Slow fibre speed

Hi I currently pay for fast fibre with a fibre boost .

I did a speed test the other week which was kind of surprising as my upload speed was around 17 mbps and the download speed was exactly the same

As I currently pay for a fast fibre and have the fibre boost I decided to do all the checks and over a few days did all the required checks. I retested my line and got the same results so I decided to contact talk talk who in the end did some tests and sent me a new router . Even after setting up the new router i'm convinced its the line speed which is the problem not the internal equiptment.

As Ive just renewed my contract recently and talk talk commit to a minimum of 40 mbps line speed I will have no choice but to terminate my contract which im legaly entitled to do if the situation is not sorted

Can you post your router sync rates here? What is your guaranteed minimum and how does this compare?

Well that does look a bit low, but it is hard to judge in isolation. I have flagged this up to the support team, give them the usual day or so to respond.

Thanks for your help

 

My Guarenteed speed is between 39 and 40 Mbps

And the other thing that doesn't look right from experience is the download speed is usually a lot faster than the upload speed which isn't the case on my line

That sounds like an estimated speed range to be fair, your guaranteed minimum will be a single figure. But let's leave it for the OCE now.

Hi andy0910

 

Apologies for this.

 

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

 

Is the router connected at the test socket? Have you tested with a different router?

 

Thanks

Hi yes I've tested with 2 routers but I've just plugged my line into the test socket just now

Hi andy0910

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

Would it be possible to leave the router at the test socket for 48hrs so we can see if DLM adjusts the profile/speed in this set up?

Yes that's not a problem if the line looks ok maybe I'll have to get a new master socket fitted as the one installed now is very old

Ive just done a status check and the results are 

The health check we carried out on your broadband line shows that recently you have not been receiving the estimated download speed we guaranteed when you signed up to TalkTalk.
Estimated speed: 39 Mb - 40 Mb
Recent speed: 16 Mb
Please use our guide for tips on how to improve your broadband speed. If you can't resolve the issue please speak to our team.

 

And ive logged into the router and its showing

Hi Andy,

 

I'm sorry to hear this and thanks for trying this. Is the voice service ok with no noise on the line? When you tested the replacement router did you also replace the microfilter and cables?

 

As soon as we've confirmed this then we can pass this straight over to our Network Team to have a look at the broadband speed.

 

Thanks
