So I am starting to get very annoyed at my slow internet. I live a hour and a half or so from London and 45 mins from Camebridge and I don't understand how my internet speed can possibly be as slow as it is. Sometimes I can't watch youtube videos in 144p that I think is just not acceptable.
I did a speed check on http://www.speedtest.net and I was horrified with my results. My results were:
ping: 66ms download speed: 0.47mbps (that is quick for me its normally 0.12) upload speed: 0.36mbps
I am on the BT with up 16mbps and unlimited. In addition I have the most up to date hub. Just to add I cannot get infinity as there isnt fiber optic in my area.
Ok so about my router. It is the Bt Home Hub 4 that I recently upgraded.
About my household. So I have six people in my family who are all avid users of the internet. I did these tests while everyone was out though. All the devices in the house connect wirelessly.
In addition to this I don't know if this would be a factor, but i have a plug in wifi to extend my connection to the other side of the house. It is by devolo.
I just did a check and the town (that is less than five minutes) from me and the same provider I am with does 36mbs. Now either this is lying or I have a problem. I have the latest security for my mac aswell as checked for viruses. What is the problem. Please help!
Any ideas will be much appreciated
