Eurobell connection needs replacing

freshflyingfish
Tuning in

I've just moved into a new home and signed up for a virgin Internet and TV bundle. I was eligible for quickstart so took that option. 

When the Internet is running it's fine with good speeds.  However it frequently drops out frequently. I have followed all the reboot and reset procedures but still having the same problem.

The cable enters the house via an old Eurobell box - pic attached. As this unit is at least 23 years old now, I figure that it, and the external cabling, is probably causing the problem. How do I go about getting a engineer to replace the box?

Customer service seems to be non existent post purchase.

For balance, my cable uses my old NTL omnibox of a similar age without any issues.

You need to check your power levels, network log and setup a BQM here www.thinkbroadband.com/ping

Once done, post the numbers and we can comment.

In the meantime, check the connections from your Hub back to the outside box are all at least "finger tight", as loose connections can cause noise ingress.
