I have had 10 service calls due to chronic intermittent failure of my Port on the DSLAM. There are no free ports on the DSLAM and every time a technician puts in a work order to fix my port the technician that comes simply notes "bad port" no free ports and clears the call. I explained to Bell that it is not a great solution to simply leave me in a bad port month after month. They plan tomorrow to move me to s DSLAM that is further away from my house and bring back the signal using bonded pair.
Apparently there are 3 empty ports marked as bad so mine makes a 4th.
It may be a real dumb question but why can they not fix the bad ports?
They are generally in groups, but there's many in the group, 48+.
Eventually, they can send someone to replace the SLAM, but odds are depending on your area, you may see FTTH before they swap the SLAM.
i 've been with bell for 15 years, and recently started have a problem that sounds like yours.
my bell connection hub modem reboots on it's own and then it won't login again - and stays stuck on authenticating and the red light keeps flashing -
bell has sent many techs in the last few months, i think about 8 techs - and they are possibly escalating my issue to their STITCH department.
i have found a temporary workaround when my service is down - but it's a pain to work my connection like this - so i keep calling bell and posting techs...hoping that eventually it will get fixed.
