Fibre 900 very slow

Afternoon all hope you are well.

After a bit of advice. Originally I had a standard ADSL with copper cable phonelines with Sky and was getting download speeds of around 4 to 5mbs when downloading etc... I recently signed up to BT Fibre 900 and had everything installed.

Before the install I ran a speed check and was getting around 40/50 mbs through Sky on the speed check. After the install I then tried again and was getting 250mb download and around 50mb upspeed. Not ideal but better than what Sky was offering. Now when I try it now I am getting 50mb download and 50mb upload.

I have tried numerous checkers and they all come back the same. Am I being massively throttled or is this just my broadband bedding in? Or is something wrong?

I have seen other posts with people getting 900mb download and wondering how that is possible? I am getting no where near that.

@honourswordWired or wireless? All speedtests should be via a wired connection.

The recommended speedtest for FTTP is https://fast.com/

Afternoon

Yes it is day 5 of my service. As stated it was 250mbs on my first test but has now dropped to 50mbs download and upload. I knew there maybe some bedding in time but I didn't expect a drop like that. Especially when I am paying for Fibre 900.

Re: Fibre 900 very slow

Just ran that test 45mbs download, 35mbs upload. This is over a wireless connection to my router from my PC in the same room. Is there a way to test the speed solely to the hub? I dont think it is the wireless connection because as I said I was getting 250mbs on my first day.

Never ever do a Speedtest via WiFi because it can affect the resulting speeds. Ethernet is the best for perfect speedtesting.

Re: Fibre 900 very slow

OK WoW, just plugged my ethernet cable in and was getting around 930mbs. My jaw dropped.

Why is there such a massive difference between ethernet and wi-fi? Do I need a new wi fi card?

Re: Fibre 900 very slow

@honoursword probably but you still probably won't get full speed as there are so many things that can affect WiFi performance, even the internal hardware of your pc such as memory speed and size, hard drive performance and storage etc etc etc ... The list goes on and on lol

Re: Fibre 900 very slow

Hello again @honoursword,

 

It's because WiFi can be interrupted & with ethernet there isn't no interruption at-tall. It all depends what WiFi card you got, what is the WiFi card that you've got?
