Is your Broadband Speed slower than you'd hoped?
Have you run a broadband speedtest above and found out your broadband speeds aren't quite what you'd hoped? Well there are several reasons why your connection might not be running as fast as you'd like. Below are some reasons why your line might not be running as fast as you'd like and advice on how to get the best out of your connection:
Note: If you are a Freeola customer experiencing broadband problems over a BT telephone line, we require statistics from BT's own speed test tool before a problem with your line can be investigated further. Visit http://speedtest.btwholesale.com/ for this and follow the on screen instructions.
Generally, the further your premises (where your broadband connection is located) is situated from your local telephone exchange, the slower your connection will go. Broadband users in a urban area will typically have faster connections when compared to that of users in a more rural location. Moving house is a bit extreme though, right?
Another major influence of your connection speed is the quality of the cabling/wiring within the premises of where your broadband connection resides, e.g. your home or office. The only possible solution to this, as you can probably tell, is an expensive one of getting internal wiring re-wired. This could potentially be very costly and time-consuming though, and offers no guarantee of improving your broadband speed.
There are several bits of equipment that could help to improve your connection speed. Firstly, you'll currently be using either an ADSL Modem or an ADSL Router. The more recent routers and modems tend to support higher speeds.
You may also have heard about the BT iPlate, which is a simple device that plugs into your phone socket, and works to improve broadband speed by cutting out interference from the 'bell wire' which used to create the ringing sound on old phones. You can read more with our BT iPlate Guide or buy an iPlate for £9.99 from the Freeola Shop.
Use Anti-Virus software that won't slow down your browsing, such as Eset Antivirus when scanning.
Where possible, use a wired network in your home or office as opposed to a wireless network. This improves not only speed, but security too.
Turn off unnecessary programs on your computer when they aren't in use, such as P2P clients and music/tv streaming players.
