Noise as in photons being corrupted?
Remember FTTP is not subject to RF noise.
Yeah, I am aware of that, but BT still say that.
The fact its showing packet loss with no obvious change in baseline latency tends to point to a broadband hardware issue
What hardware would this be, BT's internal hardware, the ONT, or my Router.
And like you said the latency is still very low when its happening, which is confusing me.
Also it doesn't happen right away, it starts happening X days after the new connection is made, and the one of the 6 hour spike will be the time it was reconnected on.
BT has told me via Twitter that I would have to connect the Smart Hub back up so that they can do they tests, that wouldn't help if it doesn't happen right away, also how would I know its happening due to the hub blocks ICMP Pings
and there is nothing stopping BT from saying everything is fine when it might not be.
Like I have already said I have had to resort to buying another completely different branded router only product to rule out it being a router issue, its a shame that the Smart Hub doesn't have an expert mode which allows the user to allow
for ICMP pings.
Granted we have the DMZ, but I don't really want to setup a server just to allow for ICMP ping responses.
