I had problems with my broadband speeds in the past and found that the telephone cabling within the house was a bit old, in a weird place, and just in general need of replacement. I have since replaced the cabling and the master socket, but I am still not getting the maximum speeds that my line can support.
I should be able to get up to 17mb however I am only geting 7mb just now.
My question is, does an extension cable, running from the master socket to my router, really have that much of an effect on my broadband speed that it would cause this difference in speed?
I have contacted my provider who claimed that having the extension cable was causing this, but unfortunately I do not know enough about it to tell whether they are fobbing me off or not.
Any advice, info, or links would be appreciated.
