So im a new customer from 28th feb 2017, My speed is great but my broadband keeps disconnecting once sometimes twice a day (that i know about, i work until 6pm). Its quite infuriating as i skype alot and sometimes uploading. Any idea why it keeps doing this?
It's always in the afternoon starting around 1pm. As I had a week off I really got into my gaming but alas never got much done as the internet (TV was also pixelating bad) was going offline every 30mins to an hour and staying down for up to 20mins. I phoned the helpline on Thurs 9th and was told that an engineer would be out on the 14th (yesterday).
From Thurs 9th to the 14th my internet has going down 25 times and each time I have been off-line for anything from 10 to 30mins.
When the engineer came out all he did was to replace the Docsis cable and a new splitter, so the same day the disconnects were back. I phoned up yet again to tell the person what was happing. This time I was told that he could send a signal down the line to fix it and that I will never have a disconnect again, well later that day the internet went down so I just turned off the PC to watch some TV. Hard to watch the TV when it's just pixelating all over the place.
Today at 1pm and then at 2:37pm the internet disconnects again. I ring the help line up. To start off the woman won't take it that I haven't got wire-less and keep going on. For the 9th time "I'm not on wire-less, I'm wired" but she keep blaming my wire-less signal interfering with some other electrical item. After that all she says is to reboot the box and says that will fix it.
Thanks for for patience, I have taken another look and fault ref F005166065 for SNR and FECS has now been resolved.
I have taken another look at your connection and have noticed a small issue with slow speeds at peak times. I have popped the details across to Networks to investigate further, once I have more news I will let you know.
Welcome to the forums, I am sorry to see you have been having trouble with your connection.
I have taken a look and things seem to be ok from this side.
Pop the hub into modem only mode with the computer in safe mode with networking. Let us know if this makes a difference, we want to strip the connection back to basics so we can see where the issues begin to kick in.
It would also help to see a BQM so we can get a better feel of what you are seeing from your side. (Please be aware link is external and we're not responsible for its contents).
