Re: FTTC connection 300 feet from cab poor downstream

Go to solution
Ok. Oddly the by fault tracker is picking up slow speeds, but can't find a hard fault, yet when I say i have a no 6 filter, it stops and tells me to speak to them.

I'll leave it as is for the time being and will see if it improves.

I still think you need an engineer visit as speed should be higher with your attenuation

I know you said you had no extensions, what about any extra phone wiring that may still be connected, but has no sockets on it?

Does the line come straight into that socket?

 

Did you test from the real test socket that is behind the filtered faceplate, or just the one that is below the bottom sectiion?

Those NTEs can develop a fault.

My thought also, will let the ten days pass and see if thinks improve, could be simply a stuck bras profile, I had one of those before and it took an engineer visit to reset.

Did you test from the test socket at the back which is the real test socket, just to elimate a filter fault?

if it was a stuck/banded profile that would not affect your max attainable speed just your conenction speed so there is something else causing a problem

Agreed, it should be better than that.

 

I wanted to eliminate the NTE filter components first, as they are quite complex, also the interconnecting parts.

It's a new line from the drop wire outside up the filtered mk3.
I have removed the large part that says openreach mark 3 at the top, this came away when I un screwed the telephone faceplate. The new filter is placed in the telephone test socket under neath. It was this that was loose, if I take that off in left with wires at the back, so yes that's the test socket

Its not a good sign it was loose. So that back socket is where you got the last set of connection results?  Ignore any speed test results, as they are meaningless at this stage.

 

Where is the junction box that joins the dropwire to the internal cable located?

 

It may look like one of these

Dropwire to internal connection

 

BT 78A  or BT 52A

It's a new bt78aand is on the outside wall, the phone wire runs about 7ft from this point, do I open it or not?
