Fibre Extra - Huge speed drop and constant dropouts.

This has been happening for a while now. I’m unable to do a wired connection test with the devices I currently have. Can someone please test my line and see what’s wrong? I’ve tried a few speed test websites and the download speed stays at around 1mbs to 2.8mbs. The speed test that is linked in the forum uses Flash which I can’t use, but I will attach an alternate result.

I am confident in this not being a device problem, as I have tested the speed on three different devices.

Hi @Msc,

Please accept my apologies for the issue with your broadband speed.

After testing the line, I have detected a low speed of 3.1Mbps with multiple drops in the circuit and a potential external fault. This has now been raised to our suppliers and the estimated response time is 24 - 72 working hours. You can monitor the progress of the fault here.

Thank you.
