New street lights reduce broadband speed ?


[link to this post]
 
My road has just had new street lights and posts installed very bright and low energy blah blah

Sync has gone from 6500 to 606 downstream ! Opps

Well now is it the new lights or have they damaged the cable ?

As A sky customer no hope of getting it resolved

Have fired up my 3g dongle as its faster now LOL

Alas stats from normal socket, and when using the test socket.

If the new lights are a CFL type, there may be more noise. Am AM radio can help to ID the source, plus street lighting will affect others, so if you can show a problem affecting several in a street easier to get council to pay attention and resolve it.

At least this didn't gert rude. We'd better let it go or we could both become a ghost of posters past.

I think you've missed the change of author.

Rather off-topic. Maybe PM?
