Of course having said that, just had a major hiccup on my line! I've said in the past that I can often see installs taking place on my cab by the fact that the line SNR margin or Speeds jump up and down momentarily but usually go back to what they were. A couple of you said this is likely due to a bad jelly crimp on the d- or e-side in the cabinet being knocked around by a clumsy contractor!
About an hour ago the line suffered badly from this and in the process lost 10Mbps of d/l speed and the stats show 10 LOS (I've never had any in 4 months 'till then) and the DLM appears to have been at work.There was also a mass of errored seconds for an hour about 10 x normal
These DSLStats graphs show it clearly - it looks like the SNR margin has been upped by 6dB judging from when another disturbance temporariily cleared the bad connection a little later (and the interleave has also been dropped by about 300).
A BT Wholesale Speed Test shows the line as underperforming now (red result) at 32Mbps against a profile of 45Mbps (min should be 35Mbps).
What's the best way of reporting this to plusnet as a line fault if that is in fact what it is please? Not affecting the telephone AFAIAA. I'm worried that at some point it'll disconnect completely and late on a Friday like now
The Live Stats in my sig show it quite well at the moment... Line had been up for 40 days prior to this.
