    Is it me or the WiFi in the UK is really slow
    TalkTalk is very slow but how about Sky
    My WiFi is about 0.34 Mbp/s and its EE
    How about others?

    Back in Asia, the speed for Wifi is on average 67.68 Mb/s
    Is it me, or is the WIFI in the country bad?

    I got EE and its good but these days its bugging out.
    BT was horrendous and in my opinion is till is
    Virgin is expensive for a average wifi

    BT supplies majority of the cable lines in the country. Virgin media is the only other firm to install its own network.

    Virgin is really good but it goes down like 3/4 times a year. In my area everyone uses virgin so I like to think BT makes life easier.

    I know the feeling. Talktalk had us on some lengthy contract. I remember counting down the weeks before we ended up switching. There’s no greater nuisance than talking to Raj from Talktalk tech support

    Nothing compares talking to a Indian man somewhere in Asia about a First world issue
    "I got issues on my computer" - " I cannot feed my 22 Kids"

    I was complaining today and was talking to a man called Sandeep and he made me feel guilty with his nonchalant tone!

    TalkTalk is the worst one. I've been with them since 2017 and on the month my contract ended I decided to switch to Sky and I get good speeds now.

    I don’t know how accurate this is but on my PlayStation my games download super quick. For example red dead takes no more than an hour (with both discs)

    I left my PS4 on overnight to download red dead on talktalk WiFi. WiFi in the UK is either a rip off or cheap and shitty.

    For Me it states 99+ Hours, and slowly comes down. Also it lags out a lot!

    Currently with Sky and whilst I never run into any issues they don't provide anything close to the speeds that they promised. Paying for 50mbps but get 25-29mbps.

    Can't complain because I remember the days BT broadband would cut off the worst times and forced a nigga to a read book or sleep early
