Very slow mobile broadband speed


Hi there,


This is happening everyday, around 12:00, then again around 16:00 for a few hours or all evening. Speed regularly drops to below or just above 1mb for sustained periods of time, sometimes hours. This has been going on for months. More noticable now as I tried using NowTV, which just does not work when connected to Works fine is I create a hotspot from my vodafone mobile. 


Please don't tell me to check my router, or signal, or any other such suggestion. This is an issue with the Three network. Either the service is being throttled, or the network cannot cope with the number of subscribers signed up, either of which is unacceptable service. I've seen other people with the same complaint in rural areas (I'm in west cork. 


Are there any plans to rectify this?


Many thanks

You'll need to give the address so it can be checked out. Maybe sending that in a pm is best.
