Hi all, I live in SE16 6xx and I just wanted to say that, while the speeds here are quite low, they are not necessarily as bad as some of you seem to be getting. I am on BE, my connection sits at 5mbps and is actually very stable. Please don't settle for what you are getting now and contact your ISPs because there is a reasonable chance that you could get some improvements.

Also, someone mentioned FTTH at Maple Quays, can anyone confirm?
Its interesting you should mention this. Also in SE16 6xx and my speeds are less than half of this
We have already contacted O2 a number of times over drop outs and low speeds but nothing has changed. We have also tried a number of different modem routers.
This leaves me with only one option but to try another ADSL provider. However with our let ending in July, we may just move.
I have also tried the 3 network with a MIFI device. I don't feel that it is noticeably better and is at times slower.
Satellite broadband is out of the question for us as our landlord is not willing to have anything fitted to the exterior of the property - its also very expensive
The fibre provider mentioned above sounds brilliant, though by the looks of it, only of use to people in apartments?
Edit - yes, Maple Quays is fibre equipped
