I live in a rural area.
We have BT Broadband which is not the fastest but which is reliable.
On approx. 19/10/2010 we went away for a couple of days.
On returning we have very slow broadband.
Here are some results (using Speedtest.net)
(DATE / DOWNLOAD / UPLOAD / LATENCY)
12/10/2010 - 0.73mb/s - 0.34mb/s - 83ms
14/10/2010 - 0.73mb/s - 0.33mb/s - 85ms
15/10/2010 - 0.73mb/s - 0.31mb/s - 84ms
The above are acceptable. But we have just come back and get these speeds:
23/10/2010 - 0.13mb/s - 0.16mb/s - 922ms
24/10/2010 - 0.11mb/s - 0.29mb/s - 611ms
24/10/2010 - 0.14mb/s - 0.33mb/s - 205ms
Nothing has changed at our end (same BT Home Hub in use etc. etc.)
This is the result this morning (24/10/10) using the BT speedchecker:
Download speedachieved during the test was - 102 Kbps
For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 50-500 Kbps.
Your DSL Connection Rate :512 Kbps(DOWN-STREAM), 448 Kbps(UP-STREAM)
IP Profile for your line is - 350 Kbps
I realise we'll never get blistering speeds, but I am concerned about the drop.

Details below (hope this is what you wanted).
ADSL line status
|Connection time||6 days, 17:19:56|
|Noise margin (Down/Up)||20.1 dB / 13.0 dB|
|Line attenuation (Down/Up)||63.5 dB / 31.5 dB|
|Output power (Down/Up)||14.2 dBm / 12.4 dBm|
|Loss of Framing (Local)||49|
|Loss of Signal (Local)||9|
|Loss of Power (Local)||0|
|FEC Errors (Down/Up)||3768 / 744|
|CRC Errors (Down/Up)||90 / 2147480000|
|HEC Errors (Down/Up)||nil / 444|
|Error Seconds (Local)||3020|
You need to get that SN margin down if possible as with 63 attenuation indicating a fairly long line its the only way to increase sync speed
Have you tried a quite line test from master or test socket
dial 17070 option 2 and listen - should hear nothing
best done with old type analogue phone digital will do but may have slight hiss
do not use home hub phone
and look at this may help
I'll look into that.
I know that we live almost at the 'end of line' from the exchange so accept we're never going to get the quickest broadband.
But I can really 'feel' the drop from 0.7mbps.
It'll be interesting to see if it improves during weekdays.
