Broadband - Dropped by 66% Speed Since Outage In Area This Week

Hi,

 

LS13 area there was an outage effecting this part of the country earlier in the week. Now speeds are a much reduced. Getting 70mb when I normally get 230+ minimum.

Check the service status link above, that should tell you if they know about any faults. Other than that it might be worth giving tech support a call on 150.

VM_Phil: Could well be an isolated break in service, ours went down @3weeks ago  for the day with interrupts for 3/4hrs over 4days.

Turns out updating equipment job but not made aware?

Checked with both daughters this morning, both use network from home 9.00am to 5.00pm, no reported problems within the last 10days.

(Both end up coming to use my network if they have problems)

Currently getting a nice 210Mb down 21Mb up on gamer.

Re: Broadband - Dropped by 66% Speed Since Outage In Area This Week

Ok so found the issue but can't fix it.

 

On three of my PC's - wired - the speed test is from 80-91mb. On a fourth PC it is 211+.

Weird right?

All PC's are wired no WiFi except for phones. In the networks and connections in Windows the three slow PC's will only connect at 100mb speeds so I'm guessing this is it. The fourth is connecting at gigabit speeds as it should - all PC's are capable of gigabit network (and worked fine....). I'm guessing the superhub has had a meltdown of some sort?

I would try just using what you have determined as the 'good lan port' wire up each computer in turn, doing a speed test would confirm.
