I have had BT Infinity for just over 12 months, Upload speed has been a constant 17-19 MB , I broadcast on twitch so my upload speed is crucial, (its the reason i changed from VM to BT ).
It now appears to have HALVED in speed, My dowonload is 62Mb and my upload is 9mb.. ( verified with "testmynet"--"thinkbroadband" -- and "ookla" ) bt's own speed checker is hit and miss weather it works, and varies from 7 -11 Mb up.
Is this a congestion issue ? with more folks being added to the Cabinet ?
or could this be something else.
I dont use the HH4 it came with , i use an Asus Router (which has been working flawlessly from day one ), nothing has changed on the router.
With the speed drop coupled with internet going off when it rains, is making me consider dumping BT and going back to the dark side.
Any clues as to what is happening would be appreciated.
Can you post your IP Profile by running the BT Performance test at www.speedtest.btwholesale.com, please? When the first test has finished, press the Further Diagnostics button then after you enter your phone number, your IP Profile should be displayed.

Thanks. OK, you could have a problem with your connection due to the line going off when it rains.
Is your phone line noisy? You can do the quiet line test by dialling 17070 and selecting option 2. The line should be silent - no noise, no crackles, no hissing, nothing.
