I have been using bt fibre broadband which states a guaranteed of 49mbps of estimate between 53 and 73mbps.for months the WiFi has been fine but for 3 consecutive days the WiFi has consistently been slow at about 1-3 mbps.is my only option to cancel the bt service since I am paying way too much for this slow speed. Also a bt technician has already come in and even after he left the speed was still bad at 1-3mbps..what am I supposed to do cause I can only consider switching broadbands.
Post stats from your hub. If hh6 then advanced settings then technical log information. If hh5 then troubleshooting then helpdesk
try quiet line test dial 17070 option 2 should be silent and best with corded phone
the speeds you quote are connection speeds not download speeds. There is no guarantee on download speeds by any ISP. Can you run btspeedtester but with Ethernet connection not wireless and post diagnostic results
Sorry I meant to specify but I did mean download speeds.i just did a speed test and got 1.3mbos download and 0.93mbps upload This is unusual since I used to get about 50 to 60mbps download and 15 to 20 mbps upload in the same exact spot. Also the WiFi is still extremely slow even when directly next to the router so it doesn’t seem to be a range issue. After all this happened all of a sudden when it was great for months. In addition I have the bt smart hub which came late last year only so I am unfamiliar with bt hub 6.so what can I do?
Hi @Bopt88 welcome to the forum and sorry you are having a problem with your broadband speed. So that the community can help you please follow the advice from @imjolly and post back to let us know the results.
As you are using the BT Smart hub you can get your connection stats by, Opening a new web browser on your connected device and type 192.168.1.254 or bthomehub.home into the address bar. This will open the Hub Manager. Click ‘Advanced Settings’ and then ‘Technical log’

I posted my stats so what can I do now.also it says my data rate is 62 Mbps when I am no where near reaching that speed a witnessing constant lag when viewing videos.the speed test app still shows something completely different at 1.4mbps
can you run btspeedtester and when first test completes run diagnostic test and post results must be done with ethernet connection direct to hub - not with powerline adapters or wireless
just noticed connection time only 12hrs are you having problems maintaining a stable connection or was that a manual reset
