Same here. Really good signal but very poor and slow connection. C-R-A-P really.

They provided some troubleshooting guide but they don’t work.

Hi thirsty87, sorry to see there's an issue. I've just tested your line and reported it with our supplier. Here's a direct link to the ticket where we'll add updates for you https://www.plus.net/wizard/?p=view_question&id=180099186

 

@AA12 I've just been testing your line and we're not seeing any issues. I'm guessing you usually connect over WiFi? If so I'd take a look at the advice here which should help: https://goo.gl/BBd2Tu

Re: slow internet and and lose connection

Look again, there should be a label fixed to it somewhere.

Re: slow internet and and lose connection

Hello @thirsty87,

 

Thanks for getting in touch. There is a sticker on the base of the hub, under the legs which has all the details that were added to the detachable card.

 

Please let us know if you need any further help.

Re: slow internet and and lose connection

@thirsty87

If you read post number 5 from Adam  you will see that there is a fault on your line that has been reported, so something is being done. I suggest that you look at the ticket referenced in this post as it may involve you having to make an appointment for an engineer visit. Changing wifi channels is a waste of time until the identified fault is fixed.

@Baldrick1 it also says for me to have a look on a website and i have and it tells me to change my channel on my router anf the ticket says it has been passed to the supplier nothing about an enginner.

Re: slow internet and and lose connection

OK, obviously I have no idea what it says on your ticket. All I read is:

Hi thirsty87, sorry to see there's an issue. I've just tested your line and reported it with our supplier. Here's a direct link to the ticket where we'll add updates for you https://www.plus.net/wizard/?p=view_question&id=180099186

I agree that this is far from clear but I presume that it would not be reported to 'our supplier', that is, the part of BT that repairs faults unless a fault had been found during the testing. If there's a fault on your line then changing wireless channel is not going to fix it.

You now need to keep a watch on the ticket to track progress and/or reply to chase things up.

Fix

Hi @thirsty87,

 

I'm sorry for the confusion caused. I can confirm that Adam tested your line and the test picked up a potential issue, so this was raised to our suppliers for further investigation.

 

I have checked your fault now and have been able to get an update from our suppliers regarding the next step towards getting this resolved for you. As this is account specific information I can't go into detail on here so I have added my response to the fault ticket. You can view this here.
