Advice needed about speed disparity

Hello, Newbie here,


Can anyone advise on the following: I have a MacBook 12" with all systems up to date.

I have BT Fibre Optic to the premises and generally get between 73 and 76 Mbps.

When I connect to Freeddome it drops to  11  Mbps  this happens immediately now time gap so one minute full speed changeover  and I am a snail!  


Any help would be gratefully received. Mike T

    Hi MikeTa,


    May I know which location have you selected in Freedome?


    Please also have a look at this article here.

    Hello Laksh,


    I am using UK London which is the nearest. I have read the article relating to encryption and distance.

    I would imagine London is a very popular server. What server would you suggest?

    Thank you for your response.

    Hi Mike T,


    Could you please try to connect to a different location, for example, Ireland and check the speed?

    Are you getting slow speed with a different location as well? Or is it just with the London location?
