      Fibre Pro lost 10meg on the download

      Last night for no other reason than curiosity I ran a speed test on speedtest.net using my reference server of Milton Keynes and noticed that my download has dropped from the rock steady 74meg to 64meg with a marginal increase in ping.

      Having tried different speedtest servers and also bbmax the same was confirmed.

      On checking my Openreach modem the line is showing attainable rate 79812 Kbit/s down, however the line rate is 68141 with a 6.1 SNR margin.

      I did reboot both router and modem to no avail and when I called Sky it was after 8PM which is when the fibre team finish apparently.

      All cables, etc are fine and I have the new version of the VDSL faceplate.

      I will plug the Sky router back in when I get in tonight and if it's still down give Sky a call but just wondered of anyone can see a reason for the drop based on the line stats I am getting?

      Hello stranger

      Did you manage to start your BQM? If so could you post the a snapshot of it so far please?

      I haven't heard back yet about the question I asked about congestion. As soon as I know I'll let you know.
