    Possibly, but the general response will be that they will send a techie out to see what the issue is. And you will pay for that techie to tell you there is a problem with your PC or some other BS story.

    Raithlin, you seem to be one of the lucky few who still has decent speed from a 2Mb modem.

    Ok did a few test to see what is wrong with my internet speeds:
    1) Changed the firmware: no change
    2) Changed the location: same
    3) Changed os and driver: stil nothing
    4) Even used a diffrent PC: Nothing

    So is it still my fault???

    Cost me to get a technician out and place an omni on my roof - not something I needed with the 1Mb modem. The test is also slightly random - I get great speeds now, and the next time I run it they are half the speed. This one is a true reflection - daily usage is usually at this speed.

    Good luck ... The only thing it proved when they came to my house, is that the problem was not with my setup, as I've been trying to explain.

    There is in fact base station congestion, and nothing short term can be done about it.

    Before flat-panel antenna (did this test about 2 minutes before the RF Tech arrived at around 2pm):

    After flat-panel antenna was fitted on a 3 metre high pole to the first floor of our place (tested at 7-47pm):

    Um ja, OK.........
    I will rather keep quiet because if I say anything right now I will get banned from this forum for excessive bad language.

    Will rather do more Speedtests later and update again.
