Intermittent fibre broadband service

Reply

I am looking for service support for intermittent fibre broadband service.

 

I joined Talk Talk in January after moving to my new address.

 

I used a secondary telephone socket for a week, which is in a preferred location but is damaged - the connection was poor and I lost connectivity frequently.

 

A BT engineer did some work to the master telephone socket and moved our router there. This improved matters, but the service is still unreliable and cuts out several times a day.

 

I believe the line need repairing, and the master socket, which is very old, needs checking/replacing.

 

How do I go about getting support from a Talk Talk/BT engineer?

 

Thank you.

Hi Kathryncecilia

 

Apologies for the delay.

 

I've completed a line test which hasn't detected any faults but I can see re connections on the line.

 

Can I just check which router you are using? (make and model) I'm unable to connect to your router to check this, apologies for this.

 

Thanks

Hi Kathryn,

 

Thanks for confirming and I'm sorry for the delay. I've re-checked the connection stats and the connection now looks stable for almost 4 days. How have you found the stability since your last post?

 

Thanks

Hi Michelle no we haven't found it to be that reliable over last few days. It was intermittent during a video call today and when watching iplayer 2 nights ago. Usually every few days there is intermittence and we can never fully rely that the internet will work properly. It has been like this since the end of January when we had the service installed. There are a number of connection boxes on the outside of the house which might be contributing to a poor connection. Is an engineer able to take a look at the house please?

Hi Kathryn,

 

Thanks for confirming and I'll take another look now. I've re-run the line test which is still clear, however I can see a couple of re-connections on the line. Does your master socket have a test socket? If it does then would it be possible to connect the router at the test socket to see how the stability compares?

 

Is the voice service also ok with no noise on the line?

 

Thanks
