Re: Slightly slow ADSL2+ speeds – possible PSTN issue?

An RF3 filter might cure/block it out ... but you’ll need an SFI visit from Openreach to source one.

North East - Ponders End or Waltham Abbey maybe? Or Southall?

Yep, North East indeed. What's your theory? Is there a nearby transmitter for the station do you think? (I've tried Googling but nothing obvious came up, presumably because these MW stations don't need any massive infrastructure…)

The transmitter is in Sewardstone - just off the A112.

How very interesting! Yes, that's not a million miles from me. With that discovery I've been able to find a planning application for the transmitter which I note is only a couple of years old, so it's quite possible it wasn't operational when I had my line installed at the beginning of last year. Thanks for the info/sleuthing.

It is probably at the south-east corner of Northfields Nursery.

If it is very close and your line just happens to be of the right length it will act as a tuned circuit.

In reply to a post by Zarjaz:

Would I be right in thinking that wouldn't be a chargeable visit?

Edit: But then wouldn't the noise still be hitting the ADSL, just no longer audible?

So an RF3 filter really would help - that’s what they were originally made for, before their use as ‘REIN suppressors’ came to pass.
