DLM after 4 weeks?


[link to this post]
 
I switched ADSL2+ from TT LLU to Zen over BT wholesale about 4 weeks ago. My download speed has been 20Mbps with Zen instead of 14.5 with TT, and it has been rock solid.However on Thursday, exactly 4 weeks after the line switched, I started getting drop outs.

I seem to remember I read somewhere that when a broadband supply is switched to BT, they leave it alone for four weeks, then start DLM. I think I read about this on this site, but I may be getting confused with something else.

Has anyone heard of anything like this?

You are confused with something else.

DLM is ALWAYS running, just that with the ADSL based services there is a figure stored in a database after ten days used in assessing fault conditions.

So at anytime if the DLM sees a change in conditions it may cap or improve line speeds. Drop outs is sign of a problem, not the DLM i.e. DLM does not deliberately drop the line just for giggles.

OK, thanks. I'm glad it's not due to BT having a giggle with my service
