We had a new cabinet installed nearbye as a long awaited BDUK FTTC upgrade. It has sat there for about nine months until OR finally did the live to live transfer last week.
Previously I used to sync at around 6400mbps with snr around 3-4db.
The guy who did it managed to wrongly connect the voice service of several people to each other, fortunately I was spared this.
Attenuation speed has not changed, well perhaps by 0.5db, but this varied anyway. But now the best sync speed I can get is around 5700. Thats a drop of 10% of throughput when there should have been no change. Here are the current stats :
Max: Upstream rate = 992 Kbps, Downstream rate = 6584 Kbps
Bearer: 0, Upstream rate = 444 Kbps, Downstream rate = 5785 Kbps
Link Power State: L0
TPS-TC: ATM Mode
Trellis: U:ON /D:ON
Line Status: No Defect
Training Status: Showtime
SNR (dB): 4.7 23.1
Attn(dB): 50.5 32.4
Pwr(dBm): 0.0 12.6
What has happened doing the transfer that has screwed my line speed ? And is there anything I can do to persuade my ISP that I have a problem ?
Before anyone suggests........I know I can upgrade to FTTC/VDSL but I cannot justify the extra cost for what I use the connection for.
From life in the slow lane.
