im hoping this will reach service technicians at talk talk, but if this isn’t the right place, grateful if somebody could advise.
back in Dec 2020, I was receiving fibre download speeds of approx 65mbps, and upload speeds of approx 15-18mbps. In the last few months, my speeds have been decreasing, not changed any packages or anything, and I even have a fibre speed boost applied to my account. For example, today my speed tests show approx 38mbps down, and approx 8mbps up.
would anybody be aware of why my speeds are decreasing?
ive spent 3 hours on chat this morning with technical support, they had me removing BT faceplates and using test socket etc (which couldn’t get a connection for some reason), and resulted in the agent telling me that I am receiving the minimum guaranteed speed, and closing the chat!
this doesn’t explain my my speeds were 65mbps in Dec, but today 38mbps (even with a speed boost on my package). This is quite a drop, and wondered if my line is being throttled down or anything that limiting the speed?
I read somewhere on here about a DLM reset rectifying others with same issues, how do I go about this please?
any help appreciated.

I've re-checked the connection stats and I can see that the sync speed has increased again since we last checked so it looks like DLM is still optimising the connection.

Yes please, if you ha e exhausted everything else, and that there will no cost to me, then if this is the next step, then please arrange.
To be clear, I plugged a landline phone into the test socket, and this works perfectly with no noise on the line etc, therefore the router should be able to also get a connection, but it doesn’t.
Please advise on when the engineer slot is likely to be once booked, and will this be a TalkTalk engineer or BT Engineer Re the test socket issue please?

Thanks for testing the replacement router. I've re-run the line test now which is still clear. If all testing has been completed at the test socket with alternative equipment then the next step would be an engineer visit to the property. Would you like us to arrange this for you?

I have now received my replacement router and have this morning connected it to the test socket - same issue, the router is staying at flashing orange LED and is not getting a connection.
Im using everything new out of the box, but same issue as my previous router. Does this determine that there could be a fault with the test socket, and please can you advise on next step.
For now, I will connect my previous router back in the usual (non-test socket way) so that I can keep a connection.

No not yet, this is the reporter speed to my router in my TalkTalk account that is decreasing, even before the nee router has been received, so it seems like something is being reduced speed wise even further, would you be aware why this would be please?
on 27-07-2021 06:05 PM
The speed to my router seems be decreasing too - dropped from 49 3 days ago, to 41 today. This is before the new router has arrived, and wondered why this would be?
Please see screenshot from the TalkTalk Speedtest within my account (still with download speed classified as ‘poor’:

Yes the Sagemcom WIFI hub has been dispatched, you should receive this within the next 48hrs.
In regards to the test socket, did you try connecting with a different microfilter?

Thanks @Debbie-TalkTalk ,
Please could you advise if the latest version of the talk talk router has been dispatched?
Also, with my current router, it wasn’t connecting when I connected to the BT test socket last week, but not sure why, but will attempt again with the replacement router when it arrives.
Would you be aware why I the router wouldn’t connect to the test socket (as have definitely been able to test this way previously?
on 26-07-2021 11:18 AM
The replacement router is on its way. Please can you connect the router at the test socket for 48hrs (without rebooting router)
We can then check the connection stats again to see if DLM has made any changes to speed/profile with the new router at the test socket.

Thanks @Michelle-TalkTalk ,
I’ve changed my talk talk router in the last few weeks (just because the stand broke on the previous one), no improvement, but happy to test another router if you can arrange for one to be sent?
I wonder if I am on the correct / fastest package and that the speed boost on my account is still effective as it used to be?
Any help appreciated as this needs to be resolved.

line test in ‘my account’ reported that there are issues with my connection and download speed is poor (see image attached). There is an ‘open case’ in my account as we speak, but not sure of next steps.
The issue is that I’m only receiving download speeds of approx 38, but a few months ago I was achieving approx 65 (and uploads of approx 18-20) but nobody can explain why (regardless if I am currently receiving the ‘minimum download speed’)? The line estimate in my talk talk account shows that I should be receiving between 41-63, but always achieve less than this, so there must be an issue.
I even have a speed boost bolt on applied to my account, has this dropped of or for some reason not effective (as it used to be)? Is there a faster package that I could be on or something too)?
Stability seems to be fine - we had a power cut in local area a few mornings ago, and the only other times the router has been off is when I’ve been asked to reboot/test etc by either yourself or online chat.
Appreciate your help to resolve this as nobody can explain why this has dropped in last few months.

Line test is passing and your current sync speed at 41.5Mbps is above the guaranteed minimum. How is stability at the moment, I can see that there have been some disconnection over the last few days?

Hi @Chris-TalkTalk ,
as requested, I removed the filter from the other phone socket, and have left my router off for approx 40 mins.
just ran another speed test, no improvement, and still only receiving the same low download speeds of 38mbs.
Something isn’t right, perhaps some limitation on my account or something for some reason not allowing me to achieve the 65mbs that I used to (although nothing has changed here).
please can you advise on next steps.

Yes, could you remove the micro-filter from the extension socket and connect the telephone directly. If you have a prefiltered master socket then you don't need a micro-filter at the extension socket. Could you then switch the router off for 30 minutes, switch back on and retest
Sorry, I don't know why the speed improved yesterday morning
