Factors affecting broadband speed

 

Broadband ISP You will see adverts from broadband suppliers offering up to 24mb services. You need to bear in mind that the actual speed you get will depend on a number of factors, these include

  • The distance of the exchange to your home will have a big impact on the speed you are likely to get - you could get the maximum connection speed of 8Mb - 16mb, reducing to 6Mb, 4Mb, 2Mb or less, the further away you are.

  • The length and quality of any phone cabling in your home - the closer you can get your router to the master socket the better.

  • The specification of your modem or router - ADSL 2+ is likely to deliver better speed than a standard ADSL modem

  • The speed of connection between your computer and modem or router (Ethernet is fastest, followed by wireless and then USB)

  • The speed of your computer

  • Ensure that your broadband micro filters are correctly installed and on every point in the house.
  • Your broadband speed will also vary during the day depending on how busy your ISPs network is
