Our internet connection regularly drops, video calls are hazy or break up.
ive checked our speed and it’s being reported as 5.2 Mbps despite us being on Faster Fibre.
Please can this be fixed!?

I am experiencing this also, I normally run around 50-60 but now I'm down at 12gb. This is not acceptable, considering I'm supposed to have a minimum of 44gb.
If its not sorted soon I will be cancelling as this is a breach of the agreement

Thanks, I’ve tried some of those but will try the others. I was testing from a mobile and realised that might not give me an accurate’ reading, but even so I expect it would show a general issue. Cheers

Are you doing the speed test from a wired or wireless device, it is always best to do them 'wired' to get accurate results.
Do you know if the problem is with the router losing its connection to the internet (in which case a light on your router which is normally constantly lit will change colour or flash), or is it that you are losing Wi-Fi connection between your device(s) and your router (in which case the light(s) on the router will just carry on looking normal). Do wired devices lose connection ?
If the router is losing connection with the internet there are a few things you could try :
It would be worth going to the Service Centre to do a test on your phone line, this will indicate if there is currently a fault on your line that might be affecting your speed. You can also access this from the ‘My Account’ site.
Also, if you have a landline phone can you check to see if that is working normally (i.e. you have a clear dial tone and no noise on the line).
Have you tried switching the router off for over 30 minutes, then when you switch it back on it will start a new 'session' in the street cabinet, this can sometimes help it reconnect at a better speed.
If your master phone socket has a test socket then you could also try the router in there, that would then eliminate any of the phone wiring in your home as being a possible cause of the problem.
The staff here won't be around now until Monday, but they should be able to respond to this post early next week to help.
