Try a reboot then, they will ask you to try this anyway so you may as well get it over with before wasting time in a queue.

I get around 17 Mbps down and 14 Mbps up at home which is about the same as I was getting when I was on O2.

Try putting it into airplane mode and then back out again.

Re boot since got almost 20 meg down

Upload shoots to almost 30 meg then Sharp drop to 2-5meg.

Seems a bit better though certainly not the o2 stable 20up/10down-not that I upload anything and not much downloads from Xs.

42 meg d/load

30 meg u/load

This morning from Xs 4g data

Is this luck or does it suggest 63mb fibre upgrade has been applied,.

This is a very confusing post, are you testing over 4G or (as I expect) over your broadband?

Re: 2 meg data speed honestly

Yeah it prob isn't valid question as the speed increase is from sky mobile iphoneXs

maybe I'm next to a mobile transmitter today.

I'll delete next post with screen shot.

@Donfor

Sky Mobile just piggybacks O2 so you'll get similar to speeds to whatever O2 gets. The speeds can vary day by day and hour by hour depending on location.

Not necessarily @jamesn123

Until recently I was getting 2 meg.

Today over 40 up 30 down.

Not at Home though maybe I'm closer to a mobile  transmitter or mast.

Granted my enthusiasm incorrectly thought the 63 meg offer had been applied which of course is unrelated.

Re: 2 meg data speed honestly

@Donfor It completely depends on your location, time and current population of the area. E.g. At peak times during the day my 4G speeds can drop below 5Mbps but If i go 1mile down the road later on in the day the speeds come up well above 50Mbps. Thats just mobile networks for you unfortunately

Re: 2 meg data speed honestly

Since returned home.

30 meg up 10 down.

The recently suggested reset from another forum user has indeed sorted my mobile data speeds
