Tiscali Broadband

Has anyone had any trouble with their Broadband speeds, at the moment I am suppose to be on 2MB speed but am only getting anywhere between 260kbps and 650kbps.

Might be an idea to ask the people in the helproom forum Shazzy. Don't forget to tell us who your ISP is.

On the left hand side there is a "search" box. Type in tiscali and see if any of the other threads it brings up can help.

Hello again Shazzy. I've done a bit of digging around and two things crop up repeatedly.

1. Tiscali may be having problems at their end.

2. Most broadband users have a contention ratio of 50:1. This means that if 49 other people are using broadband on the same line/exchange as you, then your speeds will be slower as the system tries to even out the bandwidth so that everyone online at that moment gets a similar speed.

Like I said earlier, go to the helproom forum and ask them. Some very clever bods in there and some of them are Tiscali users.
