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 assume you have a Fritz!Box? Reboot that and the ONT first, if that fails follow the following:

Go to http://fritz.box
Login, click on Internet, then Account Information then scroll down a bit until you see "Change Connection Settings"

Change the Upload and Download speeds to 999999 (for testing), if that fixes it you might want to go back in and change it to 102400 down, 51200 up.



If all fails, log a fault with Snap, and also make sure you're not over your cap or nobody else is downloading (you can see under the internet, then connection settings on the Fritz!Box)

Thanks for the suggestion, sadly it didn't work :(, I'll give snap another call in the morning and hopefully they can do more rather then "waiting it out".

Not stupidly low here - but only getting 27Mbps down - as if I've been switched to the 30 Mbps profile. Still getting 45Mbps up though - so a bit weird.

Will give it a day or two, and call Monday if it's not fixed.

I am in Timaru and noticed last night (Fri 9th) download speed has slowed to around 9.5mbs but upload speed seemed normal. A Timaru workmate is experiencing same situation. We have both logged fault with Snap.

Is this only a Timaru or Chorus problem?

I got the same problem, as if I have been switched to the 30 Mbps profile from the 100Mbps (sigh.. again.. but that's a long story..)
I called last night and they 'reset' the profile but no change so far

Had the 27mbps downstream issue last night on Snap UFB when I am on 100/50 plan. Rang them and they reset my profile and now back to full speeds.





Do whatever you want to do man.

I've had a couple of short periods in the last week with erratic VDSL speeds from snap. eg, speedtest.net took 2 minutes to load.

Then, yesterday my modem reset/resynched at a higher rate (from 65 ->67Mbps)

No big deal though, in general you'd expect the occasional small issue (same as when I was with telecom).

FWIW I'm Timaru based as well...maybe a local issue?

On Snap UFB in Christchurch - Currently sitting on



Update after full reset of all equipment including ONT - Thinking the 100/50 plan has been given the 30/10 profile for download

I also have this issue. On the 100/50 plan in CHCH and for the last few days I've been stuck at 27mbps down. I've rung Snap many times and managed to not kill myself with their hold music but their support is next to useless. Each time they say they are changing someone on my profile and give it a while and ring back if the problem persists, this is now getting infuriating.

I'll keep any eye on this thread to see how you other guys are getting on.

Scott.
