Why is BT broadband service in reverse these days? I pay for 55 mbps. I actual receive 26.4. I use to obtain 32 mbps five years ago. I have renewed all my equipment and still have a Lousy 26.4. I live in a large Town not the countryside. No hope of really fast broadband. Why? I have raised a complaint but there seems little interest from BT.
As you can see from results your estimated range is 40/25mb due to your distance from your street cabinet. Also from checker your connection speed is within expected level
any line noise. Dial 17070 option 2 should be silent and best with corded phone
the point is, I was receiving 32 five years ago. Now I am being told I should be grateful for 25. Why do BT advertise fast speed connection, like the latest Halo, when in fact many like me it is all a dream. I have box up the road yet I am connected to one 1/2 mile away. Every year we pay more and are receiving slower speeds. There must be many BT customers like me. I have been with BT for many years and I am going to start looking elsewhere. The service should be improving, but for me it is decreasing.
The reality is with FTTC, the more people that get connected to the cabinet, the slower the speed will get, due to crosstalk.
Unless you can find a cable provider, or have the option of an FTTP connection, things are not going to improve, as you will still be connected to that same cabinet.
