Problems with BT Fibre Broadband Speed

  Jodakist 11:55 10 Oct 2014

I have recently upgraded to BT `Superfast Fibre Broadband' but my speeds are pathetic; so after sending several emails to bt over about six weeks, I eventually got an email with excuses in it but it told me to reset the Home Hub and gave a link to their wholesale speed tester and said to monitor the speeds over 48 hours. Well I have tried 20 times over the last thirty six hours, so far on my wire connected computer using Windows 7 but each time I get the message that the system is busy try again later! However, last night I tried the link on my old computer with Windows XP on it and it immediately connected and showed a speed of 28.16 download and 4.98 upload! I have tried it several times since also and it works with the XP but not the 7 or 8.1! I also have a new laptop with Windows 8.1 on it and that too doesn't seem to work very fast. All three computers have the same security/antivirus programs on them; so I wondered if anyone else has had similar problems and how did they overcome them? Any help or advice would be very welcome. Thank you David

OK site's playing up and won't post my links to different speed tester because it thinks they are spam.
