 Download speedachieved during the test was - 1.72 Mbps
 For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 0.8 Mbps-2 Mbps.
 IP Profile for your line is - 1.55 Mbps

2. Upstream Test: -provides background information.

Recently our Connection has been dropping every time someone rings the house phone. It doesent happen everytime, on some days itl be fine but on others it will kill the connection garenteeable everytime. I am loath to go through the nromal method of ringing support etc as we have been through this situation many times without them actualy fixing it. I just get the normal answering questions off a sheet etc. The last time we had switched to vdsl but had to go back to adsl as the saleperson had failed to realise we were to far away from the cabinate to actualy get decent vdsl.

Re: Sudden drop in Ping but big reduction in DL speed at the same time

You are aware you can get faster total broadband which would give you speeds of between 14.9 and 20meg?

Re: Sudden drop in Ping but big reduction in DL speed at the same time

If you mean fiber to the cab then yes I'm aware of it. The issue is im over 3km from the cab. So I wont get tht speed ill get less speed than ADSL.

 

As I said above we tried FTTC a while a go and it was a flop due to the distance to cab. 

 

Unless theve changed the protocols to the longer distance ones there's no point in me trying FTTC again

Re: Sudden drop in Ping but big reduction in DL speed at the same time

Ah that's a shame. You must also be quite some distance from your distribution point too. Are you quite rural?

LR-VDSL (long reach) is very much still in early trials at the moment.

It is of course possible that your line has been moved to a new cabinet or an infil cabinet has been installed.

The above check estimates 15-20meg for FTTC. Is that the same as it showed last time?

Re: Sudden drop in Ping but big reduction in DL speed at the same time

TBH I cant remember the exact speeds I should of got last time I checked. Yes we are very rural, Exchange is about 5km away and the cab is 3km away. LR-VDSL is indeed my last hope rofl.

 

Is there a way to check where the cab you are on is located? I am sure we use to be on cabinet 3.

 

 edit:  test showed cab 6

Re: Sudden drop in Ping but big reduction in DL speed at the same time

Ok so cabinet 6 seems to be a brand new cabinet. I would guess that your line has been shuffled around and now goes through this new cabinet.

The fact you say it previously showed you as cab 3 further backs this up. I'm not sure where it is but with your speed estimated it's probably within 1500m or so of you.

Might just be worth an order for total faster broadband again, you might be pleasantly surprised.
