Fobbed off by bt


[link to this post]
 
I have been having speed issues most evenings so I decided to call bt who said their is a problem on the network and they will inform openreach who will give me a call within 48hours.

I also mentioned congestion to which I never got a clear answer too but I do know Talk talk is congested at that exchange... If this persists would a change in isp help or will it be a case of bt wholesale bottleneck or bt just not purchasing enough bandwidth

Drumchapel exchange and on bt infinity

Without knowing the exchange and service you are on so people can compare with others results impossible to say.

If there is backhaul congestion it is nothing to do with Openreach, if this is Infinity they a very minute chance that one of the Gigabit links from a cabinet to an exchange is getting busy but almost unheard of.

BT Retail has had a number of issues in its network of late, and thus it may be that, and switching to a provider that does not use that network may help.

TalkTalk and BT are two very different providers.

How are you testing, wired or wireless? Do you have speedtests to hand?

Please can you run the speedtest in the right-hand menu on thinkbroadband Main Site. It is best if you sign up to the Main Site first - you can use the same details as here, or different - and log in of course. Then it gives you a more informative test result and also logs it to your account.

The just below the result will be a link you can copy and paste to here. We can see what that tells us, and also compare it with the 2014 Ookla one in your sig.

I would do one now while its ok and then another one when its bad.

That way we can compare the two.

Great smile. It does two different downstream tests and graphs them. The difference between the two graph shapes tells MrSaffron a lot.

Great, that's what we want. As you can see, the two down graphs are very similar. At a bad time things can look very different.

This has started to happen to me this evening. I just did this test - first time ever this has happened and I have been with Infinity 2 for about 5 years.

On another test I get latency of 126ms and Jitter of 208ms

Double ouch frown

Hi,

I'm wired into the HH5. I also tried a spare router and got the same results 2 nights ago.

Problem has returned

Funny you say that, we lost about 80% of our ADSL2+ speed this afternoon, at first I thought it was a Wi-Fi device downloading, so I disabled the Wi-Fi, still no change, then disconnected everyone but our DHCP Server and still loosing 80%.

I ended up clicking of disconnect and then 30 seconds later told the HH to reboot, when it came back up it was all fine again.

Still not really sure what caused it.
