1st time post, so please go easy.
I have been getting a poor Broadband connection rate for 4 weeks now. I have had an Openreach Engineer out twice, who has agreed there is nothing wrong in my internal wiring, and he goes away and 24 hours later, i have an improved speed for about 2 days, then it drops off again.
This is the latest info from the BT test
The Performance Tester is now testing Broadband connection. Your configured download throughput speed for this service is 135 k
Download speed achieved during the test was - 93 Kbps
For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 50-250 Kbps.
Your DSL Connection Rate :3264 Kbps(DOWN-STREAM), 448 Kbps(UP-STREAM)
IP Profile for your line is - 135 Kbps
Now from doing some net researching i understand that my line IP profile is the problem, but what do i do next time I phone the BT call centre for help ??
I dont want to go round the usual tests, to be told that i have a problem and they will look into it.
Can anyone arm me with some more information before i do.
I am connected using an ethenet cable and using the BT home hub 2.0
How long has your router been continuously connected to your broadband? Or have you been resetting the router in the hope that the profile would increase?
It normally takes 3 days of being continuously connected before the profile changes
This is similar to TobesEtc post
Its has been plugged in now for 5 days without touching it or turning off etc.
It just seems that i am going round in circles with BT at the moment
Maybe one of the mods can look into your case especially if you have been connected contiuously for 5 days. My experience is that mine usually resets to the correct level after 3 days connected at the same speed. This site will let you see what your profile should be for your downstream speed http://www.kitz.co.uk/adsl/IPprofile.htm
Welcome to the forums.
Yeah if the hubs been constantly connected then it looks like the IP profile is stuck. I'll see if I can give this a nudge and get you back on track.
Could you email me your BT account and telephone number please along with a link back to this thread.
I hate those god **bleep** indians do bt think were stupid i **bleep**ing hate them **bleep** them.

Takes lots of reading but you can prove your not getting the service your contract stats then you should get a full refund.
Luky for me bt is breaching its contract with me leaving me with an easy way out free of charge and then Im free to use the new adsl2 service just installed in my area last month.
