Is my connection looking ok now then ?

Its been 10 days since I had issues with drop outs and slow loading webpages, plusnet looked into this and found my db was to low they upped it from 3db to 6db but looking again today I see its gone to 9db, just wondering if this is fine ? My connection at this moment feels more stable but ive notice a slight drop in speeds from 14 meg to 11 meg and ping used to be around 15 but has jumped a tad, altho its not the end of the world.
Just wondering if all the above sounds and looks alright again?


cheers

As the SNR db rises the more stable your connection will be but at a loss of Speed as you have seen with the drop from 14Mb to 11Mb, the increase in db to 9db could be a sign of noise on the line which has caused the SNR to rise to keep the line stable so might be worth asking Plusnet if they see something.

Re: Is my connection looking ok now then ?

Your SNR Target has raised as something is causing your SNR to fluctuate, you have noticed this when the connection drops.
Please let us know if your SNR Target goes up further as I wouldn't expect it to be up any higher than what it is on a line of your length.

Re: Is my connection looking ok now then ?

It could be the microfilter, it could be the internal wiring.
Externally, it could be anything from a power cable running adjacent to the copper or a very small amount of REIN from a street light, it's very difficult to say exactly and is very difficult for engineers to spot.

no worries, I wonder if the new light has anything to do with it that's been placed outside my house
