Speed is abysmal despite dull signal

I just switched to iD mobile, back on Vodafone I generally got around 20 megabits down, sometimes higher, sometimes lower.

iD is getting almost unusable speeds, well below 1 megabits. 

As you can see, I supposedly have full signal. Web browsing works OK but anything else is unusable.

Any ideas?

Hello @yotoprules,

Have you checked if there are any network issues or problems in your area?

You can do this using the Three Network Status Checker - iD use the Three UK network.

Anyway, good luck.  

No problems in my area apparently.
Sometimes I get 20 then it drops to like 1-2 megabits…
I’m switching back to my previous provider (Vodafone) which has a much more consistent connection.
