7.4 Mbps

and 0.8Mbps

 

JUst hoping someone can just tell me if these speeds are fast or nor

Hi Patrick

 

Our Network Team have advised that the next step will be to arrange an engineer visit.

 

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

 

Thanks

I'm really sorry to hear this.

 

The line test is detecting a possible fault. I have escalated this over to our Network Team and I will post back on this thread as soon as I receive further information.

Getting really cheesed off now. Recent call from your technical team who was organising a visit from Openreach,cancelled as apparently our issue as been sorted. Not sorted at my end as still only running at only 10.4mbps download and 0.34 Mbps upload.

im now wondering if this will EVER get sorted

Good afternoon Debbie and Chris, just a quick update I installed the wifi hub as soon as it arrived. Within minutes we was getting 28mbps download and 6.7 Mbps upload. It's actually settled down now at about 24 though.

Can I just thank you both for the hard work that you've put in to getting this issue sorted

 

regards

Hi Patrick

 

Thanks for keeping us updated.

 

Have you also tried powering down your router for a full 30 minutes and then running a speed test following this?

Morning Debbie the engineer came out earlier and tested everything,according to his equipment we had got 25mbps coming into the house. I checked on my computer and was only getting 13 Mbps,he is wondering if the problem is the router as that is the only thing he can't check into. The new router is on for delivery early this afternoon.

I will get it changed over straight away and give you an update then

 

thank you for being on the ball once agin

 

regards

Hi Patrick

 

Our Network Team can see that this is a repeat fault and that numerous engineers have investigated this fault.

 

The line test is still detecting a possible issue so this would require another engineer visit, apologies for this. Please can you provide availability for this visit AM and PM?

 

Our Network Team have also sent you a Wifi Hub to see how the connection compares with this router.

 

Thanks

Since the engineers visit last month it was really good to start with,after about 2 weeks it dropped off quite dramatically and that's where it's been since. This weekend as been an absolute pain to be fair,my parents wanted to talk to their grand daughter in Australia and Skype just kept cutting out for them,it was a case in the end of giving up. Not really the sort of service that we are promised and the speeds
