Damn Eclipse Broadband

My broadband has been all over the place again recently, back in March Eclipse my ISP, suggested they would move my broadband line onto a different line card/circuit in the exchange, the Technical Support Engineer’s never really gave away anything tecnical as to what they are actually doing. But today after another discussion it now becomes clear that before I was on a Tiscali LLU circuit, I suspect but I cannot confirm, this, I was moved to this in January 2009, when all the issues started (maybe), although now being moved to a BT circuit, the same issues occurs, extreme hot or cold, the Signal-to-noise ratio rises, and the sync speed drops, and hence throughput is very very slow. Today was the final straw, my broadband speed was as follows at 15:30 GMT. I was told, that because my sync speed had dropped the Profile on the line was slow, and I would have to wait 72 hours before it would speed-up!

and then later it gets worse…

I’ve not done anything, I’ve just returned from a Parish Council Meeting, and now the speed is backup to 2.2 - 2.4MB/s, this is the fastest it’s ever been, apart from that strange blip and changeover!

I put this here, so I can find it later, and refer Eclipse and BT to it! (it’s there test results!)

 For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 600-2500 Kbps.
