Welcome to Vodafone Community
Buffering on I player. Did a speed check, Vodafone app says 40 Mbps. Broadband speed check says less than 2mbps. Anybody suggest why?
Wired connection is 34 Mbps. Speed on WiFi TV is 27mbps , speed on TV upstairs connected through powerline adaptor on ethernet 6 Mbps, speed on mobile phone Moto g5s is 1.86 Mbps. Seems like when connected to 5 Hz is fast and 2.4 Hz is ridiculously slow. Some items only connect with 2.4hz. necet had this problem before. Would my old sky router work? The connection on that was brilliant.
Also, when running on 1.86 Mbps, the vodafone app on my phone says 40 Mbps!! Definitely not the case. Also, the WiFi symbol is full bars. I think there's some dodgy Hardwear being knocked out.
I have just joined Fibre on Vodafone with the superfast 2 package. Does it take 10 days for the speeds to increase? At the moment I am getting rubbish results on Wifi for download yet upload is solid on both ethernet and Wifi. I get like 10 mbps on wifi and 38.2 on ethernet, which is still not guaranteed speed. Yet sync speed is at 67?
A lot of factors can affect wifi speed, particularly router positioning and possible channel interference. If you're getting a good speed on a wired connection, that's the speed you'll get and any bedding-in won't afect wifi. I'd suggest Googling slow wifi and following any advice you find.
Thanks for your reply!
Tbh I think it must be the testing period as my speeds either go to 30 mbps or 10 mbps within seconds of testing on Google speed test. Same with ethernet, its down to 10 mbps now but was at 30 mbps this morning.
I will wait for a few more days to see if its stabilises
