Well sheesh

Just spent the best part of an hour on the phone with my ISP. For some reason my internet speed is very low. We arent sure why. I was thinking it was because of so many people being online, but the guy said that that shouldnt matter, I have Efibre, so my speed should be mega fast. And it isnt. He fixed a few errors on my modem, and reset it. Then it wouldnt reconnect, so he ended up having to change my wifi networks password, now I just hope I can remember it in the future. So far its working now but the speed of downloads is still quite low and sometimes a download stalls or is interrupted and doesnt complete. Its so frustrating.

Also my sky Q box isnt working right, I want to access my recordings, I have to use an app on my phone to do it since the Q box is inaccessible, and when I launch the app it tells me I have no Q box, but I do have one. I was in touch with the accessibility team at sky and they are looking into it for me. The guy I spoke to was incredibly nice. He said they’d sort it for me as soon as they could.

Its just not my day today. I also didnt get to go on my slimming world online group tonight, so I am a bit pissed off about that. I really wanted to go on, I felt I needed the support. Oh well, there is always next week, I just hope tomorrow will turn out better than today has for me.

  1. Most internet companies suck in my experience, and because they all basically equally suck they don’t have to worry about competition. We have the highest speed our company provides and certain devices are still slow on it. (my xbox in our bedroom is extremely slow for downloads and/or online play. Luckily I don’t play comparatively online. lol My laptop is semi fast with downloads and connectivity etc) My husbands xbox is extremely fast and he plays online competitively with no lag or issues, but his is hard wired.

    Also regardless of what your internet provider tells you, it does matter how many people are connected or using the internet at a time considering each user online is pulling bandwidth. It seems to especially matter when we are downloading big games or files. When the other one using the wifi gets off while the download is in place, it noticeably speeds up . It can also help to turn internet off on devices you are not using at the time as WIFI can draw bandwidth even when idle. IE: Your phones, tablets etc…
