For around 2 weeks my fibre has been slowing, it got to the point where the service status was stating i was only receiving 9mb instead of the advertised 35-40, so i spoke to the chat team who informed me my router was faulty. The new router arrived on monday and i installed it straight away still no improvement infact it is getting worse it states i am receiving 5mb on the service status.

how ever when i do my own independent speed checks im lucky to be receiving 3mb down

now the chat team keep stating it has a transitional period with a new router but the speeds should not be like this at all. The fibre may aswell be none existent in my house. They have multiple test on my lines and there are no faults. but why should i have to pay for a service of this poor standard. how would they like it if they had to work with conditions like this or in their own home!!

 

This is beyond a joke!!

Hi Tranquilo412

 

I'm sorry to hear this.

 

Please can you add your TalkTalk telephone number to your Community Profile, I can then look into this further.

 

Thanks

I have updated that for you. And yes my router is connected to the master socket and my line is clear to save you asking.

Hi Tranquilo412

 

Thanks for updating your Community Profile.

 

The line test has detected a possible fault so I have raised this over to Openreach to be investigated by a line engineer.

 

We should receive further updates within the next 48hrs.

 

Thanks

Thanks for the fast reply and sorting the issue, just a bit frustrating when I was told on 2 occasions the line was fine by the online chat function.
