We have been waiting for some time to be connected to our own new cabinet in my small village. At the moment we have a sub cabinet connected to the main cabinet about 1.5k away. Consequently the best vdsl speeds anyone gets are below 20 Mbps.
I am on ADSL and usually sync at 6500, well until yesterday when I lost sync a couple of times and the router took a long time with many retries to resync. So I then thought I had better take a stroll to see if anything was going on at the cabinet - which there was - two vans and two guys under umbrellas were in the process of moving the copper over to the new "all in one" cabinet. They said my connection should not be affected apart from being a little slower because there would be a loop providing a connection to both cabs until the whole job was over.
They said they did not know which cable was mine and that an engineer had to come out to sort it (??!!)
So I am stuck with a sync down/ up of 1184/72 and noise levels of 11/6. Attenuation has gone from 50 to 73db. But at least it still works.
As I have no dialling tone as well I reckon that they have only reconnected one of my signal wires. Am I correct or not ?
My fear is that the fix may be prolonged as the ISP says they cannot log an ADSL fault until the phone line fault is cleared so I may not get a broadband trained engineer.
