Sure Signal - Slowing down my broadband

2: Seeker
Hi I've had my sure signal 2 for about two weeks, but its really slowing down my home broadband> My broadband speeds without SS connected are download 395kbps and upload 481 kpbs. When SS is connected they drop to 198kbps download and 280 kbps upload. This is without SS being used for any calls. Is this normal?

Many thanks for your post about the Sure Signal using up your bandwidth. I can appreciate how this would be frustrating for you.


We have a thread already in place where we are collating information about ISPs and routers. If you'd like to post the requested information in the linked thread then we can pass the information on to our support teams for further investigation.

Sure Signal uses all my broadband Post number 19 lists the information we require.


As a matter of interest, are you using any Apple equipment on your router? It's an avenue we're currently investigating Smiley Wink

Hi Fionawhyment,


Thanks for providing your details there.


I can see from the figures there that you are experiencing quite a difference in speeds, so I've forwarded your details on to see if we can identify what is causing this. As soon as we have any information we'll post back to let you know.
