Your exchange is probably getting saturated... That can happen. But to be able to help more, we (the collective wisdom here) need to know more... How far from the exchange you are? Is the speed better during some hours, or is it all the same through the day?
Thanks for reply, I am appr 4k plus from exchange yes speed sometimes is 10% faster,
but why in the beganing of contract last year I had close to 5Mbs and 2.25 today???
Telstra hepl Call centre is in Filipines and they have not much to say or fix - repair.
4KM is on the extreme outer limits of reach of ADSL.
Have you tried an isolation test?
Have you plugged any new devices into your phone line?
As for previous speed better, that's an answwer Telstra need to provide.
Hi @Bobpl, welcome to CrowdSupport.
@ForensicsGuru and @Jagaf are probably both on the money, the speed will be a combination of pressure on the exchange and being right on the boundary of getting an ADSL service. The only thing I will add to that is that the line will have undergone wear and tear over the last two years, further degrading it's ability to carry a signal over the distance. In all likelihood, it's a combination of all three scenarios.
Do you use the line for calls at all? If/when you do, have you noticed if there is any noise or static? This would be indicative of a greater line fault, and the noise/static would interfere with the ADSL signal as it travels over the copper. If you don't use the land line, and you have an old phone lying around, plug it in and have a listen. If there is noise, give 132203 a call to report a noisy line. I'm confident the resolution of that will improve your internet experience as well.
An iso test (instructions: http://tel.st/wsey) will determine if any of your other equipment plugged into the line could be negatively affecting the internet service.
