[re: andythebrave] [link to this post]
If the OpenReach engineer fixed a fault he should have reset the DLM.

This would make your line considerably lower than the peak you had before the fault.

Interleaving is active, G.INP is not active and the SNRM is 6dB after a DLM reset.

It takes a week or 2 for the DLM to return a line to peak speeds.
There's nothing any ISP, engineer, or department within OpenReach can do anything about this.

Sounds like you've jumped the gun complaining without knowing the ins and outs of how it works.

[re: j0hn83] [link to this post]
john the engineer did nothing ot a jot the line this is 2nd eng inner iam logging on here for sky the engineering said no fault found no ports check ,y speed has dropped 29 Mb and i am it eng i know the technology he arrived was alot higher than he left , dlm reset should be alot higher and he reset on his tester not on the router , so i am not jumping the gun , last time this happened took talk talk 3 years to get fixed and they did not , i should be on 76 Mb sync , i actually think the ports failing the cabinet so no ,plug in test run off after reset dlm with out any further investigation when speed dropped in fornt of his eyes nope useless eng sent , the line is perfect it will run normally at 2db , but
1 there testers cannot test below 6db
2 as he was 2nd engineer there should been a lift and shift intuited as this problem only appeared after the lightning storms.
Sky have admitted that he should have investigated a 29 percent speed drop is not acceptable

[re: andythebrave] [link to this post]
if your contract is greater than the contracted you get ie up to a 40 m/bps or over a 50 > or what ever it and your getting more than that its unlikely the engineer will do anything

it woudl not surprise my if your CP was billed for that as well (interesting to see if you CP pass that onto you or cover it

you would only be on 76 is you were on top of the cabinet

comments like - nope useless eng sent - not helpful either

I onow i was on 72 Mb sync before fault amd i pay forvthat speedd and yes my exp of openreach emgineers if the dont fix it dlm reset does not fix fault esp if whilst eng is there you loose a furler 14 Mb and he fails to fix . Hexwent out says hes going hes dan for something amd disappeared. Not good hre shoukd have gone to cab abd checked that , its not good, sky useless had one telling me its wifi when i use thecyputer as modem wifi was fi e on my netwrk as the the ax6000 was doing backup o
Onto my nas at time, open reach he did not do anywork at all on call , amd im it eng of 25 years plus . As well as network o stalker in past feild service, server support , robotic tape drives cisco trained microsoft certified degree ekectronis andcradio ham , this a record onlibe to see if they fix it , you will understand why if you look at the talk talk failult on the exchange they never fixed. So yes open reach say im fibre emg when i start goingbthrough what they foubd andczuggest check cab, reprog port lift and shift they run off , why cos there suddenlybtelphone wire men not sfc eng . So yes useless ,today was 2nd eng

[re: andythebrave] [link to this post]
What’s your minimum guaranteed speed for your connection with Sky? Also, you pay for an “up to” speed - not an exact figure unless you’ve got cash coming out of your ears for SLAs on a leased line!

[re: andythebrave] [link to this post]
Is this the same line as you were posting issues with in 2014 and 2017 with TalkTalk? If so, how did that end up getting resolved in the end?

PS - your posts are incredibly difficult to read.
