My problems pritty much the same as most peoples on this forum bt sent out stuff for infinity and I waited on the engineer to come out ( taking a day off when ive just started my new job). The engineer comes out and starts to set it up, then he discovers we have home hub 2 from our previous broadband with them and not 3 so he sais he has one in the van and goes and sets it up and it doesnt work. He sais to wait a few hours and it might work and if it doesnt to phone bt and get them to send one out. I asked him to phone his suppervisour for me and he reffused. So I waited a few hours and nothing worked so I phoned up and they sais theyd send out a home hub 3 and it took 5 days to get it. I finaly set it up and it worked but the speed was at 7 mb/s and hasnt changed past the 10 days that they say to wait. So I phoned bt and they done line tests on the line and I was told they would phone back which they didn't. After the time bt said theyd phone back I got an increased speed to about 15mb/s but its only sometimes most of the time its around 7-12 mb/s. Im sick of phoning and getting someone who cant understand a word I say because I have a thick scottish accent but it shouldnt be a problem to a brittish company as I work in England and everyone I work with can understand but bt customers services cant be based in the uk at all because I find myself repeating everything I say on the phone to them 5 and 6 times and even then I dont think they understand. Can anyone advise me of what I can do about this problem of my internet speed ?

Are you sure its Infinity, as the speed seems a bit slow.
Does your setup look like this?

It's definitely infinity option 2 and it looks something like that but the white box had been attached to the wall bye the engineer. Anytime I phone they never have a clue its brutal Im out of ideas thinking of just canceling it as Im not paying for a service Im not getting.

Disable AV software whilst testing as well.

The speed test was done wired. This is the same connection speed I got with my old bt broadband. Ive got virgin fibre optics in my other flat and its always been the exact speed they told me it would be from when I booked it.
Another thing is the home hub 3 wireless connection is the worst. I can have my pc sitting next to the home hub with wireless connected and I get 50% signal ( I checked it wasnt the wireless adaptor I had bye changing it with another one but that was the same) do you or anyone else know if I buy a wireless hub from pc world or somewhere else and put it on insteed of the bt home hub 3 will it work ? Im sick of getting treated this way all I want is what im paying for, bt's service is atrocious. There quick enougth to send the bill out but not quick enougth to supply the service there charging for.
