Re: Slow internet

@Gel @The information in your link is outdated and not relevant to FTTC connections. If the OP has consistent slowdowns at peak times which is unusual on FTTC a possible cause is congestion in the backhaul at the exchange known as a hot VLAN. The problem is Openreach will never admit it without a lot of pressure from Plusnet.

@Sug12340  What are you speeds like early in the day and what are your router sync speeds, from the diagnostics page on your Hub or whatever router you are using?
