We've had some serious issues with internet speed where I live, unable to do things like gaming or downloading music, on average getting speeds of about 50 kB/s.
The line was fine until I had to move rooms (was previously getting speeds of 500 kB/s +), have been connected in the new room since the 24th November, and not had good internet since then.
Have called customer service twice now, first time they said they would do something with the line, and to call back 48 hours later if the issue was not resolved. As you can guess... the issue was not resolved so I called back again, this time they said they would try something else (something to do with resetting the line). This second phone call was made on the Monday, and they promised me that they would ring me on Wednesday to see if the issue has been resolved; I never received this phone call and find it terrible customer service that BT isn't following up with one of their customers when they are clearly having issues that are not being resolved.
I think the issue has something to do with the line coming from our nearest telephone mast/pole, the line goes around our building and is actually used to connect about 5 different rooms. One of the rooms that has it's own individual line from the telephone mast is getting acceptable speeds.
Ideally I would like for an engineer to come out and have a look at the problem, and the only reason I'm even writing on here is because it is clear that calling the indian call centre help desk clearly gets me no where.
Can a mod/admin tell me what procedure I need to follow to actually get some results? So far have not got a good impression of BT and will be leaving them at the first opportunity unless this problem gets resolved.
Forgot to add, that speeds first thing in the morning are acceptable (500kB/s +), most likely a time when absolutely no one else is using the line from the telephone mast. I shouldn'y expect my signal to degrade so badly simply because someone else in another room, not paying towards my internet, has started to use theirs.
in order for the forum members to help please can you post the adsl stats from your router may need to 'show detail' to get all stats (if hub enter 192.168.1.254 in your browser and navigate to adsl or use a-z, if netgear enter 192.168.0.1) and run btspeedtester (MAC users may have problems) http://speedtester.bt.com or http://bt.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/9354/c/346,4740,5520 and post the results .
are you connected directly 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
do you share the line with others? when you say change rooms are you still using same broadband? if so which room has the master socket - 1st socket after BT wires enter home?
Someone may then be able to offer help/assistance/suggestions to your problem

The line could be the problem, because that one line coming from the pole goes around the building, and that line is then broken off to each room it needs to get to along the way. Would much rather have an engineer come out and install a fresh line to my room if that turns out to be the problem.
