I had good broadband speed until I moved and paying for 100mbps but only get on average 40mbps here. The distance from the cabinet to my house is only about 5 metres as it's very close. When they installed the connection they've put a Wideband Attenuator of 6dB on the back of the router so is this now slowing the speed? When the Engineer connected it he also could only get it to run at an average of 40mbps but said it should settle down and go to the 100mbps. It hasn't!
A couple of weeks after the new connection was put in the old router failed and it was replaced with the latest Hub3 but the speed has remained the same so not the router causing it.
Paying extra for a 10mbps connection when only averaging 40mbps seems to be ridiculous and now seriously considering dropping it to 50mbps as the current connection has proved I don't need 100mbps especially as only me on it. To add insult to injury I had Virgin contact me offering a package with greater speed. You've really got to be joking when the connection will only reach 40mbps!
Does anyone know if the speed would increase if I removed the Wideband Attenuator?
