This is now having a direct impact on speed instead of the 3500/700kbps I was getting I now get a measly 775/480mbps. Last night my connection was flaking out completely and is really unstable, I actually plugged in the old HGV2700 2wire which I know is good on long lines and even that was losing connection every now and then, showing the maximum reading of 63DB downstream att.
I get Fibre on the 25th of this month, but with this issue I want to try resolving it first, Iím with Xilo and have noticed that there is some background interference on the voice side of the line. BT are due out tomorrow to take a look at the line, any ideas on what could of caused this massive increase in attenuation? Is there anything I could say to the BT guy to avoid the £99+VAT charge Sky have threatened if itís not at BTís end. Iíve tried two phones and both have that background interference.
I've tried the original filtered faceplate, 2 other filters in the test socket, 3 routers (2wire HGV2700, DG834GT and DGN2000), also tried 2 phones to test the voice side of the line. Nothing resolves the problem of poor voice quality and very poor attenuation. Could BT have changed my connection at the local cab without me knowing, putting me on a worse connection? I've the cable coming into the house direct at ground level (no grey box - not a new house) to the single master socket, no other sockets are used in the property.
Iím wifi tethering my phone now just to connect to the internet, which incidentally although latency isnít as good, speed is better than my ADSL connection.
