Hi all,

So I'm moving house and taking a look at the broadband speeds in the
local area shows something... suspicious.

namely that in the area I'm moving to there is a paltry less than 1mbit
and often around 0.33mbit. whereas just up the road 4/5mbit is fairly

I'm wondering if its a problem with the local lines, and if so, who I
would call about it? is it worth asking the engineer that connecting my
line next week to take a look? I'm not really looking for a miracle, but
I know that I used to live in the same area and got around 3mbit, until
it dropped to 2mbit. eventually suddenly shifting to 1mbit one day.

Thanks, Gord.
