My broadband is slower than normal, what can I do?
Broadband speeds will fluctuate throughout the day, but if you’re seeing consistently slow speeds, there are three broad possibilities: there’s a fault in your area, something has changed in your premises causing your broadband to run more slowly than normally, or there’s a fault with your connection somewhere. Speak to our engineers on +44 (0)808 2819 500 who will run a diagnostic remotely to determine and solve the issue.
