      Are you on Connect? It looks like you may be, as there is really no peak time on LLU connections, so you should suffer no reductions.

      Post your stats, from the normal position and from the Test socket, link below. Also indicate exactly how long you have been connected.

      yep i am on connect.

      tried that test socket thing - no joy.
      as far as i know the connection time has no impact its usually around 7-8 GMT that the ping starts to shoot before then its perfectly fine, a few disconnects here and there but nothing out of the ordinary.

      there have been problems with the BT line around here recently with a water company cutting through it but we've been told that that is resolved now so really at a loose end!
