OFCOM'S 7 Broadband Tips
Sunday, April 5, 2020
Use your landline or WIFI calls
You can setup your phone to make calls on your WIFI network rather than on the mobile network.
Move your router clear of devices
Putting your broadband router next to cordless phones, baby monitors, lamps, dimmer switches, TVs and others can impact on your speed.
Lower demands on your connection
Don't watch HD movies or TV shows, play computer games, download videos and make video calls at the same time.
Try wired rather than wireless
Where possible plug directly into your router rather than use WIFI.
Plug directly into phone socket
Don't use an extension lead to connect your router to your phone socket - go directly into the port.
Test your broadband line
Check your speed using online speed tests to see if it matches what you expect or have paid for.
Get advice from your ISP
