What speed should I expect from my broadband?

The broadband speeds you receive can be affected by a number of things, meaning they can differ from the advertised speeds of the broadband tier you are on. This includes your home environment, the number of people using a connection, device limitations and use of a wireless connection. At peak times, high usage due to things like major sporting events can cause network congestion, temporarily slowing down the speeds you receive.
