Slow speed and drop off help please

Hello all
I havent been with plusnet long and all was great til a few days back. We had speeds of a solid 13mbps for the first few weeks and now it has dropped to below 2. I raised a ticket but the problem fixed itself and we were back up ti 12-13meg for a week or so but since then it has dropped to below 2 and somedays it goes on and off for hours. I have raised the issue with support but I have been told it could cost me £60 if the engineer finds a fault here. I have tried three routers including the plusnet supplied technicolour along with new filters, from the test socket and with all othher stuff (xbox,sky) unplugged. I have been sent this by tech support but its all gibberish to me. BT wholesale and both come back with just under 2meg and I have turned all tablets and phones etc off to see if this did anything.

Re: Slow speed and drop off help please

Hi there,
We've not been able to find an obvious reason for the fault so I'd recommend going ahead with the engineer visit we've suggested.
I really dont want to be forking out £60.

You'd only be charged that if the issue was found to be with your equipment or if the engineer wasn't able to get access to your premises when they've been booked.
