Speedtests are pointless without the line stats from the router.

Router stats are not going to change the "busy" time of the day. I'm trying to watch a prem footie match @ the mo, but it's not too exciting in "freeze frame" frown

Then you are suffering from congestion as you've been repeatedly told. There is nothing we or you can do except nag your ISP or migrate frown

Hmmmmm .............. I've just tried a ping test. It first tried to connect unsuccessfully with a server in Rotterdam (never done that before!), then it defaulted to Milton Keynes, but has just "hung".
There's an announcement on thinkbroadband's home page about a massive "outage" this morning - maybe this latest glitch is connected ............ ?

Or maybe not? The outrage was Friday a.m. and you've always had this issue.

You are grasping for straws.

I've nagged, and they have requested I do the Tap 2 & Tap 3 BT Speedtester tests.
Only trouble is that my Livebox just won't take "speedtest@speedtest_domain" as a username with password left blank. I've also tried "testing" as a password - but still no go.
my current speeds are still deteriorating by 90% @ peak times; I've just taken my
speed data & router stats:
Download Speed 2408 Kbps
Max Achievable Speed 21000 Kbps

Download speed achieved during the test was - 2408 Kbps
For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 4000-21000 Kbps.
Additional Information:
Your DSL Connection Rate :15320 Kbps(DOWN-STREAM), 1104 Kbps(UP-STREAM)
IP Profile for your line is - 13516 Kbps

2. Upstream Test: -provides background information.
Upload Speed 822 Kbps

The British based Orange tekkie is calling me back within 48 hours, so it'll have to wait til then if no one has any advice to carry out the BT advanced speed connection tests.
My other bitter pill, is I've been billed both by Orange and BT for my home telephone rental and calls, after I transferred it all to Orange (who already was my ISP) 6 weeks ago. After I complained to BT, they pleaded with me to come back, even offered me a cheaper package! I turned the offer down, and requested a refund. Also cancelled my direct debit with my bank - which I've never had to do previously when dealing with BT.
