DLM and speeds

I don't think as long as I have internet i'll understand DLM.

When I first moved to PN I had 49mb speeds. Fine I thought, then I put on my own modem/ router and gained an extra 5mb, whoopee 😀. Then some 18 months or so later I had a re- sync and lost the gained 5mb- boooo. Never mind I thought, more line stability and the speed will return. Nope, for the last 8- 9 months of 30+ day solid connections the speed stubbornly refused to move (in any direction). Imagine my surprise the other night when we had 2 small power cuts within an hour. [-Censored-] I thought, my speeds will take a hammering. Next evening when I got home, I looked at my BQM which was solid red, indicating yet another disconnection. checked the router stats and the speeds have gone up again!! Goes against everything I thought I knew about controlling line quality.

Re: DLM and speeds

Mine was much the same with PN but since my move to another ISP I tend to get far more resyncs. Slight moves admittedly each time but always in the same range i.e. 78Mb/s plus/minus 1. 25 times since August. Not that I've ever noticed. I do wonder sometimes if it makes a difference if you are using your own router/modem. With PN I did, whereas with my new ISP I'm using their supplied kit.


Maybe DLM just forgot you........... 😀

Ever helpful. Grin Sure, I’d love to help you out. Now which way did you come in?

DLM? SNR Margin? REIN? SHINE? etc.

The sooner FTTP is rolled out to your area the better - you can then forget about all that malarkey!  Smiley
