the installation of fibre should not affect your adsl connection
That's what I assumed also. Nice to have some clarification on it.
Then I saw this and thought it can't be congestion surely as it shows full speed from the exchange?
Then... that page is completely misleading using 2 metrics and declaring one.
Should say somthing like...
This is your MAX line speed: 8.13Mbps and is currently 'x' up and 'y' down.
It makes it look like my line is 'congested' between my hub and pc where it slows form 8 to less than 1Mbps. which is 6 feet of Adsl/Cat5e ethernet cable. Then trying to blame the speeds on the user for their internal wiring haha.
TY for insight though.
Might aswell post this while I'm here, (Tested at time of post, when I'm going to bed and it's too late to use it ofc.)
Day time speeds improving but night time still <1Mbps
No contact from mods as of yet, still early though.
Still, you have to admit that it's extremely odd how for 4 years I never had these problems on the exact same line, same house BUT different supplier/router.
I could easily get 4-5Mbps during PEAK (7-8 Mbps Off peak) times with Sky now with BT it grinds to 0.5 - 1.5Mbps, in the current world with the average home user connecting with more and more devices (mobiles, consoles, pc's) that speed is simply pathetic.
I am getting 33% of the speeds I was getitng before. one third...There has been no influx of 'served premises' at my exchange (It's been about 600 for 4 years)
The only factor in this is BT and their Routing...Sorry but it's true!
**Also worth noting that with Sky I had a consistent 20-50ms ping, which was great for gaming now I'm lucky if I get 50 durnig slow times, it's normally about 100 which is terrible for gaming.
I may be onto something but not sure.
I have an extension box (small single plug one not the actual BT Boxes) installed in my house (un-used), tried to use it years ago but line was dead.
On inspection (and some googling) I see that the extension is connected to the back of the faceplate (ie) the faceplate comes right off with no wires when I detach) ((This is wrong?)) On closer inspection (but not opening) I see that 2 wires are in use (white with blue and blue with white) however I see one of the wires isn't connected at all.
Could this be the reason behind that socket not working?
Maybe also the reason behind my instability?
And...What's the rules on opening the back up, to detach that cable and buying a punch tool to attach it to the faceplate correctly so I'm able to completely seperate my phone/broadband lines.
This is what the extension looks like:
The plug end being hard wired into the back of the BT Master socket (basic, not Openreach one) and is all fitted around doorframes and cable tacked into the walls (looks professionaly done except the connections aha)
