    From what you are saying it does sound a little unlikey to be the laptop but I think it still has to be done.

    The root cause of the problem might be the change but the fix might be at the laptop end... If that makes sense.
    Ah yes. Its desktop as well BTW. BUT I still think 99.9% that its the change. Nothing significant has changed on PC apart from broadband provider. Same ethernet, same POE plugs, just different router (BT hub one).

      How long have you had the hub switched on with BT?
      I'm perfect, in a very specific and limited way.

        What's POE, power over Ethernet? You mean you are using those power line adapter things? Either way, to confirm I would try it again over wired Ethernet straight into your router, ie. not using the power line adapters.

        Your speed test is 38Mb but pages are still slow to load, even with different browsers.

        Raw download speed might not be the issue. In downloading the page, your browser makes a large number of requests and downloads many small files, perhaps hundreds, from 1 or more web servers. Eg. downloading bbc.co.uk requires 268 requests and downloads 138 files, just for the front page. Your PC does a lot of work to to open and close 268 network connections. Also your PC must do work in rendering the pages, running embedded scripts and what have you, which briefly loads the CPU. Downloading bbc.co.uk takes 4.5 seconds on my i7 laptop, 8.6 seconds on a Raspberry pi 2, and 24.3 seconds on a Pi 1.

        Those tests are with wget and a single thread, all wired. Browsers do it quicker by raising parallel requests. Anyway what I am saying is the problem might be in your PC, tablet or whatever. My Internet speed is 17 Mb/s btw.

          These responses are like the BT "technical" assistance script.

          If you use powerline adapters do they need to be (re-)configured?

          Do you only see this on one machine via poweline? What about when you connect using WiFi on the laptop? What about when you use your smart-phone/tablet/etc on WiFi?

              That bit is confusing me too. POE <> Powerline.

              If it is over Powerline, what does PowerPacket tell you the speed at the PC is?

                Yes POE is something different altogether.

                    Sorry Powerline/ethernet over power.

                    DNS change makes a big difference btw.
