Broadband performance and pricing
Anyone else out there paying 2020 prices for 1990's performance?
I currently get a speed guarantee of >1Mbps download, typically never above 2Mbps in practice when it works, for £47 per month. I've been monitoring the speed and have a number of examples of less than, ~0.5Mbps for example, the 1 Mbps quoted minimum recorded.
Thankfully BT have offered me 'fibre' for half that price, but no greater speeds guarantee!
My neighbour, less than 100 metres away, gets five times this speed, and doesn't experience drop-outs that we typically get, especially when it's wet and windy conditions.
All helpful suggestions welcome.
For an ADSL connection, you should be paying no more than £29.99 which includes line rental, but no call packages unless you are still on a legacy deal. That would not include any other extras that you may be paying.
Check your bill again, as you may have noticed a drop in cost a couple of months ago.
Which hub version do you have?

Check for line noise. Dial 17070 option 2 should be silent and best with corded phone
