Had Tivo taken out, and left with just broadband. On original setup tech guy had to fit a white amplifier box to split the tivo signal and broadband,this morning after removing the tivo equipment, I removed the amplifier as this was only added when the tivo was installed. After reconnecting the broadband cable to wall box , the signal dropped to 3mbs from 52mbs usually. So had to plug the amplifier back in again (PITA). Is it now that I have to keep the amplifier or should the broadband cable be able on its own now like it was before tivo was installed.
Inside your place there should be a White box on the wall. Inside the White Box should be something called Isolator .. Ontop of the Isolator will be the Connector to which the Cable from the outside will screw onto and at the bottom of the Isolator will be another you screw the cable inside the house too. That is how your Setup inside should now be if you only have broadband (Should not need to have any splitters or anything anymore)
See below to what the Isolator should look like.

Thanks for reply. The amplifier is a powered one .The pic is not mine but off google and is the amp I have installed , the box on wall inside the lounge has what you have pictured, this amplifier is added on extra behind the TV unit and plugged in.
Could one of the VM forum team advise if I still have to have this amp plugged in ( which I didn`t have before the tivo box was installed) or do I require an enginneer to remove it and look at the signal level now. Thanks in advance.
I've checked your levels and they're all looking pretty healthy at the moment. If you're happy to keep the amp, that's fine. If not, I can arrange for a technician to remove it and adjust the levels accordingly.
