Having been "upgraded" to Fiber 35 on 13/04/2021 I've found the service to be slower than the old non-fiber broadband I had before. I now can't watch Now TV and can't listen to the radio on my alexa without it dropping out or turning off. To add insult to injury I've still not received the code for my Ring indoor camera that I requested on 15/04/2021.
If I'm not getting the service I should be (without having to pay for a new router) and haven't received the code for the camera (as was part of my contract) can I cancel my package and go elsewhere?

I'm sorry to hear this and I will take another look now. I've re-run the line test which hasn't detected a fault. Can I just confirm, how does the speed compare if you run a wired speed test?

Well that didn't last long. Been busy out the house the last few days so haven't been using the Internet much but decided to sit down and watch a movie on now TV tonight. Constant buffering and a mega 1.0 Mbps download speed (when I was able to do a speed check without it crashing).

The new router arrived today and I have just got it all connected. The first speed test was 21 Mbps on WiFi (not had a chance to check it wired yet) and I'm now watching TV through the WiFi with no problem at all.
Thanks again for your help.

I don't have another router so if one could be sent to me to test that would be great. I also remembered this morning that when I was upgraded to fiber my Internet worked fine but my phone line went off. After the BT engineer came back out to check it he discovered that my line had been mixed up with another property further up the road and their calls were coming to me. Is it possible their broadband line has been upgraded instead of mine? I would have thought all the wires in the box would have been upgraded at the same time but maybe not.

Thanks for the update. The wired speed tests also look low based upon the current sync speed. Do you have an alternative router that you can test with? If not then we can send a replacement router for testing purposes to rule this out. I can see that OCE_Arne is looking into your other topic in regards to the code.

Sorry for the delay in running the required tests. I ran a speed test using WiFi on my laptop tonight and had a download speed of 2.3Mbps then the upload speed test started and then the Internet fell over (it was at 0.3Mbps at the time). I then connected the ethernet cable and ran the test again. This time the download speed was 6.6Mbps and the upload speed was 0.9Mbps at the point the Internet service dropped out again and stopped the test.
I also tried to run some speed tests on Saturday night but the service was so poor I wasn't even able to get the talk talk page to load up on my phone as per the screenshots below.
Saturday nights are pretty rubbish when you can't watch the Now TV or Netfilix you are paying for or can't listen to the Spotify you are paying for because the upgraded Internet you are also paying for keeps dropping out. I hope you can help because I'm at my wits end.
p.s. I've still not had the code to get my free Ring indoor camera.

Hi Michelle, how do I do that? Last night I checked a few things and did actually manage to watch TV through the Internet without it buffering. I still only seem to be getting between 8 and 14 Mbps when I'm doing the speed check.
I've also been through several months worth of deleted emails and have no code to get my Ring indoor camera.

I'm sorry for the delay. Would it be possible to run a few wired speed tests using the TalkTalk Speed Tester so we can see how your speeds compare in relation to the sync speed please? When the buffering occurs are you connected wired or wireless?

I'm not sure what speeds I was getting before the upgrade as I never had a problem with it so never checked. It was fast enough to watch now TV without any buffering and now sometimes I can't even launch the app.
The socket at the wall goes into a micro filter then into the router. It hasn't changed since I moved over to talk talk several years ago.
I've checked all my email folders and haven't received any codes for the camera.

I've run a test on the line now which hasn't detected a fault. Just to confirm, what speeds were you seeing prior to this? Does your main socket have a test socket?
In regards to the code, have you checked your spam/junk emails?

I can probably help with your speed issues, but I would need a little bit more information:-
1. What make/model of router do you have (if this is a TalkTalk router, these details will be on a label on the rear or underside of it)?
2. If you log on to this router, what speeds does it say you are getting there, in the current Wi-Fi hubs this is in the initial dashboard area?
3. What was the minimum download speed quoted by TalkTalk?
4. If you have any wired connections, are they as slow as the wireless ones?
