This week was on broadband speeds and getting a discount if you dont get advertised speeds which I like the sound of but their solution to wifi problems in one house was a new BT router. Whadya think if you saw it?
I've been doing a few speed checks lately, so thought I would try the one on watchdog site, it wouldn't link, came back here to do speed check and get 'access forbidden' whats going on.
p.s. just tried again for forth time and it works now
IE moving router away from the landline, ok this applies in some cases, but a lot of landlines are not 2.4Ghz.
Also upgrading your router, I am not convinced that brought their speeds from 1.4 to 14Mbps alone, more likely the new router had another channel in use which could have been attempted on the old router.
Re doing your windows updates, I really fail to see how that speeds up the internet, by that logic when you format a PC the internet would be excruciatingly slow until you update.
For genuine no signal areas a repeater is needed often, not a windows update or a move of the landline.
One thing they did manage to get across was the fact that in many cases it is faults/issues within the house under the control of the buyer that is causing the problem(s). They highlighted the fact that the incoming signal was basically ok while it failed to transmit round the house for reasons which many will know about on this forum
It did fail to mention that one way to get a good signal round the house was to instal wiring rather than rely on the wireless signal from the router
Like all these programmes it tried to do too much in too short a time and ended up failing to be really useful as a result

I would, but I've been struggling to watch videos online recently.
BT ADSL customer getting 3.8 Mbps (0.7 Mbps up) on a new road / new build development
(It was around 1.6 to 1.9 Mbps when I moved in)
CAB not FTTC enabled, not part of the 66% commercial plan. Not a BDUK area. Hoping the council will let VM in-fill.
