Really slow broadband

@sooi  Where abouts do you live?  Postcode would be useful.

S3, near Ladys Bridge.



I'm not necessarily complaining about Sky's service (except for the connection drops now and then).

I do get the speed that they provided, which is about 7Mbps max.

Also, as far as I can find 7Mbps is the fastest I can get where I live.


The main thing I'm complaining about is the fact that my neighbours (in the apt buildings next to mine) can get speeds up to 1Gbps which is about 20 times faster. 

I understand that the speed is going to fluctuate per building but that big of a difference seems a bit ridiculous to me.


I was just wondering if there was any way for me to get a better connection at all. So far neither my landlord, Sky or OpenReach have gotten me anywhere. 


The only feasible option I can think of is using mobile data. Which would definitely be faster but probably cost me fortunes.
