Background. new Exchange Only connection to OR network on ADSL1, on rural farm. Line is about 6.5km long. ISP Pobroadband.
I have had major problems since being connected 5 weeks ago. Router would drop out in excess of 35 times per 24 hrs (PO's own figures) even when connected to test socket.
Different router, new telephone and a few tweaks have considerably reduced that down, but my speeds are 160kb to about 480kb and that is confirmed by the btspeedtest. Routers show sync speeds of 1664 upto 1950 but my actual speed remains as above. How / Why ? How can I be syncing at that level yet speed remains that low.?
PO have been utterly and completely useless in every sense.
There are 3 houses on the farm joined to each other, 2 of us have broadband, my immediate neighbour gets and maintains about 1.5 meg speed and we share the same physical cables from the pole.
Help really would be gratefully accepted.
