Guide to tracking down broadband interference
Christmas is almost upon us and by now almost everyone will have their full complement of Christmas lights switched on and that may also mean people are mumbling into their festive jumper about how slow their broadband is. A common reason for this can be that your Christmas lights may be interfering with the ADSL/ADSL2+ broadband connection.
The video below should help you to identify if your Christmas lights or some other electrical device is the source of noise affecting your broadband speed.
We also have a Broadband Interference Guide that should feature as a must read for anyone who is finding that their broadband performance is worse now we are into the long dark winter nights.
The moral from this tale of Christmas is to keep your broadband modem away from your Christmas lights and don't simply assume that video buffering or intermittent broadband issues are a problem with the line or the Internet as a whole.
