According to the BBC, the average broadband speed in the UK is 64Mbps - an increase of 18% during lockdown, despite what one might have expected. Why then, do I struggle to get 1/10th of that? When I perform the online speed test, my results are on average around 4-5 Mbps - well below the "guaranteed" ~30Mbps (which I would be happy with, despite being 1/2 the national average).
I have 3 children at home trying to access online learning, but I have to decide who gets their lessong because I can only effectively have 1 child online at a time - not to mention I have to use my mobile data for work, at great extra cost.
I am at a loss for what to do to resolve this. My account online describes my internet performance is "poor" but as yet, customer support has not been able to anything beyond offer generic advice.Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
