Re: Slow download speed

Hi there, 

 

I've just checked your account and tested your line and everything looks as we'd expect. 

 

Are you connecting over WiFi? If so can you give a speed test over ethernet ago and see if there's still an issue?

Re: Slow download speed

Tried the bt wholesale speed test with a cable and it was 8mbps down and 9 up, sometimes the speed is back to normal 36 mbps down and 9 up, has my connection at the exchange been conected to congested connection as it seems strange that the upload speed of 9mbps stays the same? We experiened this issue when we joined Plusnet, the enginner moved our cnnection to another line.

Re: Slow download speed

Our tests are showing signs of congestion at your exchange.

Our suppliers advise that extra infrastructure is due to be added on the 27th April. However, this is just an estimate and the resolution date may be pushed back.

I've raised a ticket with our faults team to contact our suppliers and look into moving your circuit to a less congested part of their network at your exchange. Worth noting that this might not be possible depending on how far the congestion goes.
