BROADBAND:I have dismal broadband too in Pinchbeck

Regarding Geoff from Pinchbeck’s concerns on broadband speeds, here in Surfleet Seas End I have equally dismal speeds taken at midday: download 4.6mb and upload 0.4mb and most evenings, weekends or school holidays speeds are close to zero.

Any complaints to my national provider are met by a response that BT’s “through wire” broadband infrastructure is to blame and their policy of overloading this type of operating system is causing the problems, adding also that businesses in private homes and people uploading large files like movies, games and music added to any problems in peak usage periods.
