When the service was installed, had a connection rate of approx. 146/26 Mbps. Each month this has slowed down to now being under the guaranteed speed.
Tried powering off the openreach box for a while and rebooting network equipment but speed remains the same. Attempted to run the line test which initially suggests a fault but it fails to complete after entering mobile information.
Is there something your end you can try to improve the speeds back to when installed? It was a stable connection so not sure what has happened.

Thanks for your reply.
I've run another line test and this is still detecting the same fault and Openreach are requesting that we arrange an engineer visit.
Would you like me to arrange this visit?

I changed the supplied rj11 cable to a shorter shielded version since the install. There has been nothing else internally, openreach modem plugs into the supplied master socket, no extra internal cables.
I just changed the rj11 back to the one supplied which seems to have slowed the connection speed to 98Mbps. Maybe run your test again to see if this made a difference?

I'm sorry to hear this. I've run a test on the line which has detected a possible fault towards the property. Has the set up changed since the engineer installed this or any new equipment connected to the line?

Not knowing what your guaranteed speed is, I have asked one of TalkTalk's support to pick your thread up and investigate it for you.
They aim to respond within 48 hours (Monday - Friday), but if more urgent you can always try the Service Centre. The posts are responded to in time/date order, oldest first. Please try to avoid posting on here until TalkTalk have responded to you, otherwise, this will just put you further down the queue.

That is what I was trying to prove, which is why I asked you to connect a PC or whatever via a wired (Ethernet) connection directly into the modem's port that normally connects to your router, what sort of speed do you get there? If you can do that when it is slow, then I will know if it is the Openreach modem or your router. Once I know that I can pass this over to TalkTalk with these diagnostics done, which should hopefully speed the rectification up a bit.

Doesn't seem to matter regardless of using an ethernet connection or WiFi, seems to be the openreach box to cabinet degrading bandwidth over time.
Thanks for the suggestion

If you connect a PC or whatever via a wired (Ethernet) connection directly into the modem's port that normally connects to your router, what sort of speed do you get there. If that is about right, what sort of connection is slowing down, wireless, wired or if both, is wired faster than wireless?
