Broadband speed problems in Southampton Area ?

I have a supposed 70Mb connection that has suddenly dropped to between 3 to 4 Mb this evening -are there ongoing or contention issues in the Southampton area ? 

Several reboots and an auto test and no improvements yet

We're just doesn't the road in Whiteley, Fareham and have the same issue - 3MB when it should be 50MB (which it always has been in the past).

Thanks - I am in Park Gate so only a mile from you - so it must be an area problem.

Hmmm back to 69Mb this morning - will have to monitor it to see if there is heavy evening contention or if it was just a one off problem.

Just tested mine and its at 203Mb currently, but its dropped out completely twice in the last hour. Fareham/Titchfield PO14 area. We've been having connectivity problems for the last 4 to 6 weeks where previously it was rock solid and reliable.

I'm in the PO4 area so Portsmouth/Southsea and have the exact same issue. Lovely during the day and terrible in the evenings. I got 0.3MBits this evening which is ridiculous.

Re: Broadband speed problems in Southampton Area ?

Well 25 minutes on the phone to India last night and they blame a local area upgrade which has been going on for the last 6 months and due to end at the end of the month...

However after they played with my connection it jumped up to 23Mb then 38Mb briefly but then dropped back to 10Mb so I went to bed.

This morning I have the max again at 72.74Mb down and 5.11Mb up.

To me it looks like heavy contention and not enough capacity somewhere up in their network....

Re: Broadband speed problems in Southampton Area ?

Back down to less than 7Mb again this evening - less than 10% of what I am paying for so are defaulting on their contract.
