Slow speeds

Hi any one help. My download speed seems to be all over the place keeps going up and down also if when there's more than 1 person using the WiFi the streaming becomes very laggy and I'm on faster fiber. I've seen another post on here saying the SNR level was incorrect could this be why I'm having so many problems.

Re: Slow speeds

Hi @stagg1983,

 

I'm sorry to hear that you've been experiencing problems with your connection. I've tested your line, however the test isn't picking up the cause of this from here. So that we can determine the best next steps towards a resolution for you, please can you confirm whether this is solely affecting wireless connections or if wired connections are affected too?

Re: Slow speeds

Hi @stagg1983, thanks for confirming.

 

Testing your line shows the speed is currently banded at 16.5mb, it looks like you were previously only in sync a little higher than this but we have sent off for a reset to remove the banding. This should usually be complete with 24 - 48 hours. 

 

There's likely an underlying cause as to why this happened (it looks like there were some errors occurring) so would be advisable to have a run through our troubleshooting here and get your router connected into the test socket for the time being as shown here.

Re: Slow speeds

Thanks for your reply, please can you let me know when the banding has been removed. Will I receive faster speeds once this has been done? My last provider I was receiving 26mb download speed. Thanks

Re: Slow speeds

Thanks for getting back to us @stagg1983

I can see the request was sent off yesterday so you should hopefully see an increase within the next 24 to 48 hours.

Hopefully, your speeds increase back to the previous levels you had but if not let us know and we'll investigate further

Re: Slow speeds

Thanks for getting back to us @stagg1983 

I'm sorry to see you're still experiencing speed problems. As per my colleagues response, we need to allow 24 to 48 hours which while I agree is frustrating it doesn't include weekends I'm afraid.

If you don't see an increase by the close of play on Monday, please let us know as we will then need to arrange an engineer visit with yourself to investigate further and reset the line manually the old fashioned way.

Apologies for the inconvenience caused.

From 31st October 2022, I no longer have a regular presence here as I’ve moved on to a new role.
