Lowered speed?

With my new router, my speed has dropped. Went back to the plusnet router and I have the same issue. For 2 weeks my speed was a rock solid 65mbit. Now it's stuck to 62-63.
Yes I am aware this is a rather small discrepancy but admittedly I am OCD like that.  Crazy

Re: Lowered speed?

After running diagnostic on http://speedtest.btwholesale.com/, it seems like my suspicions are correct. My line profile speed was previously 69mbit. Now it's 65mbit.

Re: Lowered speed?

With FTTC this means that your sync speed has reduced, usually due to DLM in the cabinet adding 'stability' to your line (often happens if error rates are high).

At any given moment in the universe many things happen. Coincidence is a matter of how close these events are in space, time and relationship.

Oh right. Any chance that it could increase again?
I was having trouble with my internet connection previously but only with the technicolour router. Since using my TP-Link router, I have not yet had a single disconnection from the internet.

Re: Lowered speed?

The router should not affect sync at all, that should be purely between the modem and the cabinet.
Yes, it can go up again (though it can be a bit 'stubborn'), mine's been up and down at least 6 times in the last 2 or 3 weeks (after staying 'steady' for over 6 months).
I can happily live with a line profile in the 60s though more is always nice.
