Bit of a strange one this - Past few days our internet has absolutely been shocking. I'm paying full wack for Fiber Max super mega addition. Trying to install anything at all and It's dragging it's way through at less than 500kbs.
Tried all the usual stuff, Router on and off, disconnect some devices, changing the wireless channel. Nothing.

Any ideas? No way for us to go wires either. Router is in the living room and we're in the office.

Probably some old dude nearby firing up his ancient TV: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/uk-wales-54239180

But genuinely not sure what you can try there, have you contacted your ISP? Is there no way you can do a wired test, even temporarily? That might help isolate if it's a WiFi problem
