horrendous Fiber speed

 

My BB speed has dropped down to as low as 2mb  (currently hovering between 5-20)on a 70mb  (min 55mb Guaranteed) to the point its practically unusable and definitely not what i  signed up for. i would be happy eve if it was 50Mb but 2mb my 4g phone is faster

I've been forced to open a fault about slow broadband speed but due to the awful speed and issues with your speed test i'm unable to complete the simple diagnostic speed test that you require via the website so you have removed my right to terminate my contract. It's not my fault your speed test isn't/wont work... 
I did however manage to run a speed test on the mybt app and results are as below along with results for various other speed results sites.

Re: horrendous Fiber speed

Probably worth mentioning that this mostly happens in the evenings 4pm-0000, leading me to believe its traffic shaping or a oversubscribed DSLAM of which there are 3 less than 30 metres from my house

Re: horrendous Fiber speed

Hi @ulysees321 welcome to the forum and sorry you are experiencing slow speeds in the evenings. I've had a quick look at Cwmbran on the wholesale congestion report and there is no congestion showing in the area. As you mention 4pm can you think of anything that may occur around that time daily that could affect the connection?

cheers

John

Re: horrendous Fiber speed

Hi John, 

 

Thank you for the kind welcome. I cant think of anything.  i have no other equipment performing backups etc and it is usually always during peak hours. 

I could understand if it was just a blip but its for hours on end, i will supply more speed tests during peak hours as part of my monitoring.

 

Sam

Re: horrendous Fiber speed

Hi @ulysees321 thanks for having a think about that and posting back. I've sent you a Private Message with details on how to contact the Mod team and we'll be happy to check your connection. We are busier than normal at the moment so it will take longer than usual for us to get back to you.

cheers

John
