My parents have just had a broadband connection installed through TalkTalk (UK ISP) - The modem sync's at 8529mbps - but whenever they try to download anything they are getting speeds of under 1mbps.
I've gone round to their house this evening and tested a couple of things, one of the tests I done was to test the connection through a wired connection instead of a wireless connection but the speed test was virtually the same @ around 1mbps.
I used a number of speed test sites including speedtest.net and downloaded something from Microsoft and Apple but all tests would only allow me to download @ 1mbps or under.
Can anyone suggest anything to increase the download speed?, surely if the router has synced @ 8529mbps I should be able to download near to that rate.
Thanks in advance
