Comscom formerly adsl 24 unhappiness


[link to this post]
 
Thinking long and hard about complaining, I feel it now necessary to share my experiences with this forum. The move from adsl24 has not gone well and I have found myself now for the 3rd day without net access. Not only was my account overcharged but I have been really not helped by the polite but so far unsuccessful helpdesk. In short router connects, noise margins fluctuate but within tolerance but I can't open websites or on the one occasion it worked today it became painfully slow after five minutes then stopped altogether again. Can't ping any sites bar computer and router. I was told phone line and router were to blame but changed router and phone line test came back fine. All DNS settings have been tested with several machines and wiser people than me to no avail. Promised phone call back tonight did not happen and the email to the coms director who posts here resulted in the reply what do you really need me to do. Sort it out , please would be nice. I will keep you posted and will be the first one to hold my hand up in apology should the phone line provider be the problem but as of now they say the tests showed no fault on line. Sorry for the rant but perhaps others have similar issues and it will get something done. Siamanti currently very frustrated.

Ah, another unhappy coms customer. My connection has been better of late - still slower than pre-cutover, but my current session is now almost 9 days so there is hope! I am using public dns though instead of coms.

Anyway, I'm sure more knowledgeable people than me will be along soon with more ideas - but it might be worth trying a tracert to www.bbc.co.uk and posting the results back here. Also, info from your router - model, sync speeds, snr, current session length, etc.

Are there any errors reported in the router logs? Does it show disconnects & reconnects?

In reply to a post by tonytiger07:

What is your SNR margin? Like most users, mine was set to 12dB post-migration (as opposed to the ADSL24 default of 6dB pre-migration). This resulted in a download speed drop from 5.6 Mb/s to 3.6 Mb/s. Most users similarly affected saw similar drops. Requests for Coms support to change the margin back to what it was pre-migration normally seem to have recovered most or all of the speed loss. Haven't done mine yet (been travelling on business) but it's on the to-do list
