When I use my mouse in the office it stutters, but it doesn't stutter at home.

Problem is, I could use 2.4ghz but 95% of the reason why I have this mouse is for its bluetooth function. I tested it with a mouse polling rate checker at home and it comes down to 80-90 hertz. That's ok. But at the office I think it does 50 at best? So for starters it's indeed lower. And i've heard about interference issues, but what's more is that the actual 'polling' of what i see on-screen is wayyyyyy lower than the reported 50.

What is weird is the cursor stutters around very very very very seriously despite that its control is actually pretty good. I can click everything fine and control it fine surprisingly, but the stuttering is severe. Imagine like the mouse is still there and all but I'm getting snapshots of it at 8 hz, not 50.

i would be more inclined to look at PC in office than the one at home... unless you use same computer in both places.
I don't think its the mouse and more the signal not reaching the dongle on PC (I assume it uses a dongle).
