Slow speeds off Wolverton Exchange, Milton Keynes?


[link to this post]
 
Speedtester.bt.com confirms my ADSL speeds have taken a hit. I am with Vodafone athome, which is a badged BTW product.
Next door, who are on Orange, are also complaining.

My modem stats..
Mode: ADSL_G.dmt
Traffic Type: ATM
Status: Up
Link Power State: L0

Downstream Upstream
Line Coding(Trellis): Off Off
SNR Margin (0.1 dB): 124 210
Attenuation (0.1 dB): 610 300
Output Power (0.1 dBm): 183 119
Attainable Rate (Kbps): 3328 1044

Path 0 Path 1
Downstream Upstream Downstream Upstream
Rate (Kbps): 3072 448 0 0


Speedtester throughput resuls show 250K, unfortunately ISP wont do anything until I go through the whole procedure of making the tea and stoking the fire.
Anyone else experiencing similar problems in the area of Bradville?

what IP Profile does speed tester show ?

In reply to a post by concretecow:

That's mainly to get rid of the people who don't really have problems, or those who can't be bothered with all the required tests.
A simple BT speedtest result (as Phil has said) should go a long way towards working out the source of the problem (line faults, ISP congestion, BT congestion, low IP profile).

I'm on the Wolverton exchange, but in Bradwell. Both my ADSL2+ and ADSL Max lines are behaving normally. You really need to get a BT speed test result to see what your profile is.

Done all speedtester tests over the last three days, until I was sick of doing them.
IP profile was around 250K most times, even down to 75K, which is bad for a line that has provided, usually 2Mbs or so for over the last 5 years or so.. Had meaningful talks with my ISP, at least twice a day giving them the speedtester results and routerstats. At least the call center wasn't off shore and all parties used mother tongue english smile
Interestingly, speedtester shows the IP profile to be back to around 2500, which I would consider normal for my line on ADSL max...

Download speed achieved during the test was - 2279 Kbps
For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 600-7150 Kbps.
Additional Information:
Your DSL Connection Rate :3072 Kbps(DOWN-STREAM), 448 Kbps(UP-STREAM)
IP Profile for your line is - 2500 Kbps

Hopefully this situation is now resolved. Also need to check my neighbour to see if they have returned to normal throughput as well.

Roll on FTTC, due end of month (maybe)
regards
