Broadband speed

I live in Shropshire so the BB speed is not brilliant. About ".2.00mb. I would like to stream films but the speed is not consistent enough. Any ideas would be much appreciated.
Thank you

Re: Broadband speed

Hi jeremygray,
I've checked your connection and you should be seeing speeds of a around 4Mb/s, is your connection you're using a wired or wireless one?

Re: Broadband speed

Hi having just checked the speed it is today at 11.36 am 4.27mb which is good. Do you think that is fast enough to stream films from Lovefilm as it may not be consistent especially in the evenings?
Thank you for your help.

Re: Broadband speed

That should be fine to stream in Standard Definition. You might have problems if you try to stream High Definition content though.
If you're having any problems streaming, please do let us know though.
