ADSL sync speed reduced after rain. Think it's a line fault

Level 2
Level 2

I am a TPG ADSL 2+ customer..

Two days ago with the start of the rain, my ADSL connection has gone from 12 Mbps to 1Mbps... Can I please get some assistance from a rep please.

I have done a line check, can hear a dial tone and there does not appear to be noise on the line that I can hear..

(I've done the normal troubleshooting tasks like rebooting router and modem etc)


I have had numerous line faults diagnosed and fixed in the last five years. It's extremely disapointing to think there may be another.

Just ran a remote line test and this currently shows no physical issue on the line.
