Slow Fibre speeds...

Router says I am connected at 39.9mbps, BTwholesale speed test says 32-37mbps on multiple tests at multiple times of day - all good right?

Wrong! Actual throughput is below 10mbps. All other speed tests show no better than 10mbps.

Working in IT I believe there is significant traffic shaping going on here... Either stop this or give me a reduction on my bill for the lost throughput!

Hi @Chris11123 and welcome to the Community Forums.

I'm sorry to hear you're having speed issues as of recent. Together with our network partners at Openreach we are prioritising customers who don’t have a phone line or broadband connection, meaning there might be a delay in Speed Faults being fixed. In the meantime, please raise your speed fault online at
