So what does cause packet loss if it is not rf interference?
Maybe if I outline the problem in a bit more detail, it might help:
I have two phone lines in the same street, connected to the same exchange, and with the same provider (BE). One is virtually free of packet loss, the other shows a constant pattern of packet loss (between 7am and 2pm,showing about 3% -5%loss, the rest of the day being fine).
I am able to monitor this as i have set up an f8lure graph as well as a thinkbroadband graph, both of which show the packet loss hitting during the same periods consistently.
The problem line has been tested by BE and Open reach and I have carried out all the usual diagonostic measures.
So I am now contemplating switching to Virgin, the only cable provider in my area (as I live in Chelsea, and my line goes straight to the exchange, I do not anticipate having an option to switch to fibre anytime soon - particularly with all the nonsense between Kensington and Chelsea Council and BT about cabinets being in not in keeping with the character of the borough etc.)
