giffgaff's internet is a lot slower now than it was when I first joined 6 years ago, it seems. I've noticed over the last year that its been at its worst so was wondering if any other long time gg users have been experiencing the same slow speeds as me in comparison to the earlier days of gg?
When mentioning this to a friend recently they suggested that maybe it's because a lot more people are using giffgaff now than before 🤔
Mine has increased to 20’s mbps from 3-4mbps about 4/5 years ago.
A number of things could be the reason and one could be congestion in your area as your friend alluded to. Which, if that’s the case, there isn’t much you can do really unless o2 increases capacity in your area.
But there are a few things you can try on your phone side. First check link below for any ongoing issues with network in your area
@persco Thanks for taking the time to reply but you needn't of gone to that much trouble 😉
I have already tried everything you suggested numerous times and recently thought about doing the sim swap. I do intend trying this now as you've suggested that it may help 😁
Perfect @tina66. If those sim are recent, crack on with sim swap to try.
Apologies, didn’t know you had tried all those troubleshooting tips.
By the way. What kinds of speeds are you getting these days?
@masterluke Based on the OP what have you got to add? Would be interesting to know your response to the OP.
What you said doesnt address op issue or even if you feel this should be in ‘contribute’ has no input to it. I addressed the issue and also tried help. Let’s hear yours.
