      Tried any other speed tests?

      Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test

      DSL ZoneUK - Speed test
      Date of Speed Test: 2007-04-08 21:48:19
      Download Speed: 134 kbps (16.8 KB/sec transfer rate)
      Upload Speed: 380 kbps (47.5 KB/sec transfer rate)
      Namesco BroadbandMax ADSL Broadband Bandwidth speedtest | Test your ADSL Broadband connection speed



      How do you connect your PC to the router? Ethernet or wireless?


      When you run the speed tests, do you have anything else downloading at the same time - e.g. any P2P stuff like BitTorrent - or anything?


      Whatever the cause of the slow download speeds, there are certainly noise problems that you can at least sort out to get a higher sync speed....




      The dsl zone one didnt work lol geuss im too bad

      Have you got this round the wrong way, or were you really happy with 400 kbps down? You have not said if you tried the quiet test, this is really worth doing as it is possible that your line has been damaged in some way. Another forum member increased their d/l dramatically after BT discovered a fault with their line.

      I think you should understand that speedtests can vary from minute to minute. The fact that you got an apparently worse response using the test socket proves nothing. The fact that your sync rose from the 600s to nearly 2000, does. Use the advice you have been given about improving your internal wiring and get BT to look at your external line if necessary and things will improve.

      1) Report this to BT, As if it is a problem for people in your area, Then BT are required (Dont count on me - with this one) to do something.

      But lets face it, With a 65db attenuation, I hope you werent expecting 16Mb as thats almost impossible.
      There are alot of people using the BT network to get broadband and tbh, There is nothing you lot who live so far away from the exchange can do, Unless you move house, or keep on nagging BT/Ofcom.

      The problem is not really with Sky, it is with the technology. With BT you would be on an ordinary ADSL connection, which would have a profile set of 512kbps or up to 1500 kbps. BT would adjust this profile to give you the best consistent download speed. The technology used by Sky (apart from Connect) is completely different. It is supposed to adjust itself automatically to give the best performance, unfortunately this does not seem to work too well on very long or noisy lines. I am sure some of the forum experts could explain this better than I can.

      Given the condition of your line, I think you would have been better off staying with ordinary ADSL. With my last ISP, some users were upgraded to Max and when they found their broadband became unusable, they were moved back, unfortunately this is not an option with Sky.

      I may be wrong, but I think it is really naughty for Sky to sell a service which may not work anywhere near as well as it should. A basic line check would confirm this and the customer could be warned that they may receive a very poor service. But then again, how many ISPs would 'put off' potential customers in this way?
