Back to dial up days Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Hi All
Have just had BT Infinity fibre optic 76-80Mbs installed, I'm running Win7 64bit with all updates, mobo is about 7 years old (Asus M2N-SLi) but...........................speed on internet is virtually like the old dial up days, my NIC is 10/100/1000, so what could be throttling my internet, have tried Chrome (my default is Firefox), I'm committed to this contract for a further 18 months, have been in touch with BT, who inform me that I have to wait until a settling in period as elapsed!!!!!!, it's just some wire for heavens sake, thank goodness my radio/tv/bluray player/mobile phone doesn't have to settle in. Is there anything I can do until this settling period is over, your thoughts most appreciated.

Hi ... It can take some time before things start to settle down ... How ever if things do not improve and as you are under Contract your ISP has to up hold their end of the Contract also failure to do so means you have the right to take action ..

Cheers maxie, but what is this settling down, surely it should be instant in this day & age.

I do agree you would think it should be instant .. I believe it takes a few Days with your ISP ... I used to be with them also had a very bad experience and switched providers ...

Once again, thanks. Installed on 29th December, will give it 14 days, I think that's fair, then if no improvement will put a bit of stick about.
