As a bonus but I'll add humour is subjective and most on here are as funny as a night in a hole with Bin Laden and the boys.......

 

 

Had huge issues with the internet in our home, we have been told it is probably down to wire interference so had to resort to having the sky hub box running out of the master socket in the utility cupboard which in turn means unless we want the phones ringing in there we don't have a landline, are there solutions? Rewiring external? Would BT infinity help at all? I'm am at the end if my tether with this ha ha

If you're not in a Vigin Media cable area you're fucked. Anything that routes through BT lines is dependent on how far you are from the exchange from what I understand. Virgin cable gives me 150mb/sec...and if I want for a little extra 200mb/sec.

 You've tried to wind me up in all kinds of ways, Barry.  This might have cut closest to the bone.

I never owned a Spectrum.  How dare you?

Update as I know you've all been waiting for one, well not only do I have bad wiring in the house but also a weak connection from the box/BT side, bizarrely I have to contact Sky who in turn contact BT for them to sort out. A fellow on my road works for BT and did the check today, I also found out that no one answers the their helpline which is mildly ironic.

And what is even more ironic, is that when you finally get through to the British Telecom "helpline" -- after waiting for ages on hold in the queue -- you'll be transferred to someone in their call centre in India -- who you'll spend the next hour of your life trying to actually understand and communicate with, over a dodgy noisy line, and all the background interferance from thousands of their co-workers, also dealing with angry Brits who's Broadband is fucked, and cannot understand the dude trying to help them fix it.

Export is a positive thing generally. It is intelligence however, that should be responsible for deciding what you actually export, not profit. lou_eyessky

Good luck getting it fixed though mate. It sucks not having access to the net from home.

why does bad wiring in house cause problem? Ain't you using Wireless?

My advice is:-

1) Bin BT off and get cable internet.
2) If 1) is not possible, move house to somewhere that does cable internet*

* Yes, I have chosen houses this way before.

Very, very easy solution. Get a multiple phone set. One can sit in the cupboard, and you can plug the others round the house.

That's what we do.

I'm getting sucked in again 

 

Our Sky router is plugged into the master socket as always thought this made sense. We also have our phone hub plugged into it as well.

All the phones in the house are connected to the phone hub wirelessly so no need to use any of the spurs.

We did that as we had problems with the wiring of the phones the house when we moved in.

 

Would that solve your problem or are you not happy with the internets you are getting from Sky ?

 I'm only getting 5.5mb from the master socket and also the BT test plug in, from the spur phone lines around the house it was down to 1mb due to data bleed, I have it in the master socket in the utility but am fucking loathed to keepit there as I am converting the garage and that will be the walkway through to it so obviously dont want any sky hubs etc in a corridor.

There are two issues,data bleed that I will have to sort out as I am liable (external wiring and trunking through walls to socket around house) and from the BT end in which I can only get at the very maximum 6.4mb from the master socket which woeful and advertised as 9mb to 17mb.

They are running tests and will send and engineer out and proabably have to retrain the lineor something, I want 4k netflix so need good wifi (or plug in) and also I want a Kodi box, slow wifi is absolute shite.
