This is more like 3g speeds yet I have cleared my phone of temporary files restarted done a manual roam as well as automatic. Giffgaff says it listens to customers well sort your speeds out or you will lose another fed up with it now

Hmm, Devon is sort of remote.

There used to be an app on Google play called speedboost by an author called MC STEALTH (although I haven't been able to find it lately) it connected to you to a closer mast.

Are you sure there's a nothing going on on in the background that could warrant a heavy download? Maps, Facebook, YouTube streams?

Also, try a different speed test site. Not like that will fix anything.

I did notice when I was a data user the speeds were poor, and have seen plenty of people on here who are less than happy with the data service.

Only thing I can suggest is trying a different ISP, at least you can breath easy knowing your not tied to a 12 month contract.

From what I have read on one of Giffgaff updates last year they said in 2017 supposed to be improving bandwidth and data speeds and improving signal but he is the issue will be at end of 2017.
