Terrible connection and speed problems

Good day

I used to have a very stable 10mb line. Sometime last year I got a call from Telkom offering an upgrade to 20mb. Done! Its stable and very quick.

At the end of last year The Troubles start. Disconnecting multiple times a day.

Hours spent on hold for port resets and even a visit from a nice OpenServe tech with Telkom clothing.

The problem does not go away but its better.

Eventually I decide to downgrade back to 10mb.

1st the call center tells me I cant have 10 only 4. This after being on 20 for some time.

A few more calls and Im paying for a 10mb line. Syncing at 6398kbps.

Line attenuation 26.5db down and 16.1db up
Noise 20.3 down and 16.1 up.

Stable at least, but frustratingly slow.

The Trouble started again!

Please help
