I have been enjoying 28 - 30 down 6 - 7 up connection but suddenly over night I have had a HUGE decrease. Now a small drop in speed isn't so bad but 16 down?

The one thing i have noticed is downstream noise DB gone from around 5.8 -6 to 12.7

Is there a problem my end suddenly or sparks end? I have always had a good 28 connection max been 31

I don't have a master filter as I am unable to afford this at this present time.


maybe someone from Spark could have a look?

Don't know what to do.

hi weetbix43,

 

 

 

based off the drops yours seeing (both in speed and SNR) i'd suspect a fault has occurred here. 

 

Looking at your attainable vs current, looks like the DSLAM is allocating 6/9dB and your modem is pulling back (likely due to unstable connection).

 

 

 

i'd recommend a quick chat with the broadband team.

 

Alternatively, i'm happy to look into it in my free time.

 

 

 

DM me your landline number and contact details.

Then see about getting a splitter installed with a master xDSL jack point

Clothed connection with no master filter is frequently asking for trouble - any other device on the line, including unused jackpoints can have a hugely detrimental effect - and yes, a failure can happen suddenly!

 

If you ask nicely, @hio77 might take a look for you though...

Any unused telephone jack points in the house isolate these from the other telephone jack points back to the master telephone jack point
