Q - What happens afterwards?
A - We're always on hand should you have problems, we also constantly monitor the network for potential problems, if something goes wrong we'll probably know about it before you do. Internal factors at your home or work can have a big impact on the quality of your connection, please have a read at our WiFi guide here.
From time to time the Broadband speeds we will be delivering to you will be affected by peak usage periods.
Peak periods can be anything from everyone sitting down to catch up on their favourite shows at the same or everyone streaming the worlds biggest events like the world cup.
We will do our best to deliver the best service to all our customers.
Q. Why do peak periods affect my internet?
A - Peak periods cause the broadband connection to be shared between everyone using this in your home. So when you have more than one person using a 10mbps connection the speed is split between each user for example 4 people using a 10mbps connection each user will have 2.5mbps. High usage periods put a load on our entire network and we build our network always with the peak usage in mind, building in extra capacity and leaving slack in the system.
