CeeGee:
SamF: CeeCee; Did you ever get your line checked / a splitter installed or are your issues above and beyond that?


No, I didn't Sam, but Snap did.   I paid Snap the fee they requested at the time to do all that. I figured They were the one offering the service and i didn't want to get into arguments later about who was responsible for what if things didn't work.

That said, they did send a tech who installed a splitter.  Given the distance from the cabinet, I get relatively good speed (3 Mbs) between 3:00 and 6:00 am most weeks, so the installation itself appears ok. It worked fine for a few months, but now its just that the afternoon and evening speeds drag to a crawl.




Bloody heck, this is what you get typing on a tablet without reading glasses - that is 3MB not Mb.  Saw Chorus working down the street earlier this week and now the speed is  way up in the evenings. Coincidence? Placebo effect ? Wink

I've seen much worse. Some GZers are only on a few milli-bits per second. Must be excruciatingly difficult to access the interwebs.

I'd expect that would have had something to do with it, Maybe there was a broken backhaul link or faulty port etc for upstream.
These days most ISPs have pretty good morning / day / evening performance so would be interesting asking other people in your area if they noticed a difference.
