Re: Speed Halved Since Taking Out Fibre

Sorry, I'm slightly confused here:
Download speedachieved during the test was - 57.51 Mbps
You're getting over 57Mbps download, you should actually only get 40Mbps maximum. Where are you seeing 20Mbps from?

Re: Speed Halved Since Taking Out Fibre

looks like it has been sorted after phoning although I did seem to get cut off from the person I was speaking with so was unable to find out what the cause was without hanging on again for 15 minutes
