'm about 120m from the cabinet.
would the engineer have seen the high attenuation on his tester? He didn't say anything when he was here.
If you are that close and even allowing for a bit of deviation of the cable to your home, unless on poles and you can see it, the checker estimate would appear to be reasonable and your stats far to low - probably line problem. did engineer say anything about aluminium cable?
He didn't say anything about aluminium but was surprised it was low speed. What he did say was the cabinet wiring was shockingly bad.
Do do you think it's worth getting them back or do you think it will train up?
I would certainly want an engineer visit to get your speed up to estimate as it will not reach anywhere near that without help. Phone customer services and get engineer visit. Don't let them put you off by saying they will monitor your line for 24/48hrs as that is just time wasted. If they cannot get your speed up to estimate then you have right to cancel with no charge
