Disconnect/reconnect continuously. Speed? How about almost zero? Area 18

I'm in Exeter, area 18.

Since last Wednesday 22-11-17 I've had virtually zero internet, so speed doesn't get a mention.

Connection goes on and off all the time. At first it was impossible as it disconnected within a couple of seconds of reconnecting. I spotted that the problem was being looked at when I managed to visit the status page using my phone on IDmobile.

But come Saturday, when the Status report had said it should be fixed, all we got was a minor improvement, increasing the disconnect times to about 2 mins apart, with reconnect in between after about 10 seconds each time. It's still the same now.

 

Please remind me what I am paying for?

Hey PeterG, 

Thank for posting and a warm welcome to the Community Smiley Very Happy

Really sorry for the connection problems you're having. It looks like you're using very old equipment so I'd like to replace it for you. I'll send you a PM (purple envelope, top right) with more info. 

Catch you soon, 

Take care.

Hey cheapo, 

Thanks for letting me know Smiley Happy

I've just ordered you a new Hub to ensure you can receive your speed upgrade, please let me know when it arrives. 

Take care.

Connection's bad again this morning. I'm dubious that the upgrade will fix it, but I'll wait and see.
I'll come Bach here and let you know. :-)

Hi cheapo, 

Thanks for the additional info Smiley Happy

Let's see if the new equipment does the trick and if not, we can continue to investigate. 

Take care.

Connection is fine, once again, first thing this morning and again tonight, on the old equipment.

Two different browsers and a video playing on each, no probs.

Shirley it can't be the weather?

(I know I know, don't call you Shirley) ;¬)
