I am a little confused, I have Sky Broadband Connect, and according to speedtests I have done my download speed is around 4 to 6 meg. All fine and dandy.
However although downloading files and the like are quick, if I try to download a movie clip or music from the internet the download drops to something that resembles slow dial-up. This happens both when hard wired (ethernet) and wireless. Am I doing something wrong
Any help would be grateful...

Re: Download Speeds
If by "a movie clip or music from the internet" you mean P2P or torrents then the slow speed you are seeing is down to traffic shaping on Connect. There is no real way round this other than using a client that supports traffic encryption which will improve things a little. See the P2P forum for more info.
