Re: 0.5mbps broadband...what are my options?

As in go on Speedchecker app and that's what it says.

Not sure on specific router, think it's something made by Netgear.

Ok, are you using a wireless or wired connection when running the test? There's probably not a lot of point trying to investigate if there's a speed issue, if you don't think there's a fault.

In short, yep. 0.5mpbs/3mbps. Neither very appealing for a business.

@cgfw201

Not sure how many properties are near you but have you also had a look at a community funded project?

You maybe able to use Government vouchers to contrubute towards the cost too

https://communityfibre.openreach.co.uk/ is one example out there
