Slow broadband speed

Joining in

Why is the broadband speed significantly reduced in the bedrooms compared with the living room where the router is? The house is not big, and we don't have lots of devices connected at the same time.

That's WiFi for you on cheap rented kit!

Confirm you are getting full speed to the HUB over the VM network:

Is the house constructed of foot thick stone walls - or iron rich Victorian red bricks - or with insulating foil backed plasterboard walls - with underfloor electric heating cables ..... any of which would put you in a nice "Faraday Cage" and block you wifi signal 😎

More likely just reduced signal and set up at the locations - what Hub model is it and what channels are you using?



I do not work for VM. My services: HD TV on VIP (+ Sky Sports & Movies & BT sport), x3 V6 boxes (1 wired, 2 on WiFi) Hub5 in modem mode with Apple Airport Extreme Router +2 Airport Express's & TP-Link Archer C64 WAP. On Volt 350Mbps, Talk Anytime Phone, x2 Mobile SIM only iPhones.
