This isn't a case of keeping up with the Jonses, but really annoying issue! Ever since we moved to this house I had problems with boradband, inittially nothing would work... it would work for a few seconds then disconnect, no-one was interested so I switched to cable as I needed BB for work.
After some time I thought I'd try it again on the landline with an offer and if it didn't work I could just cancel it, this time it did work... but I only get on average about 3.1 mbps... I know a lot of others on here are far worse off but I tested my neighbours connection yesterday and they are getting over 10mbps! Both our lines are comming in from the same pole. We're both with Sky. I've tested everything I can my end including using the test socket but still the same. One thing some people mention to me is they also think it's quite a quiet line when using the phone, they struggle to hear what we're saying sometimes.
Has anyone got any ideas?!
Line attenuation is 42db / 24db
Noise 8.9 / 16.1
Router show around 4mbps connection but I've tested it loads of times with different speed checkers at different times of day and it never goes above 3.3mbps max.
If I call Sky & they turn the speed up it will work for a bit but then start dropping out until it comes back down to around 3mbps.
