Long shot, but don't happen to have a radio ham living near by?


Perhaps if I install a load of powerline adaptors and dump traffic over them on my LAN I will flush one out or make him give up wink

" I've been told that the run from pole back to cab is Aluminium, and there is nothing they can do".

Don't you believe it, make yourself unpopular with BTOR as I did & you'll get results.

I had terrible problems with alumimum cable here, neighbour could get 75Mb, me 8-14Mb.
There were no spare pairs on front pole & was told to accept what speed I had.
Made myself very,very unpopular with BTOR continually complaining,took months & months of complaining before they moved me from the front pole to the rear pole.
Still had some problems with low speed & rotten aluminum cable running along High St, so complained higher up to Joe Garner, & got moved to a copper cable, now getting 76Mb.

Oooh, you give me hope!

Although, I am getting 43mbit, which is much more than 8-14, and makes me think my odds are slimmer than yours...

I haven't actually given up entirely yet and have a couple of other tricks up my sleeve.

I even went to my neighbours & got speed tests from them, showing their speed, & results from DSL Checker to back up my case.
