Re: Very frustrated at speed drop

@Rottie, 

 

thanks I might buy as posted earlier on, the error i get which drops my speed and connection seems to be resolved via the HG612 according to many others on the forum. 

 

Thanks again, 

 

P.S is it unlocked?

IP Profile is now 52.27Mbps.

 


Please, can a mod look into this issue for me? Thanks.

Re: Very frustrated at speed drop

Hi Paddy,

 

Many thanks for the PM informing me of my mistake. 🙂

Unfortunately when I PM'd you earlier, there was no "Contact the Mods" link showing on your page, hence the PM was sent.

 

I've now sent you the PM via the correct channels and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

 

Thanks again.

DLM's reduced my IP profile AGAIN! Smiley Mad

IP Profile is now 42.59Mbps

 

This is getting ridicilous. Any lower and I'll be on Infinity 1 speeds! 😞 WTH am I paying almost £60 a month to BT for?!? Smiley Mad

Re: Very frustrated at speed drop

Someone's unhappy at 54Mb/s.... mine has dropped (AGAIN!) to 0.13Mb/s.

 

Its optimum is 1.2.  I could live with that - not happily, but I could live with it. 0.1 just doesn't count as a service.

 

BT WILL not (NOT cannot) do anything about it.  All I hear is disputes between BT retail and BT wholesale.  I have spent countless hours on the phone to India, having my intelligence insulted and my patience tested way beyond breaking point.

Re: Very frustrated at speed drop

Just a quick update:

 

Openreach engineer attended today and decided to run a whole new line into my premises.

Apparently, the old cable which was used was internal cable, but ran along the outside of my block and was in frayed in multiple places, presumably from the sheathing rubbing against the brickwork, so he ran a new external cable up to my front door and then some fresh internal cable to my phone point, which he also renewed and then he requested a DLM reset on my line.

 

Below is a sample ping and traceroute to bbc.co.uk

Looking good so far; no disconnects from what I can tell and most importantly, I'm back on fast path. Smiley Very Happy

I'll monitor the connection over the next couple of days, but fingers crossed DLM will leave me alone from now on. 🙂

 

Thanks to Paddy on the Mods team for getting the engineer out to me so quickly and also to the OR engineer for going above and beyond, replacing all the cabling. Smiley Happy
