      you had an auto regrade from the first time you called Sky - you've been capped

      call Sky and ask them to remove it

      8 megabits = 8000 kilobits

      Assuming that you were downloading at a rate of 824 kilobytes per second, this equates to about .8 megabytes per second which is a speed of 6.5 megabits per second or 6750 kilobits per second. Still pretty high for your connection, which is why I have said something has changed with your line or connection type. Do you have any older records of your stats you can check back on?

      I dont have any older stats but those where when i first joined sky and was getting them for around 2/3 month.

      Im going to ring them next weekend and ask them to do a resync hopefully that will bring my speed back up.
