Just been on the phone to Praneetha, for 50 MINUTES!
Summary reset router 3 times - check
Reset PC 3 times whilst hitting F8 - yeah nice one.
"your broadband is within limits - thankyou"
OMG Never in my life have I been witness to such dreadful technical help. Technical help with BT is an untrained phone operator wotking off a check sheet, fact.
Last week, I cancelled BT TV as it was appalling.
I did say I wish to keep the broadband because since I bought my own router to replace the IHUB 5 its been awesome.
An hour later my speed was reduced to 30mb/s even though for the last 12 months I have been getting 60mb/s.
What a joke BT, and now theryre saying that my contract (which was 12 months) is now 18month. So Im tied in until June.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Oh, so nothing to do with the broadband then.
Does your Homehub replacement give you line stats?
Ive put the original HUB 5 back on to see if it got better again.
I know whats happened when I cancelled the TV they have downgraded my broadband to Infinty 1 speeds. My aqccount still says Infinity 2 so the tech experts wont look past that and make sure im getting the full speed for whatever reason.
Actually the reason is because it isn't on there checklist which they anally go down.
I presume someone got confused with the subsequent discusion on BT TV ... I've alerted the mods who can sort it out.
Use this speed tester then carry out the further diagnostics and post back a screen shot of all the results including your IP profile for up and down. This test must be done with a wired connection.
This will show your IP profiles which will show which Infinity you are on. The Up IP profile for Infinity 1 is 10 Mbps and Infinity 2 is 20Mbps.
As you have a Homehub 5 can you also post the stats from 1-12 by logging onto the homehub management pages then troubleshooting > helpdesk. http://bthomehub.home/
