Good morning, I've noticed that my router sync speed has dropped in the early hours of each morning for over a week. It was 32000kbit/s. This morning the speed is 22274kbit/s. I am on Fibre 35.
I've been trying to rule out other causes, such as my wiring. The router and noise filter are plugged into the test socket and the problem remains. The next step may be to contact BT Openreach, but I am nervous, since their opaque charging system can sometimes land customers with large bills, which are hard to challenge. Is there any way a fault can be fixed without having to get Openreach to visit my home?

The polite and helpful engineer fixed the first fault (reduced speed) in 20 minutes. This was due to a loose connection outside in the line splitter to my flat. He installed a new BT master socket. The old one had a Telewest logo! The engineer fixed the second fault (no dial tone) by swapping my line at the street cabinet. He phoned me to check that my router had restarted.
My speed is now restored to 37 Mbps downstream and 9.5Mbps upstream.

Yes please. The problem still exists even with the test socket and I'm now more confident that it's not my wiring but a problem outside of my control.
Which Openreach slots are available this week?

I'm sorry to hear this.
I've completed a line test which has detected a possible fault towards to the property and Openreach are requesting that we arrange an engineer visit.
Would you like me to arrange an engineer visit?
