Bt offers broadband speeds up to 72mb/s , which is pretty deascent , for average home use.
But when looking at other ISP's i see WAY better offers.
Like eir , they offer 1000mb/s , which is 928mb/s faster than BT's fastest.
So why are BT holding back?
The reason this came to my attention is that my BT broadband had a down speed of no less than 50mb/s ever , yet the past week it has for some reason been at a ateady 15mb/s.
And my upload use to reach 10mb/s , and now sits on 8.5mb/s.
and even though the speeds i origionally had (which have for some reason disappeared) are better than what they have reduced to , they are still no where near the standard of eir's 1000mb/s.
BT why wont you do anything to improve speeds.

i dont have hub 5 , i have hub 3 , and i understand its not going to have great up and download speed , considering its 2 generations behind , my issue is 1. why did it suddenly drop in speed and 2. why would someone upgrade to a plan for a max of 72mb/s , when there are others with 1000mb/s
So you must have a white Openreach modem?
Its that which determines the connection speed, not the home hub 3.
unfortunately all the useful stats are held by the modem unless you have it unlocked. post results from dslchecker and btspeedtester diagnostic test - Keith provided the links
