I have been meaning to ask . . . Are you connected to an exchange that is still using 20CN equipment? For I notice that the modulation being used is G.992.1 (a.k.a. G.Dmt).If your serving exchange is 21CN equipped, then configuring the modem/router to G.992.3 (i.e. ADSL2) would be beneficial.
yes afraid it's just 20CN ( modern technology not made it up here yet )
looks like the top of the world 'Orkney'
That's unfortunate. Even Weaver, on the Isle of Skye, has been 21CN for over a year. So a curious kitteh wonders just how "up" is your "here"? The Shetland Islands?
Code look up says.FTTC doing Design, live due by April 2017 https://www.telecom-tariffs.co.ukThat's just set the cogs going in my three brain cells I have left.Does the exchange have a Micro wave dish on it somewhere pointing to the mainland or nearby on a mast ? that would be used for the link.Wind = loose dish = wobbly broadband Have you asked some other island residents if they have noticed poor broadband when it's windy ?.
so would that mean when fibre arrives the dish would be redundant ?
Not necessarily so. It really depends upon what plans have been made for the access link (of the telephony and the broadband Internet services) between the islands and mainland Scotland. Upgraded microwave link or submarine optical fibre cables?The planners will look at all options, including the price.
I would think it would be upgraded and possibly solve your problem.But you could get some graphical evidence of the problem and ask BTOR to check that there equipment is all in order, be a nice day trip for someone Do you have a parish council or similar, you maybe could get some of them to monitor there broadband .Found some old posts .http://www.orcadian.co.uk/ongoing-problems-phones-internet-north-isles/http://www.shetnews.co.uk/newsbites/4834-broadband-problems-traced-back-to-orkney-mastIf you are with BT give them a free call 0800 800 151 if you are unlucky to get through to India I just said goodbye and dialed again and I got a UK based call center that seem to get things sorted.Tell them you suspect the radio link needs looking at to the mainland because of the high winds.
