I've been on Infinity 2 in my current house for around 15 months now. To start with I was getting around 50mbit, which matches up with the speed they estimate for me:
|1. Product name:||BT Home Hub|
|2. Serial number:||+068543+NQ43938274|
|3. Firmware version:||Software version 184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11.11 (Type A) Last updated 07/07/15|

My uptime was on 12 days before going through the troubleshooting which told me to reset the modem, it also told me my speed of 32mbit (from the BT speed test) was good!! 😞
If it's not possible to improve this speed, do you think BT will downgrade us to Infinity 1 as it is pointless paying the extra £4 a month for a service that we are not getting (still in a contract for Infinity 2 at the moment).
Your max connection speed is 50875 but your actual connection speed is 34958.
The noise margin has risen to 12.3dB, which indicates that you have been experiencing disconnects, or have been restarting the home hub, especially as you are only showing a connection time of 2 hours and 40 minutes.
Why is it so short, as you most leave it turn on and connected, without any restarts, otherwise the equipment in the cabinet will reduce your actual speed.
If you want your speed to recover, then these are the steps you need to take.
DO NOT restart or disconnect the power to your BT Home Hub.
DO NOT disconnect your BT Home hub from your phone line.
Leave everything alone for at least 10 days, so that the exchange can record a stable connection.
During this time, the exchange may drop the connection, and re-establish a faster connection.
If you use the BT Speedtester, then do not restart the BT Home Hub, even if it tells you to.
can you run btspeedtester and when first test completes then run diagnostic test and post results must be done with wired connection btspeedtester
are you using the test socket with a new filter?
can you enter your phone number and post results remember to delete number wholesale FTTC check
with your current attainable speed you would be better on the new infinity 1 package 55/10 and save some money - and get same speed as at present phone options team 0800800030 - uk based
try quiet line test dial 17070 option 2 should be quiet and best with corded phone
As I said I have only just reset it today as part of the troubleshooting (kinda ironic as I know reseting the hub can be a cause of lower speeds).
Before that my uptime was 12 days. I've been trying to keep it connected as much as possible in the hope that the DLM would increase the speeds.
I think the drop in speed over time might have been caused by having lots of electical work done in the house which required turning the power off and on quite a bit causing multiple disconnects.
Download speedachieved during the test was - 32.56 Mbps
For your connection, the acceptable range of speedsis 23.68 Mbps-33.84 Mbps .
IP Profile for your line is - 33.84 Mbps
Upload speed achieved during the test was - 7.77Mbps
Upstream Rate IP profile on your line is - 20 Mbps
I'm not using the test socket, as I don't really want to disconnect it again. The socket is an Openreach Mk3 with the hub plugged straight into the socket.
I will give them a call and try and get them to downgrade me. (I miss my 76/18mbit Infintiy from my old house :()
unless you use the test socket there is no way to eliminate your internal wiring as causing the problem or a faulty faceplate - which does happen but not often. still up to you
To use the test socket do I need to plug an ADSL filter in to it and then my router in to that?
Will I need to leave it connected like this for a number of days as I am currently connected around the max speed of my profile (I think?) so have to give it a chance to adjust.
yes you will need to use a filter to conenct to test socket and yesy you need to leave conencted for a few days to see if improves also check other internal sockets do not have a dial tone
Cool, thanks for the help.
Will need to buy a new filter as I chucked them all out as I didn't think I would need them any more (doh!) 😄
Don't have any other sockets in the house so no need to worry about that 🙂
Just thought I'd add this if it's any help as well. Not sure what the difference is between Range A and Range B, I guess I'm in B though?
