Thanks Verdun & Woody  I know there isn't anything wrong inside the house the line and sockets have been checked even though EE have insisted they are sending out another router  Without being too boring there is a drop wire that needs removing from the star wiring outside it is giving priority to the phone line and increasingly slowing down the broadband, it was wrongly installed. I hear Verdun shouting compo  

After being  I can laugh at how someone in India can flick a switch and increase the download speed from 0.28mbps yes that's all it was to 8.06 , however being only half a mile from the exchange we should have 15meg unless EE are capping it, which the call centre seemed unwilling to discuss

We will see what happens on Monday but we aren't paying, and the engineer goes up his ladder before setting foot inside.

Good morning all 

Broadband engineer coming Monday morning after OH had two long and barely understandable conversations with a call centre in India They are still adamant that slow speeds are due to inside problems, which is incorrect as our ex BT broadband engineer friend has checked everything out and has told us exactly what the problem is with the wiring outside. The call centre wanted OH to dismantle the router  I think they would then have found an inside fault and charged us which would cover their costs of sending an engineer to rectify outside problem  

I hope Beaus isn't using the same supplier or we might not see her again!
