      Speeds Just Do Not Seem Right...

      Hey!

      I had Fibre fitted for just over a month now, and i have this feeling my speeds are not matching what it should be. Below is my speedtest.net result and after some bad maths, i come to about 4mbps on average? Where i am only maxing out at 1.3mbps on a good day. Now i was getting 900~kbps on my normal Sky Broadband connection. So something is up, seriously...

      Speeds Just Do Not Seem Right...-2017942784.jpg

      Does anyone have any ideas? I'm not over wifi, i am over Ethernet and connected at 100 (Sky router does not support gig Ethernet no?)

      Thanks!
