Getting less than half the advertised speed?


[link to this post]
 
I was with BT for 2 months and left due a bit of a fall out, but with BT on Infinity 1 I got a constant 50mb day or night on Wifi

Today went to Talk Talk, I went for there superfast option, 76mb, My line can handle over 80mb.

https://www.thinkbroadband.com/_assets/speedtest/but... This is Wifi, Wired I get 41mb. No where near 76, still not even close to Infinity 1.

I have talked to Talk Talk who are even more clueless than BT which I didn't think was possible,

I really can't be bothered with any more fighting, I just want a service that works, any ideas or can I leave at this stage?

Not all Wi-Fi routers are created equal. First step check if device using 5GHz or 2.4GHz bands

Do you get the speeds you expect over Ethernet?

I set up hotspots for both, On BT 5GHZ really made a difference of at least 10mb, On Talk Talk no difference at all, in fact I'd say 5ghz is worse. Over ethernet nowhere near 76mb, 30-40mb.

Right folks this is a ethernet test. https://www.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest/15131941664... Full speed, almost 76. Now the question is whats wrong with Wifi, its less than half and I've only got my laptop connected.

So their router is not good for wi-fi, your choice to buy an access point to give better wireless or not
