Re: DSL Checker Speed changes

Thanks for all the info guys. I'll check in with BT tomorrow and see what they say about the matter. I'm still not getting my promised speeds so hopefully they'll see it as something that still needs sorting.

Re: DSL Checker Speed changes

@pippincp: Yes, I know about star-wiring, thanks. When I say "your own home" I do include the BT wiring within your home on the supply side of NTE, not just the consumer's internal wiring. Indeed they're most likely to be on the BT side.

Re: DSL Checker Speed changes

Ok so I told the person from BT that my upload speed had increased but my download was still below what it should be. She then said that another fault has been raised, not sure who by, and is being "fixed" by the DCOE Team??? Not sure who they are. And not sure what the chances are this links into my bridge tap issue. But she said they will have it "fixed" within 48 hours and then the BT helper will ring me early next week for another update.

Re: DSL Checker Speed changes

So what are the chances of this being linked to the bridge tap?? I thought they'd need to come out if it was.

Re: DSL Checker Speed changes

A bridge tap will need physical intervention, if it can be resolved at all. I’m not sure if they all can or not, never really came across one.

Re: DSL Checker Speed changes

Lucky me then! Hopefully, it is something that they will spot and be able to resolve. I'm happy with my speeds because they are still 4-5 times better than what I used to be able to get, but as this will be my max for the next, however many years, I'd like to get the best I possibly can. No point settling for lower speeds if there's higher to be had.

Re: DSL Checker Speed changes

So, on the DSL checker, on the Bridge tap column i went from a "U" to a "Y" about a week ago when I made the upgrade to Infinity 1. And my speeds were in the impacted range. So I guessed the bridge tap was the cause of my problems. Now i've checked again and now it is down as "N". How can a bridge tap suddenly disappear overnight with no physical intervention?? Bit annoying because it was something that could be clearly shown to BT that something is definitely wrong on my line. If the bridge tap was fixed then surely my speeds would have increased but I'm currently on 21 down and 0.4 upload. This is getting very frustrating, to say the least!

Re: DSL Checker Speed changes

It may have had physical intervention. Bridge taps aren't located in the home.
