    The response from BT is good, but you are talking to somebody in India, although they are always polite and helpful, it is sometimes hard to understand them, I was told I could achieve up to 5megs if I went with BT, for months I never got more than 485 kbps downloading, I tried every way to try and improve the speed myself, but to no avail, I bought and fitted an Iplate, but got no improvement, I have spent endless phone calls to the BT help desk, they have eventually got my speed up to just over 2 megs downloading and around 450 kbps uploading,

    MAKE no mistake BT cost a bomb and charge TOO much, but in return you get an A1 service(24/7) and i've had 3 outages in 3 years lasting a total of 30 mins.

    I am supposed to get at least 3mbps out of a package supposedly for 8mbps. As I live less than two miles from the relevant exchane (in a straight line the download speed of 0.94 mbps and upload speed of .331mbps are absolutely appalling. I have complained, had the line checked, etc, etc, and all they can tell me is that the speed is unlkely to improve! I cannot get a cable supplier, as the street I live in is paved, not tarmac, and, despite there being a utility strip down the side of the road, the cable companies will not lay it.

    When I chose BT I was told that I would get up to 8Mbs download speeds. When I run your speed test the reported speed of my line is recorded as being able to support 3.42 Mbs but the actual achieved speeds are reported as between 38 and 64 per cent less than I should be achieving.

    I have been with BT 18 Mths now and their service has been terrible. My broadband conection is so slow its only just above dial up speeds. ie not in Mb but messured in Ks and not even many of them . All i can say is the connection is stable but at this speed its sometimes quicker to post a letter. In the 18 mths my service has gone down 3 times each time taking days to get put right

    Broadband connection speed varies from 3000kbps down to 250 kbps depending on time of day. It is usually slow. Lines have been tested by engineer during visit to location and are OK. Modem router has been changed but results are the same on 2 independent computers.

    Considering I'm supposed to get around 3.91 and am only getting 2.5max on a good day.The sooner BT puts down cable then maybe the speed would be somewhat faster

    Speed varies by 100% and is low in the late evenings i.e. midnight. The service is expensive and does not offer any significant advantage. Reporting faults can be a long drawn out process often with language difficulties. Especially annoying if you report the same fault several times and know the solution i.e. a reset of the board in the exchange which appears to have a software fault on it causing a lockup. If you want to stay with them and reduce your costs ask for a MAC code. When I did they discounted by 60% provided I signed up for 12 months. I still went ahead and signed up with Sky. Lets see how that goes!!
