According to that your line should be perfectly capable of getting 10-12Mbps.

Why its connecting at only 3.4Mbps is very odd. The attenuation is low enough for 10+. Something is defiantly a miss. The target SNR must be set really high ? No idea. But i would say its defiantly a "fault" so to speak, and not just "your line is too long deal with it" type of situation.

Keep pestering until you get them to fix it for you.

In fact the modem its self is saying that it should be able to connect at a speed of 11.89Mbps. So why isn't it ?

Did you mess about with the modem a lot after it was installed. Turning it on and off and pulling the line out forcing it to re-sync many times ? This will make the cab think that you have a fault and lower your connection speed to attempt to compensate.

That command doesn't actually display attenuation.
You would need xdslcmd info --pbParams to see that.
It may be helpful if you posted those details for us to have a look at.

Your SNR values suggest a higher downstream speed could be achieved, but not much more upstream.

Unusually, your upstream Interleaving is ON (at a low level) & Downstream is OFF.
It is usually the other way round.

If your stats have always looked like this, it could suggest you are a long way from the cabinet, or you have a physical repairable problem somewhere.

Any idea of distance from the cabinet that you are actually connected to?

Does the modem resync regularly of its own accord?
This again would suggest physical problems.

Sorry to hear of your problem Anne, but sit down, have a cup of tea and listen to the posters here. Many of us have been on this road and this is the best site I know for finding solutions.

You're wasting time and money on a solicitor, and the small claims court may give you short shrift. You MUST follow the complaints procedure laid down in the ISP conditions. That means a complaint setting out your problem in factual terms, with dates of phone calls etc. Send it recorded delivery to the address in the conditions, or to the head office.

It may take eight weeks to grind through the procedures, and only then will the watchdog take up the complaint on your behalf: see http://www.cisas.org.uk/ also see http://www.broadbandchoices.co.uk/help/successful-br...

I have the same issue as you but its with the upload speed on mine, I have tried everything I have even emailed the CEO but I have still not got any help. Basically because the computer tells them my lines not capable of any more they won't do anything. Even though I have had two engineers visits and both say my upload is capped but they can't do anything, so if you find away to resolve your issue please let us know as I have given up.

Did he phone through to control for a line reset?

It is likely that a "banded profile" had been applied automatically by the DLM system, because of huge numbers of errors. As well as fixing the cable fault, he needed to phone to get that banding removed.
