I did an online speed test on the 6 July 2016 as my broadband speed had dropped from 3.8 Mbps to 200 Kbps. Followed the procedure to make a Fault report. It said that to look back daily to see what was being done to resolve the issue. Looked on the 12 July and it said that the problem had been resolved. The broadband speed is stIll the same at around 200Kbps and the BT online speed test on MyBt app is still reporting it as a fault and should be looked at. It took 3 hours yesterday to download a 136 Mb file, cannot use Netflix or Amazon Prime accounts due to the broadband becoming so poor. What is the point of doing online fault reporting if they are being written off without anything being done. Today I will be ringing BT to either sort out the problem or lose a good customer.
Welcome to this forum.
This is a customer to customer forum only,
This is where customers help each other get the most out of BT products & services.
Anything you post here does not go to BT. Although the forum is moderated by BT, not all posts are read.
Everyone posting here, are just BT customers like myself
I have altered the subject line to remove the fault number, as this is a public forum.
Is your landline phone working, is there any noise on the phone when you dial 17070 and select option 2?
Noise on the phone line will affect broadband. A noisy line fault will still be there whichever provider you use.
Hi, I have done all the tests required as this isn't the first time that my broadband 3.8Mbps as dropped to the equivalent of a 56k modem. I live in a new house with all the wiring meeting the correct standard. I used the My BT app to test the broadband speed and it keeps coming back at <300 Kbps, two weeks ago it was coming back at 3.8 Mbps. I have also had my laptop connected to the Hub4 via cable and it took 3 hours to download a 136 mb file and that was at 5 in the morning just to test the system.
What annoys me the most is having the fault that I reported coming back as resolved by BT when in fact nothing had changed.
I'll be on the phone to BT today and if they cannot restore my 3.8 Mbps broadband then they have lost a customer of long standing. I am having to use my 4g phone as a personal hotspot which gives me 15 Mbps just to download my personal and business emails and to use this forum. I am not getting the service that I am paying for.
as Keith posted this is a customer help customer forum
if you want help from the forum then you need to post some more information

if you now have hh4 can you go to hub manager/troubleshooting/logs wan and post the 2 lines of stats showing your connection speed and noise margin this will be when your hh4 last conencted to the internet
can you run btspeedtester and when first test completes then run diagnostic test and post results must be done with wired connection btspeedtester
can you enter your phone number and post results remember to delete number wholesale FTTC check
try quiet line test dial 17070 option 2 should be quiet and best with corded phone

Quiet line test: Not silent but faint hum.
a dull hum is normal is using a cordless phone
your conenction speed is terrible hence the very low download speed are you currently conencted to the test socket with a new filter and not using a phone extension cable?
if you connect to test socket then check that any extension socket does not have a dial tone
I have not long spoken to a BT Call Centre person who did a diagnostic test with what they have available to connect to my local exchange and found a problem. Engineer booked for mid next week. I'll post whether its been a success or not.
Thank you for your time and advice, much appreciated.
