Re: [BC] *frustrated* slow internet speed chat no help
I've never heard of a "disrupter" before - perhaps it is Teluspeak for something else.
Anyway, I'm not sure if this is relevant, but when telus was switching us to a new line, first it came up at 1.5 Mbit. I suspect that's the default. If you're seeing about 1.4 Mbit on speedtest, your line may be misconfigured at the Telus end. Rattle their chain; might have to match wits with the helpline until you reach someone technical.
I've never heard of it either, and I'm an electrical engineer since 1979.
I asked the chat person and they said it means they are seeing a noisy device on my end.
I thought disrupters are what spacemen like Captain Kirk used...
So when I ended the chat session, I basically stripped everything off except one line direct to the modem direct to the PC, and no change. So I doubt there is anything noisy here.
I did another chat, I'm waiting for a Telus call-back.
