I live in a rural location, with very few houses near me (we are one half of a semi detached and there's only 1 other house within 300m)
Our BT Home Hub 4 connection gves us somewhere between 1-3mbps (which is slow but we accept that based on where we live).
But when I login into the 'public' BT Wifi connection using my BT Broadband account we always get speeds between 12-18mbps.
BT can't give me a reason why other than us being on a different cabinet to our neighbours, which given that we are a semi-detached house doesn't really stack up.
try entering your phone number and post results remember to delete number - then run same thing using neighbours number https://www.btwholesale.com/includes/adsl/main.html
By public wifi do you mean the BTWIFI from a customer hub or do you mean a hotspot in centre of town/shopping centre?
I assume it's a customer hub because there are literally 3 houses within 2-300m (and only another 5 or so within a mile). Definitely no town centre.
I have a similar issue.
My broadband connection is very slow at 0.4Mb down, 0.25Mb up.
The neighbours have fiber, so I now only use BT-WiFi with a connection speed of 1.5Mb from one house and 6.5Mb from another (when it will let me connect).
I have just ordered a fiber connection, it's supposed to be connected on the 11th, should give me around 20Mb.
The problem is because the broadband in our village of ~500 house is extreamly slow the fiber sells out withing 24 hours, then once per month Open Reach install another card giving more fiber availability for yet another 25 hours.
The availability is that bad I wrote a script that I run on a server which polls several availability checkers every 2 mins then sends out an email alert when there are fiber connections available on the street cabinet.
It's a running joke really that Open Reach cannot prediict that the fiber in areas that broadband is <0,5Mb is going to sellout within a day.
So it's BT-Wifi for me or nothing for the last couple of months sice I moved in.
Here's the adsl checker results - it's the same result, and same Marlow Cabinet 2 for each of the 3 numbers I've entered (our house, the semi detached next door, and the other house within 100m).
A couple of weeks ago the checker said May 6th, then on April 27th it went to Available, and then a day or so later it went to May 27th.
I logon to Bt wifi every night now and always get between 14-16mbps, compared to 0.5-1.5 on my home hub 4.
Thanks... So essentially someone (over 100m away - no one closer has fibre or better speeds than me) is getting fibre and I'm picking up the BT Wiifi signal from their hub?
