Bundled landline disrupts broadband connection

I'm on OCV200 plan. Last couple of weeks I've been plagued with modem resets, crawling connectivity, bad static in phone calls etc... I unplugged the landline phone and internet connection zoomed back up to good fast speeds. I've tried several different splitters. Any suggestions?

Re: Speeds slowed right down recently

Well I'm still dragging along like a slug here... Can't even get a speed test done. It's erratic, sometimes faster, but more often than not slowed up to a crawl. Is there a general congestion problem? Or am I being throttled? What's up?

Re: Speeds slowed right down recently

Hmm well it's better right now - 1.90 Mbps - still not anywhere near what I've been used to, but I guess "within specs". Last 12 hours have been shocking however. Very erratic. I'll see how it goes next 24 hours or so. Thanks.

Speeds slowed right down recently

I have been fairly happy with my speeds these last few months, but the last few days have been very erratic, and last 24 hours or so have slowed right down to a crawl. I can't even get a speed test done.

Re: So slooooow!!!?

OK so what you are basically saying is that I'm waaay below the average (but still in "legal" ADSL2+ range)? (I'm only 50 meters away from the exchange lol!). OK, I will get another modem. I will definitely report back, I'd like to keep this thread active in case it helps somebody else. (Just so har...

Re: So slooooow!!!?

I thought I'd drop by just to post an update. My speeds have been fine since my last post (no fluctuations - quite steady). So, can it really be my modem that's been at fault? Or is it something Exetel's end that has been tweaked? http://www.speedtest.net/result/925697518.png Tell me please, are my ...

Re: So slooooow!!!?

So what do I need to do exactly? If my speeds slow up to a crawl again, I should borrow a modem and see if that changes things? Also try changing the cable that goes from my socket to my modem? The first test you do should be an isolation test, where you keep your current modem plugged in, but unpl...

Re: So slooooow!!!?

Thanks! Yes when I came home from work and reconnected, my speeds are great now! So what do I need to do exactly? If my speeds slow up to a crawl again, I should borrow a modem and see if that changes things? Also try changing the cable that goes from my socket to my modem? If I do that, and speeds ...

Re: So slooooow!!!?

OK well I'm back (spoke too soon), and I'm sad : (

Speeds still slow. I will await a response from my support ticket, and post back results. I hope I can get it sorted. At the moment I am on bloody sub-dial-up speeds lol...

Re: So slooooow!!!?

Well! I just submitted a ticket, and within MINUTES my modem rebooted by ITSELF, and when I went back online everything's running OK (touch wood???)....!? So I'm still in the dark, but I'm suspecting someone on Exetel's end got my ticket immediately and fixed my problem!? If so, may I please say THA...

Re: So slooooow!!!?

Sorry, CoreyPlover. Yes it's continual sloooowness (since turn of this month?). Can't even run a speedtest! (Can barely post this lol!) stats.JPG The thing is, I don't understand these modem stats, so if (after looking at them) you tell me to log a ticket, I will do so. Might not even be Exetel's fa...

Re: So slooooow!!!?

Hi, I'm back! At the turn of this month, things have slowed up again!? Why the sudden drop in speeds right at the turn of the month?

Could someone please check it out for me?
