Same for all broadband customers
Thanks for your reply.
Do you know if, on becoming a BT customer, something in the local exchange has to be done/switched to transfer from previous ISP to BT?
Thanks for the reply.
My router is telling me I'm on VDSL service and I'm 0.7 miles from the cabinet. The VDSL service to my area is further confirmed by my next door neighbours attained speeds of 45meg down and 8.15 meg up.(Also a BT customer)
My speed is 7.9 meg down and 0.547 meg up.
There are 18 properties where I live and all are fed from a single pole which is directly opposite my house on the other side of the road.
Since my connection to BT broadband on 16th April I have had continuous problems on a daily basis with both speed and connection which present in practical terms as long load times of simple webpages like BBC, Yahoo, Facebook, YouTube and buffering of streaming services at medium resolution of 720p and regular dropping and long period buffering of data streaming websites and my Sky tv box
Typically a screenload time of e.g BBC can be between 70 and 90 secs via wifi on 2.4 ghz with a 10ft distance between laptop and router and direct line of sight, only air between the two. When connected to the router by ethernet cable the load times are reduced to approx 20 secs.
When its working properly the load times via wifi are approx 3 secs and via ethernet approx 1 sec.
My router is connected to the master socket.
My next door neighbour has kindly given me access to his broadband so that I can compare the performance of both.
I can connect to his router via wifi which is located approx 30 ft away in his lounge, from my lounge. Our houses are detached from each other so no adjoining wall. In fact I'm connected to his broadband this moment because mine has again stopped working.
When I'm connected to his broadband the performance is exactly as I was expecting from my own broadband service. Fantastic speed and no connectivity issues.
I'm respecting the BT Red Banners and as such I haven't tried to report these issues yet.
In the meantime, any help or suggestions from the Community would be gratefully received.
Ps. I've tried changing DNS settings to no avail
OK, a couple of things to do so we can help you.
Post the connection stats from the hub. Advanced settings/technical log/information.
Do a quiet line test, best with corded phone. 17070 option 2.
Enter your phone number HERE and post the result. Remove phone number before posting.
ok, thanks again for your reply, here's the info:-
Report a noise on line fault. Don't mention braodband or you'll end up in the wrong queue.
Once the noise is sorted out your broadband should improve.
Your max is only 15Mb though. Your neighbour may be supplied via a different cab even though it is the same pole.
Will report tomorrow.
My neighbour is going to give me his landline number so that I can run the DSL report and check his cabinet no.
Do you know if I'll be charged for reporting the noise on the line?
Thanks for your help.
