I have been pushed from my old 500GB naked ADSL plan and my internet speed has been absolute non existent since this occurred I have contacted Vodafone numerous times who have said this should not be happening and have not given me any resolution. So at the moment i cannot download any large files via iTunes as they keep timing out youtube keeps reverting from HD to lowest quality making anything unwatchable to me. Vodafone did promise to get someone from there customer retention team to give me a call within 3 days which has not happened and that was over a week and a half ago. So I have laid a complaint with the TDR and will be moving all my connections from Vodafone to a provider that actually cares.

Hello... Our robot found some keywords in your post, so here is an automated reply with some important things to note regarding broadband speeds.

 



 

If you are posting regarding DSL speeds please check that

 



 

- you have reset your modem and router

 


 

- your PC (or other PCs in your LAN) is not downloading large files when you are testing

 

- you are not being throttled by your ISP due to going over the monthly cap

 


 

- your tests are always done on an ethernet connection to the router - do not use wireless for testing

 


 

- you read this topic and follow the instructions there.

 



 

Make sure you provide information for other users to help you. If you have not already done it, please EDIT your post and add this now:

 



 

- Your ISP and plan

 


 

- Type of connection (ADSL, ADSL2, VDSL)

 


 

- Your modem DSL stats (do not worry about posting Speedtest, we need sync rate, attenuation and noise margin)

 


 

- Your general location (or street)

 


 

- If you are rural or urban

 


 

- If you know your connection is to an exchange, cabinet or conklin

 


 

- If your connection is to a ULL or wholesale service

 


 

- If you have done an isolation test as per the link above

 



 

Most of the problems with speed are likely to be related to internal wiring issues. Read this discussion to find out more about this. Your ISP is not intentionally slowing you down today (unless you are on a managed plan). Also if this is the school holidays it's likely you will notice slower than usual speed due to more users online.

 



 

A master splitter is required for VDSL2 and in most cases will improve speeds on DSL connections. Regular disconnections can be a monitored alarm or a set top box trying to connect. If there's an alarm connected to your line even if you don't have an alarm contract it may still try to connect so it's worth checking.

 



 

I recommend you read these two blog posts:

 



 

- Is your premises phone wiring impacting your broadband performance? (very technical)

 


 

- Are you receiving a substandard ULL ADSL2+ connection from your ISP?




I am the Geekzone Robot and I am here to help. I am from the Internet. I do not interact. Do not expect other replies from me.

Peter Reader is a robot so dont expect a proper reply ;)

Can you post your line stats so ppl here can take a look and might spot something thats been overlooked...

Ive had opposite experience with V/fone so far - I had a rough experience with them years ago and left but have recently come back and found things are a lot better, getting detailed responses from the CSR's about my queries whereas last time it was purely "Yes/No" responses.  Network has also been good, get good speeds all times of the day.

Most people with connection issues end up finding it is a wiring issue somewhere, and 90% of the time going to another ISP gives the same problem.... so ensure EVERYTHING has been checked, or you'll just end up in the same boat with a different captain...

My line stats haven't changed and my property was completely rewired 2 years ago the problem i have is there so called traffic management is making my internet very poor which never happened until they pushed me onto there unlimited plan without my consent which i did sign a fixed term contract for the plan i was on i consider it highly suspicious that you can move the post so to speak mid way through a contract time frame.

Without providing any information about your problem it's not possible for anybody to comment on it.

If you were connected to a Conklin for example and your problems are related to this, it won't matter what ISP you move to - your results will stay exactly the same.

@OP

Feel better now? It seems as though you're using the forum as a soapbox or open letter complaint rather than seeking help to resolve your issues.

I can assure you that your results have nothing to do with our traffic management policy. I can have a look at your connection if you like, please private message me your customer information.

Customer has no interest in having this resolved with us and is dealing with the TDR. I think we're done here.

I offered to help you - you declined stating you're dealing with the TDR. I'm sorry if you're feeling let down by the people you were dealing with before, but feel that I should point out that my career on Geekzone (and in public forums in general) would be remarkably short-lived if I wasn't in the habit of following things up.

The decision to either accept my help or not is up to you.

Don't worry about the past. I'd take up Demeters offer if I were you.
