Sony 4K Tv Data connection problem


Standard Member
Hi, I was after a little advice regarding an ongoing case with Sony...
I have a Sony KD-49x8505B that has never been able to connect to a network higher than 16mbps,
I've gone through months of testing with Sony, the Tv was exchanged after 1 week at Currys ( no difference ) an engineer has also been out to swap the main board.
It makes no difference if it's tested wired or wireless on my network, Virgin ISP ( incoming 200mbps ) or a friends Sky and BT network wired or wireless, all have been tried connecting it directly into a modem bypassing any router port problems.
Sony are trying to insist it's the ISP who are blocking the Sony Ports restricting it to 16mbps.
I'm at the stage now where I believe this TV is not fit for purpose, it has a 10/100 ethernet port that I think can't handle the data speeds therfore the TV will not stream 4K on any of the UK's major ISP networks wired or wireless. All other devices in the house work perfectly.
Any advice at this stage would be very much appreciated....
