I currently have Superfast Fibre 2 but the real speeds are way below the estimates, and still way below the estimates for Fibre 1. If I moved to Fibre 1 to save a few pounds, would the real speeds stay the same, go down, or it's anyone's guess?

Seems a bit better today. I can never get the BT speed checker to work; Zoopla says 44.5 down, 8.1 UP.

Thanks to all. When we got fibre in our village I kept a detailed log of speeds. It started at 61M, and gradually declined to 40-44. An Openreach man came, it went up to 60.3, and has since declined again. Maybe the electrons are getting tired.
I'm just being mean, I suppose, in trying to save £7.50 a month. The galling thing is another place I know has Fibre 1 and the speeds are 55M always.
It looks as though DLM has banded your line at 49M due to instability. Is there any noise on your line if you do a quiet line test on 17070?
