Infinity 2 speed drops from 50 meg to 16 at peak times - Bearwood exchange

Go to solution

Hi , recently my speed has been really poor at peak times and wonder whether my connection now is too congested, is there anything that can be done?

Hi @Bouf111 and welcome.

 

Can you confirm which exchange you're on? Can you try running the speed test including the further diagnostics when the connection is slow and post the results?

 

Cheers

you need to post the further diagnostics test results as that result is saved on BT Wholesales servers

Hi these are the results from the additional test but as you can see there seems to have been an error.

Your speed test has completed and the results are shown above, however during the test an error occurred while trying to retrieve additional details regarding your service. As a result we are unable to determine if the speed you received during the test is acceptable for your service. Please re-run the test if you require this additional information.

@Bouf111 I'm sorry about the delay getting back to you. I can't see any issues reported with the Bearwood exchange but if there is congestion on the network it may be in a different location.  

 

If you send over your details we'll be happy to get this looked into. You can find the click here to contact the mods link by clicking on my username.

Thanks

@NeilO I've just opened up a new thread and then seen this one, we're on the same exchange and down from 50 to 4 for download speed so it doesn't appear to be an isolated issue.

Hi @Bouf111 & @Tlwil13

 

From double checking there may be a potential congestion issue.

 

There is one particular VLAN on that exchange that BT Wholesale have identified as being over utilised.  So if both you guys are connected to that VLAN this will explain why you're seeing a slow down of your throughput speed during peak times.

 

@Tlwil13  Can you also send us over your details and we'll check this for you too?  Click on my username here >> RobbieMac << and you'll see our contact link on the left hand side underneath my profile picture.

 

Cheers,

 

Robbie

Hi robbie

I have exactly the same problem as Bouf111 and TIWIL13. I'm on the same exchange and from about 5pm till 12 am my infinity 1 speed drops to around 3 meg download and 6 meg upload.

Off peak it's back to normal at around 49 meg download and 10 upload. This has been happening all week.

Could I send you my contact details too?

Thanks.
