Slow Broadband

Last Friday I talked about a new breed of superfast broadband heading our way,however it would seem that in the current day many users still aren’t achieving anywhere near the maximum speeds promised by their ISPs.

Readers Questions

This week I’ll again spend a bit of time answering a selection of readers’ questions in the hope that I can resolve some of your most common problems.
