      Speed drop since BT infinity

      I used to get a downstream rate of 13000+ Kbps - this has been consistant for over 2 years.
      Ever since BT has done some work and BT Infinity is an option in my area my Downstream Rate has dropped to 11145 Kbps.

      Is there anything i can do about it or is it 'suck it up time' ? I'm abotu 1m fromt he exchange, and had phone disconnection when BT were 'working' on the infinity down the road.

      There are many members who have posted similar claims about a loss of speed after the had FTTC or FTTP installed in the local area.

      Just in case something else is amiss, could you post your router's current stats please? It may well be that after the disconnection you are no longer syncing at the best speed.
