Re: Talk Talk


[re: Gene_Genie] [link to this post]
 
So I went live with talk talk on friday, my predicted speed was 18.9 meg.

Speed has been all over the place, my downloads also seem to start slowly for a while and then speed up, almost like its burstable bandwith,

I've just done a speed test on the site and I'm getting 3.3 mb. I was getting 7.5.mb on adsl with bt. I live opposite the exchange, I think my line is 37 metres long.

router stats


Mode: ADSL2 PLUS
Type: ANNEX_A
Status: Showtime

Downstream Upstream
Rate (Kbps): 20878 kbps 889 kbps

SNR Margin (dB): 11.9 11.6
Attenuation (dB): 0.0 3.7
Output Power (dBm): 0.0 9.3

Can anyone advise?

thanks

Have you tried changing your DNS servers?

No need to change DNS servers as they are assigned automatically. Just try a different router and if the problem still persists try the test socket behind the master socket. Also put a request on the TT forums to have your downstream SNR lowered to 6db...this should give you the full 24 meg sync or very close to it.

Thanks,

more hated than aol? although I suppose they are one and the same these days.

I've sent tt my phone number and account number so I can get access to the forum.

At the end of the day I didn't want to wait until bt had upgraded the exchange by the end of feb. TT are also a lot cheaper, yes maybe you get what you pay for.

I will see how it goes.

As long as you stick to forum support, you'll have absolutely no issues with TalkTalk. I've been with them for almost 2 years now and still waiting for them to mess up my servicegrin
