Half million household losing broadband speed of 4Mbps
According to the latest research of TalkTalk it has found out that over half million of homes in the UK is losing approximately 4Mbps of internet speed.
The main cause of this loss of internet speed is poor wiring of the household and lack of proper configuration of the routers.
There are other factors that are responsible for the reduction of the broadband speed too. TalkTalk’s survey found out that 25,000 homes in the UK had not properly installed the micro filters and in rest of the cases the people didn’t even connected the routers into the master socket.
This survey of 25,000 household by the TalkTalk Bright Sparks engineers found out the cause of loses of speed is 31% of poor wiring, 20% requires reconfiguration or proper set up of routers, 17% requires the proper set up of phone socket, 14% required an ADSL internet filter and 13% of the people has not connected the router to the master socket.
