Internet speed

Can't find the thread about trying to get my mobile working inside our house.

We have had Fibre to the Premises installed. They came and did it on Wednesday. Chris uses an ipad and he is getting 600 and something Mb/s. I am sitting beside him and my HP laptop is getting 146 mb/s. Why is that?

I will get round to trying the Iphone 6 via wifi but wondered about this first.

Often it is the WiFi connection that slows things down, I believe - worth checking by connecting by wire to the router.

This has been suggested on recent BBC Programmes.

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

Yes Wi-Fi receptions can account for differences across devices, have you an option to use a suitable cable direct from the modem to your laptop?

Note the BT guys that installed ours explained it can take a few days for the fibre option to tune itself to optimum performance.

I googled and it said that pc's are often slowed down by Chrome etc. It suggested I use something called Restoro which will identify poor performance. I am running it now. Will let you know.

Ah, Restoro want £21.95 to undertake repairs. Is it worth doing?

I wouldn't think so Pat.

How old is your laptop? Maybe it needs a defrag?

Check your speed here Pat, and if it isn't as advertised let the service provider know: https://speedof.me

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

I don't know how to defrag Jean.

If the ipad is getting 800 Mb's then surely it can't be the service provider? Whatever it is it must be the laptop because I am sitting right beside the ipad. Wifi must be working well. They did leave a wifi booster disc but, as I say, I am in the same place as the ipad but getting very different speeds to it.

Just looked at defrag on my computer and it comes back with maintenance being done automatically.
