I'm due to go live by 12, but readily things in here is making me think I made a mistake, there's only 90mins before talktalk day I go live but haven't heard anything plus router is showing wrong downstream speed, saying 40mbs but I should be up to 70mbs, between 48 n 70. Ppl have warned me not to try talktalk. I hope they are wrong.

A new service takes time to settle down re speeds etc. It is probably far too soon to judge.

Well it's gone 12 and no fibre, guess should have listened to my customers, so I be phoning up and cancelling in the morning and going elsewhere, there's nothing worse than a company that lies to its customers

Suppose to be the 3rd, after working through the human malware was looking forward to some gaming, great start this is,  just after 12 it says on account there's a delay, they would have known this before, so bit miffed and be calling and cancelling, nothing worse than a company lying to it's customers

Trains get delayed, motorways have traffic jams and occasionally broadband installations get delayed.

 

That's life.

Well apparently there is a fault according to openreach, I find that hard to believe as my old broadband was working fine till it went down for switch, only way there could be a fault if openreach caused it imo

When you were switched to fibre your line would have been connected to different hardware, so if there is a fault with that fibre specific hardware it won't have affected your old service. Seeing as it is an OpenReach issue it is not really a problem TalkTalk have control over, most ISPs use the OpenReach infrastructure, so an OpenReach fault would affect you regardless of ISP

Hi andyb68

 

Apologies for the delay.

 

Your line is showing in sync at 39.2mb.

 

I'm just sending you a Private Message to confirm some details so I can check the predicted speeds for your line.

 

Thanks

Hi Andy

 

Thanks for the Private Message.

 

The predicted speed range is showing between 70 and 48mb, with a minimum guaranteed speed of 41mb.

 

Has the router been connected at the test socket for at least 48hrs without being rebooted? (to allow DLM time to monitor and adjust the profile)

 

Thanks

Hi Andy

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

This help page provides further information on test socket testing Your guide to master sockets

 

We can check the connection stats again in 48hrs to see if DLM has made any changes to the line profile.

 

Thanks
