Significantly lower speeds

Hello all,

Just done a speed test. I am promised 200 Download and 12 upload. However, it is much lower today, especially the download. I have tried changing channels and rebooting, nothing has changed. We also had an outage last week for 7 hours. Not fair. Here is the speed I am getting: http://prntscr.com/dovn2r

I took this less than 3 minutes before this post, so we are outside of peak time when it is halved.

Thanks,

Josh

Re: Significantly lower speeds

The speed is tested on my PC with an ethernet connection.

Re: Significantly lower speeds

I should probably add that when first fitted in October, speeds were 150 Download and 13 Upload

Re: Significantly lower speeds

Still in the 'Christmas period' where everyone are trying to download new games etc + much much more people at home.

Have you been testing speeds all the time throughout? Is it only today it's just started?
