So what we looking at? my connection status from speedtest.net for the first half of the day…. fuming, one of the best days this week and this happens, started at about 3.45 and still managed to pull some money but either way i wasnt a happy bunny!
Having called Zen my ISP which i must add’s customer service is second to none and tried all the usual stuff, different filter/router and going off the master socket they told me unfortunately i live a long way from the exchange (already knew this) and their had been reported line problems over the last 14 days of which BT had already said they dont really care as they have qoted this post code area ‘up to 1mbps’ which is fair enough i suppose but when its already a poor quality line and their are obvious issues as the operator said to me…. their is some extra loss 3dB’s …… im assuming he thought i didn’t have a clue and was a little shocked when i corrected him as 3dB’s = 50% attenuation in power, the image above dosn’t really do it justice as that was one of the better score’s i got, either way i was running at about 1/3 of the usual speed with eratic spikes. And then as if by magic it went back to normal at 3.45…. after all the good races of course. Can’t wait till i’ve moved to an area with a better quality connection. Fingers crossed it don’t happen tomorrow…… pffffft, won’t hold my breath.
