15% speed reduction with new router

Message 147 of 147

I finally got around to installing the replacement router as the old one was having to be rebooted regularly. I have been sent an HG633 rather than the HG635 and it is much slower. A full 15% slower and the wifi signal is not as good. Please can I have a replacement 635?

Hi philipm

 

Apologies for this.

 

I've asked our Network Team to chase Openreach for an update and I will post back on this thread as soon as I receive further information.

 

Thanks

Well; I've heard nothing and there has been no improvement. Perhaps your network team would be able to find out just what Openreach are playing at.

 

Many thanks

As I said before, the guy referred up the line and, supposedly, a couple of senior engineers will be looking at cabling in our area over the next couple of days. Clearly haven't done anything yet as this mornings stats were 25 meg down and 0.7 up!!!

 

I'll come back in the early part of next week if nothing has changed.

 

Thanks

Just got a text from Talktalk saying my service issue should have been resolved now. Anyone know what's going on?

Hi philipm

 

Our Network Team have advised that if all testing has been completed with alternative equipment at the test socket then the next step will be to arrange a Openreach engineer visit.

 

I'm just sending you a Private Message to confirm some details so we can arrange this visit.

 

Thanks

Can I have an update on the Openreach visit please? Connection still highly unstable with dismal and variable speeds.

Hi

 

We do see this sometimes with Aluminium cabling in an area. 

 

All customers that have broadband services provided across aluminium lines will have slower speeds in relation to copper as aluminium is not as good a conductor for the required signals.

 

Unfortunately, until BT Openreach replace the lines not much will change.  They are actively replacing these were they can, but this has financial constraints and we are unable to say when this will happen.

 

Thanks

 

Karl.

I'll just throw a bit more into the mix. There seems to be a Facebook group in our village and at least 9 other people in houses within about 200 metres of ours are having issues. Quite clearly, Openreach have a much bigger problem than just something in my home.

Hi philipm,


Sorry for the delay. Unfortunately we're still experiencing problems booking the engineer. Regarding the aluminium cabling, as far as I'm aware Openreach aren't replacing it at the moment presumably because of the cost as there are many area's with aluminium cabling.

 

I'll try to get an update from our network team tomorrow regarding the visit

Another update for you.

 

The engineer stated that our cables were aluminium so can't Openreach replace with copper, given that more than one household is having issues? Alternatively, how would I go about getting a second line which would then be run on copper. Just a couple of thoughts.
