I am still on copper broadband with BT. I'm about 1km the exchange (Knightwick Cabinet 4) and until recently had decent and solid 6-7mbps download speeds. But this has now gone very erratic and varies from minute to minute - it can be very fast and then excrusiatingly slow seconds later. The phone line is crackle-free and the router (Smart Hub / Home Hub 6) is consistently reporting a connection of about 8mbps, and is not dropping or reconnecting.
Some measurements from last night, which is repeated day and night. Fast one minute and slow / non-existent the next.
21/9 10.24pm download 2.33Mbps / upload 0.6Mbps / Latency 293msec
21/9 10.25pm download 6.93Mbps / Upload 0.57Mbps / Latency 40msec
And info taken from the router:
Maximum data rate: 1092 / 8768
Noise margin: 24 / 8.1
Line attenuation: 15.5
Signal attenuation: 95 / 155
Latency Type Fastpath
Might this be a fault at the cabinet or the exchange? We were moved from an EO line to a cabinet in the last months, and whilst i can't be sure, it would seem that these latency & speed problems occured since then. I have Infinity on order but the activation date has been put back twice now. (I think i may have answered my own question here - there must be a problem they are trying to fix in the exchange / cab!)
Another thing possibly strange is that i see some "TR69" actions in the router log - which i googled & think is it something to do remote router management.
