I'm looking at moving to a flat & have just been told that I can only get speed of 1-3mbps. I was shocked at this but due to the location nothing can do about it.
Is this speed accurate & has anyone any experience with broadband this low?
Will I be able to stream Netflix BT TV, BT sport & all other stuff used with broadband?
Any help & advice much appreciated.
Im looking at moving to a flat but have just been to check broadband deals & I've been quoted that the speed is 1-3mbps is as good as I can get due to location of the flat.
Has anyone had broadband this low before & are the BT speed checkers accurate for this low speed?
Any help & advice much appreciated
That is drastically low speed and will be pretty much useless for Netflix etc.
@Dizzie40 welcome to the community and thanks for posting.
What results do you get if you enter your details on this availability checker?
As it will only take over when your broadband fails, it doesn't help you much.
Have you considered 4G broadband?
@Dizzie40 4G broadband is basically a slightly more powerful mobile receiver that either plugs into a PC etc or a hub. It connects to the 4 or 5G network to give you a usable internet connection. The costs are normally higher but cheaper than paying for an infrastructure upgrade. If you run a speed test on a 4 or 5G mobile, you'll get an idea of what speeds you'll be able to get.
Another option is a Starlink satellite connection but that'll cost about £90 per month plus £500 for the kit and a connection fee.
