We recently changed to BT broadband and were quite pleased to be getting about 1.5Mbps. Two evenings ago, I spotted that our hub was displaying three connections and simultaneously our internet speed dropped very significantly so that it was not worth switching on. I assumed this was no coincidence and have opted out of BT-wifi as our speed was OK but not that brilliant and we are in a rural era - am I right?
What interests me is the way BT's broadband speed reported that we were getting 2Mbps into the house but 0.4 to the PC (there was no one else online at the time I did the test). thinkBroadband reported 0.4Mbps as did another site. What is the explanation for the difference?
