thank you for your reply john but this will still mean it could be wednesday before they even reply to me which would mean 5 days without an internet connection working properly which is very annoying and also highly inconvenient and also in my eyes a breach of contract.
A company the size of bt with the profits they make should provide a lot better customer service than this, i work in the retail industry and if we had customer care and support like this we would go out of business and the company i am with is a lot smaller than bt.
also if changing to interleaving could help sort this issue then why can't, what is "supposed" to be, tech support solve it on the phone or on the online chat system they have.
Broadband still not right as it is only running between 1.5 mbs and 2.5 mbs when it used to be 7 mbs. looking at the hub details all that has been done is that bt have turned up the noise margin therefore decreasing speed but covering up any faults in the line and not actually fixing them.
Also after doing some checking i only live 1900 meters from the exchange so my downstream line attenuation of 46 seems high and should be closer to 26 which is what my upstream attenuation is so is there any way that my downstream attenuation can be changed to increase my speed as at the moment it looks like my speed is being throttled.

your line is obviously not running the shortest distance to the exchange and with your current attenuation you are about 3.3km line length from the exchange but should still be able to get about 6.5/7mb connection speed
currently your stats show conenction speed of 4.4mb but with a higher than normal noise margin of 13db. your high noise margin is probably due to noise on your line as shown by high number of crc/hec errors which also be causing slow download speeds. you speed is not being throttled but the noise on your line is causing you a problem
then i have to ask why line attenuation for upstream is 26 which equates to about the 1.9 km from the exchange
it's your downstream attenuation which gives approximate line length eg mine current up is 23.8db but I am 47db down and I am about same as you from exchange 3.3/3.4km
in case mods check this thread just did a speed test and came back with these results i don't understand why it is saying max speed for my line is 4 mbs and also why my ip profile is 3.5 mbs as i have been getting 7 mbs +/- 300 kbs since last november which i can get the proof of from speedtest.net as use them quite often to keep a check on speeds.
