Intermitent disconnections

Hello! 😀

I do have a ticket open with Plusnet at the moment, but I wanted to share my experiences of my issues to see if anyone has had similar issues, and to see what potentially could be causing this.

I have been with Plusnet for years and years, with no issues. Last Thursday started to get disconnections at random times in the day, the internet will re-connect again after around a minute. 


Some Basic Information:

Area: Bath & North East Somerset

Package: Unlimited Fibre 30Mbps

Router: Netgear Router R7000

Modem: VDSL/ADSL DM200

Last disconnection before this was March 3rd.

What has been tested / tried:

  • We unplugged the Netgear Router + Modem, used the default Plusnet Router for a day, same disconnections occured.
  • We have plugged the Modem into the Test Socket, same disconnections.
  • Plusnet have run a basic line test remotley and found no issues.
  • We replaced the filter with the filter supplied by Plusnet.

The next step is Plusnet is sending an engineer on site to see if he can find an issue, but I'm not confident he will be able to find anything. Any ideas what maybe causing something like this?
