Internet speed in my new home.....

PostSat Jan 11, 2014 4:49 pm

.......is shite

just over 1 meg

we are with BT as we were advised they would be our best bet

it looks like the main reason its so shit is that there is no F/O in the area and the closest exchange is about 1.5 miles away.....hopefully BT will upgrade it soon but at the moment its very frustrating especially coming from Virgin F/O.... :roll:

haven't took my xbox online yet to see what thats like but streaming videos through it is a no go

i may have to call BT and see if there is ANYTHING they can do

Feel for you mate, stone age! Have you checked the OpenReach website for whether your exchange is going to be upgraded and when?

I was getting that on Virgin.

BT kept sending me letters saying they could upgrade me to Infinity (only an extra 7 quid a month with BT sport thrown in)

With BT Infinity I get

42ms Ping

43mb mb/s Download

15 mb/s Upload

If you can get Infinity, I'd jump at it.
