I'm far too tight fisted to keep on buying routers and swapping ISPs.
I may just buy another router so I have a back up option should the current router fail, but struggling to see anything on the market that is likely to outperform my ZyXel VMG8924-B10A at a price I want to pay!
I'm really just trying to understand what the root cause might be to give me an indication of whether an ISP swap might improve things.
I did email a few top end ISPs before Christmas, but they were all unwilling to commit to being able to deliver a significant improvement and there wasn't a great deal of consistency in there suggestions of what might be the cause.
Having tried the Business product and not seen any benefit from the increased prioritisation should at least rule out some of the causes.
I am having an inner battle between the scientist in me that wants to understand why we are seeing the single thread slow down and the pragmatist in me that says just get on and use what is after all a perfectly adequate working connection.
P.S. Tried testing the non-Flash version on the iMac with Chrome, FF and Safari both with and without AV loaded and there was no discernible difference between the results.
