Slow Bigpond cable

Answered
I have noticed my speeds have slowed lately and have just run a speed test which has given a reading of 0.55 mbps upload speed. Ive been using Bigpond cable for the last 10 years or so and this us the slowest I have ever seen.
No maintenance or service issues are currently in my area and my account is well up to date so there are no restrictions or shaping issues affecting it.

Any ideas?

Re: Slow Bigpond cable

Have you tried the basics like resetting the router?

 

.55 is very slow indeed, I had it with my cable at one point and in order to resolve it, BPTS needed to reset the line no their end, as there was something going on in the information reaching the router. 

 

So if you aren't shaped, and restarting doesn't work, I would try give BPTS a call (133933) and see if they can get it working.

Re: Slow Bigpond cable

Darryl, whilst everything Dr Qwerty said is absolutely correct, when my cable does things like yours, if you switch off the modem and remove the cable from the modem or wall for a few minutes, and reconnect it, then turn the modem on, if your luck is working, it may do the trick, and anyway BP will tell you to do that as well.

 

Hope it all works

Kind regards
