FTTC Performance variability


[link to this post]
 
Last week the download performance of FTTC was very slow - down to about 17Mbs - the speed is now back up to almost where it should be.
See here

for the SamKnows White box report for the year to date.

Any comments on the variability of performance - can anything be done about it - or is it a portent of the future - gradually reducing performance

How was the performance on other things?

There is a chance that the SamKnows testing was having variable performance.

The response on web work was very slow - hence I checked the SamKnows values.

IIRC a few days ago there was a major fault up north affecting lots of customers of all ISPs that use BT Wholesale. It may have been that?

Interesting - I live in Hampshire but I have heard that the routings are quite devious.
