Download the “Speedtest” App onto your Mobile Phone to see what Broadband speed you have coming into your home. Once you have downloaded the App run the test 3 times in an area of your home that is near to your Broadband router. If your Download speed is less than 10Mbps then you have standard Broadband. To get faster broadband you should upgrade to Fibre as this will increase your Download speed to 25-50Mbps.

BT, Sky, TalkTalk & Plusnet all use the same infrastructure to deliver Broadband into people’s homes so if your WiFi is slow with BT switching to Sky, TalkTalk or Plusnet won’t change anything.

If you signal is poor or intermittent then OfCom suggest you complain to your Broadband provider but unless the line is completely dead you are unlikely to get a resolution.
An alternative option is to do away with Home Broadband altogether and to go for a solution that uses a 4G/5G mobile phone signal. However this option will require a strong 4G/5G signal indoors in your home. Also ensure you choose a provider with an “Unlimited” option so that there aren’t any additional charges.
