      Re: Fluctuating speeds and ping on new fibre connection

      Naturally, I would too if this was the case when my fibre went life. Even though you know DLM has probably kicked in, you still worry about the 'what ifs?'.

      What is your sync reading on the hub's maintenance page?

      My fibre went live on Valentine's Day and my speeds were synced at:

      Line Rate - Upstream (Kbps): 9999
      Line Rate - Downstream (Kbps): 39998

      The hub has only restarted once since going live and that's today (replacing a plug socket - so had to turn off electric). When the power came back on, same sync speed as above.

      I'm wondering if my line can maybe benefit from fibre pro.

      Whats your Attenuation and Noise Margin like? That should give some insight if it can support faster speeds

      Well it looks like you have a pretty decent line. As to how much extra you might get I don't know.

      What are the results of the BT Wholesale Checker?

      Re: Fluctuating speeds and ping on new fibre connection

      I am unable to check with my phone number now (since the switch over for Fibre- I am lead to believe I am now fully on Sky's equipment).

      I would assume using my address is quite accurate though.
