I wish BT Wholesale would just make things like current line target noise margins and line profile band clearly available to customers via the speed checker or modem stats. Would save a lot of guesswork!
the Billion does let you select a % reduction but I don't think you can actually select a noise margin
trying from test socket will help with new stats
Right tried from the test socket and no difference at all.
The Billion is on auto SNR - should I just set it to a target of 6?
I have tried with the HH5 too and that was no different but the Billion has lower attenuation on the line compared to the HH5 and the Internet connection is more stable. When running a speed test the HH5 would peak at the start and then drop off rapidly. The Billion just has an almost constant flat rate of transfer.
Pity you didn't stay in test socket and post stats whether billion or hh5. Need to select either but then connect to preferably test and stay there for at least 3 days to show connection stable
Both the Billion and HH5 were stable for several days or more at a time without reboot.
So what should I do next I am a little confused.
