Halved speed…

I just wanted to have agreed internet plan which all parties would be fine adhering to, turns out this isn’t the case. After agreeing to a full fiber 145 for a reasonable fee, a few weeks went by and it was quality. 


however. It turns out my Estimated download speed: 145 - 160Mbps is more like 70mbps, now people. Im all for a little sway each way. This is more like flipping the boat over in a riptide…can I at least have an answer as to why my speed is nearly halved?

Thanks I guess.

@Creed01 This is probably a BT/OR network problem, especially if it has suddenly happened. Unfortunately, I can't offer an explanation or solution, but I have asked for the topic to be moved to the Full fibre board, where someone may be able to help.

With Full Fibre you should get close to the advertised speed over a wired connection.


If you're not getting said speed then there's a network / account problem somewhere.

Hey there @Creed01 and a warm welcome to the forum.


There is an issue on VLAN according to the tests so I have raised this over to OR and they should fix it within 72 hours but I will keep an eye on it for you Smiley
