    Are you checking your internet speed with a computer connected directly to the modem by ethernet cable?

    Check that no one else at home is using the internet connection at the same time. If you are sharing the available download speed, you can see reduced speeds. For example, lf others at home are using 90 Mbps, then there will be just 30 Mbps leftover for you.

    Did you try to restart your routeur ? Remove the electricity plug for 10 seconds and put it back. when the lights are blue again, try again

    Hi Panhead

    Have you tried restarting the modem?

    You can also try a factory reset of your modem, thus resetting the modem to factory conditions, by pressing and holding in the small button on the back of the box with a paper clip for 10+ seconds. Then wait 3-4 minutes before trying. You will have to re-enter the codes shown on the modem initially.

    Did you download lots of data in the last days ? Fizz has a policy for the 120/20 plan in case that there are too much traffic and you download lots of data, they can temporarily decrease your download speed
