I know this is a frequentl topic I have gone through all the fixes and countermeasures of previous messages.
My down loads speed is 0.25MPS and upload 0.67Mps ping latency ms 50.75.
I have a hub3 connected via a BT filter to a BT open reach socket.
The Hub is on 24/7.
I have tried connecting via the test socket, checked the wiring without any improvement.
The annoying thing is that sometimes the broadband remains connected at other times it drops frequently (every couple of minutes).
What can I try next?

It is possible that any problem you are currently, or had previously experienced may have been caused by traffic congestion on the Internet or by the server you were accessing responding slowly.

The hub ADSL data is here:
Due to hub disconnections /restarts you are in a banded profile. you now need to maintain a stable connection with no hub restarts for the next 3/5 days and you should then lift out of the banding automatically

Thanks for the help I will see how it goes over the comming days.
It looks like I have a line problem as the connection keeps dropping. When I checked the ADS stats this morning having had the router connected 24/7 it showed a connection time of 1 hour 47 minutes and then dropped the connecetion as I was watching the ADS stats.
I think the line problem is weather related as today it is wet and windy.
Do you know how to get this type of problem fixed?
Thanks for the reply. The quiet test came up OK.
I have now had a stable broad band connection with no drop outs for more that a day through the test socket.
It looks like my speed has been capped by BT as a result of previous drop outs.
I am going to leave it in the test socket for a few days to see if the cap comes off.
Is there any problems with using the test socket?
What is the difference between the tes socket and the normal socket?
