Hi,

Internet connection has been all over the place for last week or so. Sometimes it seems fine, then other times I can't even get a local website to load.

Speed tests are random, sometimes it goes full speed (mostly only on Slingshot's test) then I will get results showing lower down speed than up. Can't game online with the connection like this.... even viewing websites is frustrating.

Same result after waiting 5 minutes.


Tried multiple times.


Slingshot's speedtest is the only one that comes out the same fullspeed everytime.


Area: Auckland CBD
Plan: 100gb homeline + broadband

Cheers

Not sure what the difference is sorry? Just a filter that comes out and splits into one for phone and one for the modem.

Hmm okay, did you want me to check if it was cabinet or exchange I was connected to? The Chrous website doesn't recognize our address.

Have you tried unplugging everything except the modem (phones, filters, Sky boxes, etc.) from the phone line?

Can you post up the line stats (such as sync rate and line attenuation) shown in your modem's status page? Ideally from when the speeds are bad, and from when they're fine.

If it were me I'd log a support call, not sure how much you'd be able to do yourself.
