Wildly Fluctuating Fibre Speeds



Recently upgraded to Plusnet Fibre - and whilst, yes, we have certainly noticed an improvement - the actual download speed is subject to massive variation...a good example:


I've just downloaded a 2gb xbox update - The download speed 'mainly' sat between 1.5 and 4mb/s...but was prone to spending periods around 900kb/s(!!!) but would occasionally sit around 8-12mb/s and even sat up around 40mb/s for short periods...this was reflected in the download progress bar which would grow very slowly then take massive leaps! 


Frustrating!  This is reflected in speed tests done on a laptop or tablet.  The xbox (and other devices when I checked) was the only device connected to Wifi at the time when I did my 'analysis'...


So...any ideasHuh

Could be a Wi-Fi issue. Do you get the same fluctuation on a cabled connection?
