Thanks for the PM
Line test is now showing a potential fault so I've raised this to Openreach as a non-appointed task. If you don't hear anything beforehand can you bump the thread on Friday and we'll check for updates
I've heard nothing yet Chris. Throughput speed is 43.7mbps today, so still below the "guaranteed minimum", but close!
Hi PAH76, the fault is still in the hands of OpenReach. Hopefully, they'll update the ticket over the next day or two.
Openreach engineer came today. Line test showed no problems, but the SNR was set lower than the normal 6dB figure. When he reset it to 6dB, throughput speed is now showing as 52mbps.
Is it not possible for Talktalk to see these figures and make the necessary changes? Seems an unnecessary expensive to send an engineer.
Anyway, I'm happy withe the result. Thanks for helping resolve the issue. I was getting nowhere with the normal Talktalk support people.
I have had exactly the same promises and frustrations. Test after test and promise of another test which would take 20 minutes and I would lose my broadband connection for that length of time.That was 5 hours ago and nothing has happened. I applied for faster fibre on Feb 3, heard nothing for 10 days and my broadband speed never changed. To cap it all, on asking for help and explanations, I received info on the chat line that if "nothing improved in 30 days I could cancel my contract without penalty" That suggests, to me, an attitude of, we can do nothing more so clear off if you like. Appalling service from a company I've been with since Tiscali, my original broadband supplier, was taken over by TalkTalk.
Back to square 1! Engineer came and resolved speed issue on 14th Feb. For the last few days my speed has not been above 40mbps. It was over 50 mbps when engineer left here. Guaranteed minimum is 44.6mbps and it has been proven that my line is capable of delivering this.
What has been changed to create this reduction?
I've checked the connection stats and your line is in sync at 42.1mb. Has the router recently been rebooted or dropped connection in the last couple of days?
Did the engineer make any changes to your set up when they attended?
It appears that interference is being detected on the line and DLM has been changing the profile over the last week.
Hi Debbie, the router hasn't been rebooted at all. it is on 24x7. The engineer didn't change anything at all. He tested the line, which was pretty much perfect. The only thing he did was change the SRN? to 6db, since it was set lower than that, and the throughput speed increased to over 50mbps after that - even high 50s at some times. It now appears to be in the same state as before his visit.
I think the interference detected on the line is resulting in DLM changing the profile and reducing the speed.
Is the router located near to any devices that could be causing this interference? We can raise this back to Openreach who may reset DLM again but we can't guarantee that the speed will remain or start to drop again (if the engineer is unable to detect any faults on the line)
