Inverness NSIMD Macdhui exchange problems

last hour or more actual speeds are no were near connection speeds currently eg below, plus upload speeds have been crippled on trying to re-sync.  Contention kicking in or is there a MSO happening?
If anyone is looking at my account yes I know theres a lot of lost connections in the last hour it me manually rebooting, its how my router reboots as in not cleanly.  Also currently on the test socket and no phones connected pps no I don't have a spare router to test with.
edit: seeing as its a nightmare to navigate the portal if having crippling speeds, time to rethink the Broadband Trouble shooter to be Dialup friendly, as those are my speeds atm I made a coffee in the time it took to open the first stage :/

And back to normal, this speed issue is happening fair regularly now, as in once or twice a week at no specific times of the day. Waiting an hour or two and it clears, this all started when BT changed the DMT to be quicker, smoke and fire spring to mind.

Re: Inverness NSIMD Macdhui exchange problems

Something is really mucking up your upstream speed intermittently
Can you try another filter.
I had this problem, although not to that extent, and it turned out that it was cross talk at the exchange.
In my case it happened when the phone rang even if it wasn't connected (I phoned my number using my mobile)

Re: Inverness NSIMD Macdhui exchange problems

Same exchange here; no such problems.

I can't show you my latest BT Speedtest, because it's just caused Firefox to crash and burn...  Undecided

Re: Inverness NSIMD Macdhui exchange problems

Did any BT work get carried out last night on my exchange? It had a MSO on the 12th but can't see any service announcements about any work carried out that is related to it.
Currently testing a new router which is working out better than my old one with speeds etc.  My router logs show I lost sync from 1.45am till 2.50am, so wondering if its a re-occurrence of an issue I had been having with my old router or it BT did some work they didn't tell you about.  If it was work carried out then ok, if not work then I will have to start the dreaded fault reporting.

Re: Inverness NSIMD Macdhui exchange problems

My router hasn't lost synch  for almost three weeks.
ADSL uptime: 20 days, 10:10:49
PPP Session dropped a couple of days ago.
Connection time: 2 days, 19:56:46
No issues with NSIMD here.
ETA: The MSO shown in the Exchange Status Check for the 12th looks like a typo in the list of area codes affected - the HORAM ROAD MSAN 301 : DEGRADED SERVICE showing 01463 in the list of affected area codes is incorrect. The HORAM ROAD exchange is in East Sussex...

Re: Inverness NSIMD Macdhui exchange problems

HI Gus,
Nothing I'm aware of here. Had one at my exchange the other night, went off at 00.34 came back at 01.59. I've a feeling there's time they're doing work which they don't think will affect others, which actually does. Just a theory!
