0.11Mbps with NewNet


[link to this post]
 
Hello all, I live in Maidenhead, have been with NewNet for a couple of years. Our broadband speed has never been that good here but recently it has been dreadful.

Here is a link to the SpeedTest.net results:

I was wondering if you could give me any clues as to why our broadband is so slow.

Thanks in advance.

Yup, no problems at all with that.

We did wonder whether it could be the line from the house out to the telegraph pole on the road. Or the pole on the road to the exchange. Do these things make a difference?

It can happen that one wire of the pair becomes detached, anywhere between you and the exchange. When that happens you get extremely low broadband speed, because it works degraded on one wire, and no phone because that needs both wires.

If your noise margin had been higher I would have suspected you just had a bad sync a while ago, and hadn't re-started the router since. Simply turning the router off for a couple of minutes might fix it. Probably not, but it does no harm.

If it doesn't, I suggest you try a factory reset of the router. (Unless you have lots of your own settings in it such as port forwarding and fancy settings). You will probably need to re-enter your Newnet login details if you do that.

Factory rest is done with the router on and connected by pressing (gently but firmly) the end of an opened up paperclip into the Reset button hole on the back, holding the button depressed for a few seconds - until the lights start to flash.

Good point. Only staff and mods can do that, so you would be best raising it in TTTS. Google will probably already have them anyway ... yes it has.

A little history is needed? At 48dB attenuation one would expect 4 to 5 Meg from ADSL, so did you ever see that.

If not then, it may be the problem has existed for ages. Have you checked from the master socket test socket, eliminated any alarms of Sky boxes connected to the phone line?

The attenuation's do look a little odd, as upstream is so low compared to downstream, usually upstream is around half the downstream.
