Faster fibre broadband speeds are shockingly terrible!!!

First Timer

Faster fibre broadband speed is terrible!! Am getting less than half of that advertised on the TalkTalk website, 38Mbps peak times (8pm to 10pm).  Have done speed tests using both '' and 'speedtest' (Odyssey Systems Limited), on both ethernet and wi-fi, and both report download as about 10.2Mbps and upload as 6.6Mbps.  These tests were done yesterday afternoon at 3pm and one today at 4pm.  Loading pages is like the good old dial-up days 🙂 😄 😄 🙂  TalkTalk say that the connection is fine etc etc but it's been like this for a few weeks now.  Someone somewhere is telling porkies me thinks 😉 😉  Have even powered down the router.
