Broadband and pc speed

Postby Lloydy » Wed Sep 15, 2010 6:15 pm

First, Broadband. With BT at the minute, have been for ages but it now starting to really do my head in. Done several speed checks and getting about 5Mbps on average, which i'm sure is less than we should be getting. But its now becoming very temperamental and every now and then just plain refuses to work. What do others use and how reliable is it?

Second, my laptop needs speeding up. Its probably nearly 4 years old, and the hard drives definitely need a good clear out, old music and pics etc, but i've known i needed to do that for ages. But i did one of those free pc speed checks, uniblue speedupmypc2010, and its said i had over 3000 speed issues found. what do you fine people use to clean out the crap and resolve these issues? for free preferrably ;-)

I have Virgin Media, TV, phone and 10MB broadband for £27ish a month, always really fast and never had any problems with it, I use my Xbox 360 on the broadband to and never get any lagging, best provider I have been with.
