I've been struggling with line speed since my broadband was connected. I live in rural cornwall, and there are no green cabinets in the area.
At first, until April last year, I was getting aprox 320 kbps, this then dropped to 128kbps, and sometimes (not often) 250 kbps. Recently the broadband started dropping out, and a BT engineer identified and fixed a line fault and I have been getting an amazing! 1.2 Mbps. Now, after nearly a month of being able to stream video etc. my speed has suddenly reduced to 320 kbps.
My ISP cannot refer this as a speed issue, as the database says that I should only be able to receive between 250 and 520 kbps because of line length (3.8 kilometers straight line, but quite a lot more actual line length).
Others locally have no problem streaming video, and I am able to achieve better speeds through my neighbour's connection than through my own.
Can anyone give me any advice?
