HI All, Hoping somebody can give me some insight about what internet speed I really need/ can expect.
So, currently I'm on the Vodafone superfast 2 plan (advertised at 63mbps). Over WIFI i typically get speeds of 35-40mbps down and 8-10mbps up, according to the Vodafone app the sync speed I'm getting at the router is 45mbps. I'm currently getting a 15% discount from them as they are unable to meet the minimum guarantee of 55mbps. To be honest the speed I'm getting seems sufficient for my needs, but because of this I'm now free to move providers without penalty so I'm looking at my options to see if I can save a few quid.
When I look on the BT checker it says that I can expect 32-46mbps down and 7 to 12mbps on an impacted line (when Openreach came last year they said that the signal drops under the drive and I didn't fancy having the drive dug up to pursue any further), so looks like what I'm getting is what i can expect.
I've seen a £15 per month plan with Shell 35mbps average and they are estimating 38mbps at my address. Given what I'm getting now, do you think I'm likely to get this speed or notice the difference from what I'm on now..
For info, we're a three person household, we only really use the internet for web browsing, Facebook, YouTube. We also do some streaming on iplayer/ itv hub etc on our smart TV box. It's rare for us to do all that at the same time, we don't do any online gaming or anything like that.
If anyone can advise on what they think, it would be appreciated..
