Problems with your broadband dropping the connection or with slow
speeds? Then your internal wiring may be at fault. I can diagnose and
repair faults caused by your phone wiring or sockets to increase the
stability & speed of your ADSL connection. 

Broadband Problems & ADSL faceplate filter

Telephone wiring within a property can pick up interference (noise) from electric mains wiring & appliances.  This noise will reduce the broadband speed.

Broadband speed problems
Very often Telephone wiring has not been Updated/Optomised to work well with Broadband Internet. The very best speed that can possibly be obtained is if you connect your router at your master socket. Your master socket should be connected to the incoming telephone line feed, without any star wiring.  All your extension sockets should be connected to the removable faceplate, the standard faceplate should be replaced with an ADSL filtered one.

ADSL faceplate (VDSL for fibre)

Connecting an ADSL faceplate filter at the master socket prevents the broadband signal from going out onto the extension wiring, this in turn helps stop the noise interfering with the broadband signal.

The other big advantage to a faceplate filter is that it replaces all the micro-filters connected throughout the house, so it all looks a lot tidier.
The other important thing to do is ensure that Electromagnet interference from inside your property is not affecting performance, again this is something I will check.
Electromagnetic interference (EMI) is also known a Radio Frequency interference (RFI) 

ADSL & line lengthThe longer the line, the higher the loss (db)

All figures are an approx guide & show how the
line attenuation affects ADSL sync speed. Also it can be seen that with a
long line (attenuation of 50db plus) 24mbit service is often not faster
than an 8mbit service.

It is important to note that download speed will be less than the sync speed.

ADSL2+ (24MBit) ADSL1 (8MBit)

Loss Sync (approx)
10db         24Mbps           8Mbps

20db         20Mbps          8Mbps

23db          19Mbps          8Mbps

29db         16Mbps          8MBps

35db          12Mbps         6.5Mbps

57db          3Mbps           3Mbps

62db           2Mbps          2Mbps
67db          1.5 Mbps        1.5Mbps
68db May not work at all
