Re: Broadband speeds dropped to 0.22 Mbps (2105 ping)

Hi @rodgaskell, thanks for your post.


We're sincerly sorry to hear of this speed issue.


On checking the line, I'm detecting a copper fault which is impacting on your broadband service and has resulted in your line being banded (capped) at 1mbps. This has happens as the exchange tries to favour stability over speed and has detected several recent dropouts.


We've raised the fault with Openreach who advise us that their estimated response time is by 23:50 on Wednesday 24th April. If you can let us know as soon as you receive notification that it's resolved we'll be able to remove the banding for you.


There's little point in us doing it now as the fault is likely to cause it to be banded again, almost immediately.


You'll shortly receive notification that we've opened a ticket on your account although we don't need for you to respond to it at this time.


Please let us know if you need any further assistance in the meantime.
