The problem is this: broadband speeds after being reasonable for years have really taken a tumble over the last couple of months, along with frequent drop outs, disconnections, etc.
Router is a lousy ZyXEL P660RT1v3
SNR Margin: Downstream 6.5 Upstream 25.0 db
Line Attenuation: Downstream 45.5 Upstream 27.0 db
Data Rate: Downstream 6400 Upstream 448 kbps
Annex Mode: ANNEX_A
but speedtest results show only 2.29 kbps on a good day, it's been up to 4.xx kbps in the past.
Any ideas whats going on? I'm assuming DLM has something to do with it as it's a resold BT product, I'm on Sky LLU myself so am unfamiliar with DLM. The exchange was upgraded to 21CN WBC in november, not sure if thats a coincidence or not.
(I should point out it's my mothers phone line, I'm trying to help her out. I've told her she should call the P.O. and get them to call out an OR engineer, but she's terrified of the £150 call out charge if the fault is her end, she's a pensioner so this kind of bill is unaffordable, so any help that it's not a fault her side of the house would be immensely helpful)
