I have today been connected to Zen broadband on the "up to 80Mbit" connection, which was promised to be around 50Mbit. However, having been connected, I am only getting 42Mbit.
Here are the modem stats:
1 23 45 67
Type VDSL Status UpUptime 0 days 1 hours 16 mins 49 secs Line Rate (Down / Up) 42551 kbps / 8079 kbpsNoise Margin (Down / Up) 5.8 dB / 6.1 dB Attenuation (Down / Up) 17.3 dB / 8.5 dBPower (Down / Up) 11.8 dBm / -1.1 dBm
Are these acceptable?
The one that I think it affecting my connection is the poor state of the master socket, or at least the wiring leading up to it. The BT line is actually coming in inside the garage on the opposite side of the house wall, which then goes through some junction box, over the ceiling into the living on the other there.
Once there, it goes through another junction box before going into a master socket.
From what I can see, only two wires are connected from the point of entry in the garage to the master socket. Can I just replace it myself, leaving the master socket where it is? Or better yet, have the master socket moved to the garage. I can then run a CAT5 cable from the modem back to the house into switches etc.
Now I know I am not legally allowed to do it but... will anyone notice? If it's a big no-no, can I get Zen (they also supply the line for me, but it's BT's anyway) or Openreach to relocate the socket for £? Or will they refuse to do this?
