Infinity 2 speed below guaranteed minimum by 10mbps

Hi,

Am in the CT9 area if that helps at all, I've been experiencing this for quite some time: upload speeds are around the same or slightly better than the guaranteed minimum of 18Mbps, while download speeds are averaging around 37-39Mbps, despite the fact that the guaranteed minimum is apparently 49Mbps.

No engineers have been seen as of yet about this, I should mention I'm not the one paying for the broadband though I live in the same house and have tried to fix things.

We're using a Home Hub 5 which was installed around July 2015-ish over IPv4 only (apparently IPv6 isn't supported), subnet mask and internal router IP hasn't been touched. Initially when we first got it we were averaging around 50-60Mbps but 2 years later (from about the end of 2016 onwards) it started falling gradually and becoming a lot more inconsistent.

I tried using the default DNS, Google DNS and CloudFlare DNS on a few different devices to no drastic effect or change.

Nothing's running outbound except a TCP port currently not assigned to any device for now. Not running a VPN or some other thing that could be slowing it...

I also rebooted the router 20 minutes ago to no effect... am at a loss here...

Re: Infinity 2 speed below guaranteed minimum by 10mbps

post stats from hh5  troubleshooting then helpdesk

enter phone number and post results  remember delete number but leave exchange and cab  https://www.dslchecker.bt.com/adsl/adslchecker.welcome

try quiet line test  dial 17070 option 2 should be silent and best with corded phone from test socket

the speeds quoted by BT are connection speeds not download speed - no ISP guarantees download/upload speeds
