How to troubleshoot Goscomb Technologies broadband internet performance

Goscomb Technologies Internet speedtest - Slow broadband speedBefore starting to troubleshoot the speed of your Goscomb Technologies broadband connection, you need to run the Goscomb Technologies Internet Broadband speedtest and also confirm the exact Upload and Download speed you have subscribed to.

You can get this information by checking a Goscomb Technologies bill or contact Goscomb Technologies to confirm this information.

Likely causes of Goscomb Technologies slow internet performance

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

You need to check how many applications are concurrently running on your device that could be using your system resources (mainly RAM memory and CPU) and/or your Goscomb Technologies internet bandwidth.

If you’re on a laptop then you can use the task manager to check your processor and memory usage.

On any other device you should try rebooting the device which should hopefully kill all apps that may be running in the background.

Re-run the Goscomb Technologies speed test on your personal computer and your phone to see how the speedtest results compare between the two devices.

This should hopefully give you some information to work with in terms of if the issue lies with your device or the Goscomb Technologies internet connection.

Is your Wifi network connection the problem?

The cause of the issue could be your Wi-Fi network connection and not the Goscomb Technologies broadband internet connection.

You could rule out the Wifi network being the cause of the issue by connecting your PC directly into the Goscomb Technologies broadband router using an ethernet cable and run the Goscomb Technologies speed test again.

If speed improves when you’re connected using a network cable then this proves that the issue could be with the Wifi connection setup.

Possible things to check are:

  • Are the Wireless channels you are using for your wireless network (SSID) overlapping with the neighbors?
  • Could the Wifi network signal from the router be obstructed?
  • Does the performance improve when your are standing directly infront of the Goscomb Technologies broadband or wireless router?

Who is connected to my Wi-Fi network?

Have you checked that your wireless network password has not been compromised? Do you have an un-secured Guest Wifi network?

Neighbors could be on your Wi-Fii network and eating up all the Goscomb Technologies bandwidth downloading/uploading or even streaming netflix! Worse than that, they could be carrying out illegal activities which will all point to your connection.

There are 2 apps that you can use to scan your Wi-Fi network to see who’s connected:

Both apps will scan your wireless network and display a list of the connected devices.

Do I need a wireless network Booster for my Goscomb Technologies broadband?

If you find that you have Wi-Fi black holes in your house, then a Wifi extender also know as a wireless Booster is the solution to boost your signal. They are readily available online from around £15.

The wireless network booster simply picks up the existing Wifi signal just as it is becoming weak and then re-transmits the Wi-Fi network signal at a more stronger rate to extend it’s reach.

Place the Wi-Fi network booster/extender where your wireless network signal from the Goscomb Technologies broadband router is becoming weak.  Approxiametly where your Wi-Fi network signal drops down to 2 bars. Use your mobile phone to determine where this is.

When was the last time you upgraded your Goscomb Technologies broadband router?

The Goscomb Technologies and openreach infrastructure is constantly being updates to support new features (some customer facing and others internal).  Always ensure that the Goscomb Technologies broadband router has the most up to date software.

Most Goscomb Technologies broadband routers allow you to perform the software upgrade by logging on the Goscomb Technologies broadband router and simply clicking a button to perform the update.

If you can’t do this, contact Goscomb Technologies and they will be able to either do this for you or talk you through how to do it depending on the Goscomb Technologies router model you have.

As well as upgrading the software, if you have had the same router for a long period, it is worth speaking to Goscomb Technologies to ask for a router upgrade.

Is the problem external (at the exchange)?

This is probably the most common reason for Goscomb Technologies broadband performance issue in your area and is more common for broadband connections that are delivered using phone lines.

If you’re not sure if this is applicable to you, you should contact Goscomb Technologies who should be able to carry out the relevant line tests to check if there is a fault on the Goscomb Technologies broadband line.

Is it due to Goscomb Technologies Broadband congestion?

If you’re finding that the Goscomb Technologies internet connection speed in your area is slow during certain times e.g over weekends and evenings, it may be because of congestion during peak times.

You should contact your Goscomb Technologies to understand if the service you subscribed to has a minimum speed or is  a contended ‘first come first serve’ service with no minimum speed guaranteed.
