I have been having issues with my broadband for the past few weeks now, regularly receiving less than 1mbps download speed. I am thinking it is possibly an issue with my router as sometimes (not always) if I switch it on and off again the problem will be resolved and I will receive more typical internet speeds, however this is only temporary as a few hours later it will slow down again.
Any help or advise will be much appreciated.
Thanks for updating your Community Profile 🙂
I've completed a line test which hasn't detected any faults and your line is showing in sync at 66.7mb.
Just to confirm, does the speed always increase following a power down of the router? What does the speed increase to?
Thanks for your response.
In the past few weeks when I restarted the router it would increase the speed to around 30-40 mbps download speed. This would generally last for around 24 hours before I'd have to restart it again.
However as of yesterday and so far today, restarting the router is not increasing the speed. I have just run another speed test, with my laptop plugged into the router via a ethernet cable, and I am currently getting 2.3 mbps download.
I have run the test on my laptop, tablet and mobile phone and receive similar results. The last test was a wired test on my laptop however I have tried both wired and wireless and results are the same.
Please see the attached screenshot of a service test of my line on your website and advise what this means and what I should expect to happen.
There is currently an issue raised at your exchange affecting voice and BB, I just wanted to check if you are experiencing this fault.
Please can you post back on this thread later this afternoon and we can check for further updates on this.
If an issue has been raised can I ask what action has been taken to rectify this issue? Does this mean an engineer will be sent to look at the line, or will I be sent a new router etc?
I am currently working from home and the lack of internet is making life extremely difficult so ideally I need this fixed as soon as possible.
Unfortunately I am still experiencing issues with my connection. As before I am still having to restart my router at least once a day to restore internet speeds above 1 or 2 mbps. After the restart it increases up to around 30 to 40 mbps.
Please advise if there is anything I can do to rectify this issue? If this problem remains I will need to change my internet provider as I am currently working from home and this is becoming increasingly problematic.
