I have tried to eliminate all sources I can within the house apart from stuff I can't turn off like the fridge and freezer and the house alarm system so I have a nasty feeling a recent acquisition by one of my neighbours could be the culprit and it looks like several more BT visits could be required to determine this and if this is the case there's diddly squat I can do about it so to my mind there's not really much point in wasting my leave on it.
Matt and co at Xilo have been extremely helpful but I think there's little if anything more that they can do.
The speed drop to 1 meg leaves me with a problem, I'm now a keen gamer but more importantly I do have cause to VPN into work on occasion and the connection also has to carry VoIP as well as Remote Desktop traffic, all the ADSL services I've had from Xilo have done this exceptionally well but obviously this won't work now.
I have two lines coming into the house as an alarm modem cannot coexist with ADSL.
If I could get rid of the second line (and its cost) that would be helpful but do I still have to pay line rental on top an FTTP service charge and is there now any idea how much this will be?
