Re: ridiculously slow wifi speeds



The connection is downloading data at 17Mbps and uploading data at 3Mbps at the time you took the router stats. But saying that looking at the router stats it looks likely you are below your minimum guaranteed speed (MGS) which is reporting at 18Mbps currently, so I'd do a broadband line test and see whether it will allow you to book an engineer to fix the issue.
