Hi guys, I'm having a right mare with my broadband, the Internet lights are constantly flashing. And getting really poor speed around 3mbs, I've called support twice and gone through all their reset, reboot, speed test, modem mode etc.. Still no help. They just told me its nothing their end. And such leave it for 48hrs and see if it fixes itself
You could indeed wait and see, because often these things do get sorted out. Not by themselves, but eventually a lucky customer breaks through the offshore call centre's scripted sloth, stupidity and ineptitude and manages to get a technician assigned to fix the root cause.
If your connection is still playing up, you could connect to the hub, don't log in, click on Check router status and post the contents of the Downstream, Upstream and Network logs tabs here. Somebody will take a look and see if there's anything obviously out of order.
Alternatively, phone 150, follow the prompts for things like "about my account" until you get to "thinking of leaving", and tell the (UK based) retentions agent that you're leaving because the speed is below the minimum guaranteed speed. They'll pull the necessary strings to get this resolved. Or you can wait for the forum staff (who I suspect are retentions agents dealing with the forum when there's a gap in incoming calls?) though that can take a day or two.
