Re: Worst ISP

Hey there HNKS,
Sorry to hear that you're having streaming problems Sad
Are you able to provide a little more information, such as the current speed you're achieving: http://speedtest.net (Select the server location as London, UK) and also if you're connected via ethernet or wireless.
This will allow us to help identify the cause of your issue and work out some resolution for you.
Regards,
Matt

Re: Worst ISP

What anti-virus and/or firewall software are you using? Have you tried temporarily disabling the anti-virus whilst attempting to stream something.
Also, which streaming sites?

Hi HNKS,
Sorry to hear that you're having streaming issues.
You line certainly appears to be stable:

Does this happen on more than one device?
