Why is my broadband not running at the ‘up to’ speed?

The ‘up to’ speeds advertised and listed on broadband deals don’t really reflect the actual speeds most of us will get from our broadband.

The ‘up to’ speed is the maximum possible speed that a type of connection can support, even though you’re unlikely to come close to that speed in the real world.

There are a variety of reasons why broadband speeds slow down and you can’t get the maximum ‘up to’ speed on your home broadband.

The top two reasons are electrical interference, and the broadband ‘rush hour’ that occurs just before and after work and school, when a lot of people are all trying to use the connection at the same time.
