Re: FTTC connection 300 feet from cab poor downstream

It could be radiating interference. What about the question regarding powerline adapters?

Just for the record I had a perfect 40/10 with sky fttc llu. Which sort of makes a mockery of the slow speeds now.

How so, you are still getting a perfect 40/10.

They aren't connected. Oddly at the same moment I disconnected the TV from the satalite, my son tells me the online game he was playing hung..

That sounds ominous. Leave it disconnected, and check the connection speed on the home hub now.

As you only got 40/20 from Sky, it could be that your line quality has always been poor. You could have an unbalanced pair, or aluminium cable.

 

The problem is going to be that you are getting above the minimum connection speed, so Openreach would probably not be interested in looking at it.

 

Not really sure there is anything you can do at this point, apart from wait to see if it gets any better.

That cannot be right @Keith_Beddoe as OP says he had 70+mb connection speed on infinity before he left for sky 2 years ago  suppose maybe different pair and more crosstalk

I was with BT before and was getting 72/19, although this was over 3yrs ago, I left BT for Plusnet and everything went down hill from then. I gave up on BT backhaul and joined Sky on llu 40/10 as that was all I needed then, but since I upgraded the TV to 4k and with the kids getting the online gaming bug, watching nowtv whilst BF4 was been played, swamped my network necessitating a bit more bandwidth. No connection charge and free weekend calls were a winner over Idnet charging £90 connection fee without a router, I oddly was looking at Idnet 52/10 service.

It's sad I had recycled t pphe hh5 as I have seen comments here the hh5 has been better, hence my thought this could just be a router fault, especially as I have opted out of BT WiFi and the router is still sending out the hotspot, I prefer that I know who is connected to my network, despite that BT claim it is a small amount of data (14mb is a small amount if someone is streaming using my hotspot) and is secure on a different channel to protect me from any wrong doing, I wonder how it goes that?. Since I can't clearly stop something I don't want, then I will get a new router that will not have that feature after the ten days are up.

Can I thank all the experts today, you've been great, even if we cannot fix the problems I am having.

Yep I've had 2 line breaks, a open cable in the house and a faulty switch in the cab, crosstalk is possible as TBB picked up that.
