How to troubleshoot FirstMile broadband performance problems

FirstMile Internet Speedchecker - Slow broadband speed

Before you begin troubleshooting the speed of your FirstMile internet connection, we recommend that you run a FirstMile Broadband Speedtest to benchmark your current connection speed.

Also confirm the guaranteed minimum download speed you have subscribed to from FirstMile.

You can get this information by checking a FirstMile broadband bill, your FirstMile contract or by contacting FirstMile.

Potential causes of FirstMile’s slow broadband performance

Is it your FirstMile broadband that is running slow or is it your device (PC/laptop/phone)?

You may need to check how many applications are running on your device.

The performance issue could be due to the over-utilisation of your system resources i.e RAM/CPU and not a problem with FirstMile’s internet connection.

If you’re on a PC then you may use the task manager to see your Processor and RAM utilization.

On any other device, you should try restarting the device which hopefully will shut down all applications that may have been hogging system resources.

Run the FirstMile Speed test on your personal computer and your phone to see how the results differ between the two devices.

This should hopefully provide you with more information to help determine if the problem is with your PC/Smartphone or the FirstMile broadband connection.

Is the wireless network the cause of the performance issue?

The cause of the performance problem could be your Wifi network and not the FirstMile broadband internet connection.

You can rule out the wireless network by connecting your PC directly into the FirstMile broadband router with an ethernet cable and run the FirstMile Speed checker again.

If the speed test result is better when you’re connected using a network cable, this suggests that the problem could be with the Wi-Fi network.

Possible things to investigate:

  • Are the Wireless channels that you’re using for your Wifi network network (SSID) overlapping with your neighbours?
  • Is your Wifi signal from the wireless router obstructed?
  • Does your speed improve when you’re stood directly infront of the FirstMile broadband router?

Who’s connected to my wireless network?

Have you checked that your Wi-Fi network password has not been compromised? Do you have an un-secured Wifi network? How strong is your Wifi network password? It could be time to update it.

Others could be using your Wi-Fi network and eating up all your FirstMile speed by downloading, uploading or even streaming music or video over your FirstMile broadband connection! Worse than that, they may be conducting illegal activities using your FirstMile internet connection.

There are 2 apps to use to scan your Wi-Fi network to see who is connected:

Both apps scan your wireless network and show you a list of the connected devices.

Do I need a Wifi network booster for my FirstMile broadband?

If you discover that you have wireless coverage gaps at your property, a wireless network extender also known as a Wifi Booster may be the best fix to increase your Wifi signal to cover any coverage gaps.

The wireless booster simply picks up the existing wireless signal just as it is starting to become weaker and re-transmits the Wi-Fi network signal to extend it’s coverage.

Position the wireless booster/extender where your Wifi network signal from your FirstMile broadband router is becoming weaker.

Place it near where your Wi-Fi network signal drops down to less than two signal bars. Walk around your home with a smartphone to try and establih where this is.

When was the last time you upgraded the FirstMile broadband router?

The FirstMile and broadband infrastructure, in general, are frequently updated to provide new features and improve performance as technology evolves.  Always ensure that your FirstMile broadband router is running the latest software.

The majority of FirstMile internet routers allow you to carry out the software upgrade by simply logging into the FirstMile broadband router and simply clicking on a button to start the update.

If you cannot do this, contact FirstMile and they will be able to perform the upgrade for you or talk you through the process.

In addition to upgrading the software, if you have had hardware for a long time, it’s probably worth speaking to FirstMile to ask for a router upgrade.

Is the issue outside your property (at the exchange)?

This is probably the most common reason for FirstMile broadband performance issues in your area and it’s more common for internet broadband connections that are delivered through copper phone lines.

If you’re not sure if this is relevant in your case, you should contact FirstMile who should be able to conduct the appropriate line tests to see if there is a issue on the FirstMile internet line.

Is the issue due to FirstMile broadband congestion?

If you’re finding that the FirstMile broadband connection speed in your area is slows down during certain times e.g weekends and during the evening, then it may be due to congestion during peak hours.

You should speak to FirstMile to check your guaranteed speed.

Re-testing your FirstMile internet connection

After the issue has been resolved either by yourself or FirstMile, retest your internet connection using  at least 2 separate Speedtests to ensure the fault is fixed:
