Re: Do BT Throttle Internet Connections?

You are very lucky.  My download speed is 3.66mbps but my UPLOAD speed is only 0.009 mbps.


I also have a noisy phone line for speech, so it may be that noise on the line is slowing me down with retries.


How did you get the detailed report complete with noise levels and errors?

Re: Do BT Throttle Internet Connections?

welcome to the BT community forum where customers help customers and only BT employees are the forum mods


I moved your post to start your own subject to avoid confusing replies with the other post originator

in order for the forum members to help please can you post the adsl stats from your router (unlessHH4/5) may need to 'show detail' to get all stats (if hub enter in your browser and navigate to adsl or use a-z, if netgear enter and run  btspeedtester  (MAC users may have problems). when first test completes then run diagnostic test and post the results .

are you connected directly via a filter to the NTE5 master or test socket or to somewhere else? Is the master the only phone socket in your home?

Have you tried the quiet line test? - dial 17070 option 2 - should hear nothing - best done with a corded phone. if cordless phone you may hear a 'dull hum' which is normal

Someone may then be able to offer help/assistance/suggestions to your problem
