Re: Infinity 2 speed drops over the last 6-8 months

Go to solution

That's the problem.

 

I repeated that I'd like to arrange an engineer visit multiple times when speaking to each of the CS people and they seemed reluctant to do this.

 

Instead they seemed happier to try and trouble shoot my WiFi speeds even though I kept telling them I was using a wired computer.

 

If an Openreach engineer came out and proved that their equipment plugged into our master socket was returning the full speed and thus it was a fault on our side, I'd gladly pay the £130 call out fee.

 

So how do I get an engineer visit arranged without having to speak to BT Customer care?

Also, if no-one here can help because I'm unable to provide stats from our router, can a moderator not get in contact with me so they can look into this in more detail.  Presumably, they have a lot more power in terms of what they can check.

I had an openreach engineer visit booked for today between 08:00 and 13:00 (kindly arranged by Neil, one of the forum moderators)

 

As it's now nearing 13:00 with no sign of the engineer, what are the chances that he/she is going to arrive at all today?

If he hasn't turned up get back in touch with Neil and advise him.

I've just sent Neil a private message so will wait and see.

 

I've just read too many stories on these forums about engineer no-shows.

Did you use the "conact the mods link" as the moderators cannot deal via private messaging?

@NeilOI got your e-mail message earlier.

 

As you say, the engineer replaced the Openreach modem as he was seeing higher sync speeds when bipassing it.

 

He also replaced the master socket, not because it was faulty, but because there is a newer version now apparently, that's supposed to provide bettering shielding/filtering.

 

My IP profile, according to the BT wholesale performance tester is 33.25 Mbps and download speeds are currently at around 32Mbps.

 

The engineer did say that DLM should increase this over the next 7-10 days.

 

Hopefully our IP profile should increase as I know our line is capable of more than 32Mbps.

 

He ran tests on the line and gave it a clean bill of health so I know our phone line doesn't have any faults.

 

I'll post back in 5-10 days to let you know how things are going.

 

I'll be happier when our profile increases back to what it used to be (around 39Mbps).

 

Regards

Also, I should just add that Neil has been brilliant throughout.  What good customer service should be.
