Hi Ansell,

Whilst I appreciate your frustrations, your post doesn't seem to bear any resemblance in asking for help from anyone, it just seems to be a "rant" which isn't useful in these parts Cry

Why don't we start again from the beginning and see if we can help you out old chap Wink

Try posting some stats from your router with the results from a couple of speedtests, be they from BT or BBmax

I would be inclined to check to see if your exchange is suffering from VP (Virtual Path) Capacity Issues, all the usual stuff, I'm not trying to teach you to suck eggs as you've been around a while now - the more info you put into your post, the more people can help you!

Are you on Broadband Plus by any chance? - If you are, I would recommend PAYG, I'm a convert now Wink

Kind regards,

Roger.

I'm on premier opt 1, and have been waiting over two weeks for PN to get my speed sorted. I am getting vey disgruntled as the problem has been ongoing for the last couple of months.

Operation Data Upstream Downstream
Noise Margin 20 dB 4 dB

Hi Ansell,

Unless I'm mistaken, I cannot see any reference to a BT Speedtest anywhere?

Indeed. It seems to be the lying/cheating type of friend I don't need at the mo:

IP profile for your line is - 2000 kbps
DSL connection rate: 448 kbps(UP-STREAM)

Actual IP throughput achieved during the test was - 1439 kbps

It seems the BT test is telling some porky pies to me. Just when I though the BB+ speed issue was resolved.

Hmmmmph.(The sound of another exasperated customer)

My personal opinion would be that you are suffering from exchange contention, rather that network management issues at our end.
