Broadband Speed

Recommended Posts

I have moved addresses and am no longer within sight of the telephone exchange, but about 1.5 miles from it.

According to the online speed testers, my download speed is now about double what it was. Usually 3.1Mb, although only 2.0Mb was offered.

The only changes in circumstances are:

No longer use a billing agent(Unicom) for phone line and calls ie. back to BT.

No longer use Eclipse as a broadband service provider ie. back to BT.

No longer use a phone line extension cable. Router is now about 3 ft from BT box.

 

Which is likely to have had the biggest affect on the connection speed.

Probably just better wiring in the local loop, maybe it's newer.

So you're with BT? I'm just leaving!! fed up with waiting 40 mins to answer their phone and there being a waste of space muppet at the emnd when you do get through.

 

Its Virgin or Sky combined TV phone and Broadband package for me.

I think the answer is get hold of somebody in this country. The people in India appear to be on commission on what they can charge people. I've had all sorts of bills during the changeover and change of address and change of ISP and change from business to residential, keeping the same number, removing tags etc.

I have to get onto someone in the UK to get them cancelled.

mine seems to be getting better the longer im with bt, still very unhappy with the amount of time you have to wait for bt to answer, then get put on hold for ages, sometimes upto 50 mins.
