[QUOTE]\nAt home, BT Infinity 76Mb/s service, showed 52Mb/s download speed\non installation (Home hub 3). My oldish Dell laptop generally\nshows 20-25Mb/s on wireless connection, as does my Nexus 7 2012\nmodel, while more modern devices with wireless n show 30-35Mb/s.\nAll show about 9Mb/s upload.\n\n\nOn a recent visit to my son's house in Derby, same BT service (in\nprinciple!), connected to hub (Home hub 5) using hub password (\ni.e. not using Fon), my Nexus 7 showed 10Mb/s download but\n12-14Mb/s upload, as did my phone which shows 30+Mb/s at\nhome.\n\n\nWe had a brief discussion about how relatively slow his broadband\nconnection was.[/QUOTE]\n\nAlmost certainly local Wifi contention issues as every BT modem in the\nstreet fights for control over channel 11. ISTR they have improved the\ndefault settings to avoid this but I don't know when.[QUOTE]\nThen my son showed me the speed on his laptop, again using\nwireless and using the hub password - 72Mb/s download.\n\n\nAll measurements using OOKLA.\n\n\nCan anyone explain the vast difference in the speeds shown on\ndifferent devices at my son's house when they record much faster\nspeeds on my apparently slower broadband at home?\n[/QUOTE]\n\nLook for neighbouring Wifi networks on the same channel and try to pick\na channel that is cleaner or on the less commonly used 5GHz band.
