I had my broadband and the phone line installed 17.01.17. When I was signing to a contract my estimated broadband speed according to the website suppose to be between 2.5 -6.5Mbs, and should not be less than 1.5Mbs. Since day of service installation, broadband speed did not reach guaranteed minimal speed, either on wired or wireless devices. I’m using BT wholesale broadband speed test website and average download speed is bellow 1Mbs. Several phone calls and line checks done by phone centre staff in the UK and offshore show no phone line problems. And according to them i should have on average 4.7Mbs. I had my internal wiring changed on 08.02.17. but outreach engineer could not perform snr-reset. He spent 2h on the phone with his technical support team and they said to him that my broadband is restricted by my service provider. He also checked phone line from my property to the exchange centre and according to his entire test there were no faults on the phone line. Outreach engineer said that there is no need for another engineers inspections, he also advised me that I need to phone my service provider (BT) and ask them to increase my service rate speed, which I did on the same day. Staff from offshore phone centre informed me that it will be done and I need to wait for 72 hours for the change in broadband speed to take place. So I was back on the phone on Monday 13.02.17, this time I was connected to the UK based phone centre in Swansea. According to lady on the phone, hers tests showed that there was a fault with the phone line, so she requested another engineer’s visit to check external phone lines. So I had another engineers visit on 15.02.17 and on this occasion tests show that there were no faults identified with phone lines, and job was marked as resolved. Sadly my broadband speed is still bellow 1Mbs. What is very disappointing with contacting BT phone centres is that on every occasion I’m being informed that my package details are different to the one I signed to. On one occasion I was told that I’m Fibre-optic costumer, on other occasion I’ve been informed that I’m on fixed speed of 1Mbs. And every point of contact with BT I need to go through security checks and full phone line checks, to be informed that another engineer’s visit is required, or that I’m on slower speed deal and need to upgrade etc (average time spent on the phone or through online chat is in about 30 min). What is even more frustrating my neighbours are also BT costumers and they are only 20m closer to the exchange point and the broadband speed is on average 2.5-4.7Mbs. Even today when I logged on to the BT website and try to buy new broadband on my existing phone line, I am being informed that my average speed will be between 2.5-6.5Mbs. Can anybody please let me know what else can I do to improve my broadband speed?
Solved! Go to Solution.
only found this one
18:55:38, 15 Feb. DSL Link Up: Down Rate=1152Kbps, Ip Rate=288Kbps; SNR Margin Down=32.9dB, Up=31.0dB
i can't find nothing looking like those one bellow:
19:11:29, 07 Nov. (2290101.460000) DSL noise margin: 7.00 dB upstream, 6.10 dB downstream
19:11:29, 07 Nov. (2290101.390000) DSL line rate: 448 Kbps upstream, 288 Kbps downstream
Phoned 17070 option 2 and dont know what I'm looking for but there was barely audible hum. I did need to put my speaker in headset to maximum to be capable to hear that hum.
Hi @Arahnofobia and thanks for posting.
