Re: Slow Broadband

Long lines can be problematic from time to time, and although the BT speedtester shows you have the correct IP profile for your line (at the current sync speed) the throughput is low. Although there are errors there, they aren't large for the duration but could be disproportionate for the amount of data used.
Can you check the following Current Line speed Login required
and the VP Status of your Exchange here
Also can you hear any audible noises - crackling etc on your line when using the phone?
