Intermittant Broadband slow and buffering

First Timer

Have the HG633 Super Router.  For a considerable amount of time i have had on going issues with slow internet and buffering.  Intermittant problems.  I have smart Tv connected via Cat 6 to router.  Sometime when watching a movie or programme it will start to pixelate, buffer and stop / freeze.  it then comes back a short time later.  Access internet pages at time can be slow.  taking some 4-5 seconds to load a page.  sometime the blue bar (page loading indicator) gets quarter the way across and then stops.  after about a min i do a refresh and the page will either load or I getpage not responding error.  when i refresh again it may load up.

I contact live chat, and we went around the usual houses, i then lost internet and chat, and never got the return phone call if we loose you.

The spped test talk talk recommend states constantly that there are latencytest error.

I am getting pretty fed up with the poor reliability of the line.  I have had 2 routers replaced, and currently on my third.  

All the times i have contacted talk talk have just sent a new router, nobody has actually been tasked to physically test the line from the exchange to the cabinet and from the cabinet to my house.  


I have done a Ping Test which varies from 27.470ms - 35.895ms


I have also completed a traceroute which is quite high in ms.


Any advice and guidance appreciated....
