slow ADSL2+ speed and dropouts

Level 1a



Like many others, I've been stymied by slow speeds (2 to 5 MBPS down) and persistent drop-outs.  So, I went out and upgraded my modem router to DLINK DSL-2888A (from the old G604T).  However, nothing much has changed.  We also disconnected chromecast to see if that was part of the problem.  We are on the Bundoora exchange in Melbourne.



Level 1c

Same here. So sick of the dropouts. It's been like this for weeks.
