A short while back I wrote about changing broadband supplier. This is an update to that communication.
It is a few months since the new broadband internet connection started. It appears that my network has settled down tremendously since those early days.
All streaming, file sharing and music systems within the house seem to be working well. Large upload files are no longer causing connection issues.
Bandwidths seem to be approaching 650KB/s which translates to 5.2 Mb/s. This is not bad given my quite rural location and the aging connections within the village and house.
The Wi-Fi provided by the Sky router is pretty good. The signal dips a bit at the extremes of my house (top front room) but otherwise it is fine. The router connects everything that I need to be connected and my initial worries about a lack of “user” options have dissipated. This router and also the free EE one I had before both do a better job of routing that the £100 Netgear router I bought and have since sold on eBay.
Essentially, so far so good.
