As some of you may already know I have been having some issues this month with my FTTC connection as DLM has been active on my line for 3 weeks.
I had an engineer out yesterday to check the line.
Before the engineer arrived he asked his Openreach colleague to reset the line so he could check the line stats with his JDSU.
When the engineer arrived he said he would expect close to full 40 Down/10 Up sync values as I am only 300 metres away from the cabinet. He tested the line and as he imagined he was getting the full sync speeds.
Once he did that test, he checked my cabling coming into the master socket just to see if there was any loose cables, which there was not. He reset the line again and checked the sync and again it was coming up as 40 Down/10 Up . There were a very small number of errors but he said this wasn't the cause of the problem as there was such a small amount.
After that he visited the cabinet and exchange to check the connections and he said he could not see anything untoward. We did a BT speedtest and could see that the I.P profile had increased up to 38717Kbps which was what I used to be on. The reported download speed was 17 Meg down and 8 Meg up.
However later yesterday evening my connection was playing up, the DSL light on the openreach modem kept blinking on and off , this occured for a few hours until I attached and reattached the DSL cable and the light was back on. I ran a BT test and I still had the same profile . Overnight however I noticed that the I.P profile had dropped by 10 Meg. Anyone know what the reasons for this could be? To be honest I am more than happy with my speeds now just interested as to why the drop in speed.
Also is my graph looking ok- P.S the huge peak is because of the speed test.
