Yeah I remember times like that when on ADSL2+, it would happen when it rained or was windy, but would always end with a dead line.

Sadly there was no other good working pairs to swap over to, so we had to just put up with it.

So yeah I know the feeling and I feel for you.

Hi Tim

You're within touching distance now after your marathon wait, I know it must be agonising at the moment but you are so close and it will be so worth it.

Keep the faith smile

I don't trust AAISP LibreSpeed test

I just did several speed tests using AAISP LibreSpeed https://i.imgur.com/h01UK8f.jpg
Getting consistently over 79Mbps. In this test I got 79.7Mbps. Over 20Mbps upload every single time using TalkTalk FTTC. And always under 5ms response time.

With Internet Frog https://i.imgur.com/6XC1WI7.jpg I get 80.4Mbps and SpeedGuide.net also gives me 80Mbps.

It's unfortunate that the OP doesn't have FTTC. ADSL is horrible, not just from a speed point of view but it's very unreliable. In fact when I had ADSL until only February even though my Cabinet got upgraded in October 2019.

My speeds sometimes would drop to 0.10Mbps when my noise margins dropped to 2dB from 9dB until the SNR bounced back and would give me 12Mbps on ADSL! This also tended to happen when it rained or wind.

I no longer suffer from this problem last 5 months since switching to FTTC. If OP is on a plan for FTTP of-course no guarantees that he will get it, should circumstances change such as wayleave.

If FTTP is not planned, he may look into https://www.bt.com/broadband/USO Universal Service Obligation will qualify as it is less than 10Mbps.

I understand your pain...

Less than 0.5Mb sync before a faulty line was repaired at the end of April, it took over a month to get TalkTalk to refer it to Openreach during the lockdown. 1-1.5Mb since, and a SNR stuck at 15dB.

On 80/20 FTTC now, syncing at 79/20... good luck with the FTTP

What was the point in posting your test results? Looks like you are trying to annoy the OP.

Was Eclipse Home Option 1, VM 2Mb & O2 Standard
Now Utility Warehouse (up to 16mbps) via Talk Talk

It looks like your going from the stone age to the future age smile

When it's installed you'll have to report back and let us know what you think of it.
