Hi everyone.

 

 

Like all of you, I am working from home, so I depend on the VDSL line that we have.

 

 

A few days ago it took a dive.

 

Speeds now are only 15456Kbps down and 992Kbps up (15/1).

 

 

My provider is Contact. I have sent them an email but they have not responded as yet.

 

Router = Netcomm NF18ACV

 

 

Do any of you have advice?

 

Perhaps a contact somewhere that could test the line maybe?

 

 

Linetest.nz shows 31ms ping response and Jitter at times.

 

 

Gratefull for any advice or help.

 

 

Keep well,

 

Darren

May sound stupid, but I can't remember "exactly".

 

Was around the 50 mark.. i would say around 54/10' ish.

 

The drop is significant as it was experienced straight away.

Submitting a response here takes a while.

 

 

has your sync on your modem dropped with the speediest speed? or is the sync still 50ish ?

try not to restart your device to often as this can have a lasting impact on your service.

Don't keep powering the modem off and on as this will cause line speed to sync at a lower rate due to DLM

Yup, i could only make an assumption.

 

 

 

I recommend logging a fault with your provider.

Thanks..

 

I try not to do anything. just leave it running normally. Just after the firmware upgrade.

 

Speeds are really low.
Is there anything that I can do /try to get it back to what it was?

 

Here are 4 screenshots of the statistics.

 

Thanks.
