IP Address

Why when I live in the NW of England is my server IP address in Redbridge?!  Is this what is making my BT Infinity less reliable and slower than it was 2 months ago?

 

Thanks

Re: IP Address

nothing at all to do with your speed or reliability the information on IP addresses is very inaccurate and certainly nothing to worry about

Re: IP Address

See this answer previously supplied by forum member Ectophile:

 

 

"If you plug in the IP address here http://www.iplocation.net/index.php then you'll get four different answers.  The chances are, they will all be wrong.

 

The only location you will ever get is the location of BT's connection to the internet, not where an individual customer lives."

 

 

It will not be effecting your Infinity speed, if you have a problem with that it will be a different reason. If you post more details about it somebody may be able to help.

 

Use this speed test link. Make sure it is a wired connection and once done carry out the diagnostic test and post all the results back on the forum.
