We have put together a short survey to capture your feedback in terms of what BT can do when you experience home Wi-Fi issues. We would appreciate it if you could take a couple of minutes to complete a short survey. Read more from here, Fix my home Wi-Fi
I've been on an FTTP connection for a few years now and have been consistently getting the advertised 150Mbps connection I'm paying for enabling my wife and I to work from home with zoom etc all whilst the kids are streaming & online gaming and without the connection breaking a sweat!
However as of Friday its all gone a bit south!
The connection is struggling to support one device. I had to ban the kids from streaming/gaming on Friday just so I could work. Streaming, when they did attempt it, was intermittent. Websites are really slow to load and more often than not are timing out. Its a nightmare just trying to sign in to to the BT website.
I reset my smart hub and wifi disc back to factory to see if that would help.... It didn't. I have noticed (but may just be coincidence) that a new firmware update was pushed out last night so as of 1:15 this morning the hub is running v0.26.03.01286-BT. My connection is a little better today, we've been able to watch a couple of streams but browsing the web is still painful! Seems to work fine for a few minutes at a time then goes back onto a go slow. The bt wholesale speedtest (https://speedtest.btwholesale.com/details) reports my current download speed at 52.23Mbps, about a third of the advertised speed, though I'm not sure I believe it given the number of websites that are timing out on me!
I've also tried with another router (Technicolor something or other from a different ISP) and am getting the same symptoms so I'm pretty sure the problem isn't at my end!
Is anyone else having similar issues at the moment?
