      Sky BB conect very very slow download speeds.!!!

      Hi can any 1 help.
      when i first got my sky BB conect the speed was super fast i was downloading on average about 500kbs now im lucky if i keep between 40kbs and 80kbs.

      now i find a drop from 800kbs to 80kbs to be totaly unacceptable
      i heard that there was a problem a the exchange, i spoke to them to day and they said that was all sorted.

      i get a good result from Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test between 4mb and 6mb,
      so is there any reason for such a drop in my download speeds.

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 8128 kbps 448 kbps
      Line Attenuation 34.0 db 19.0 db
      Noise Margin 11.3 db 24.0 db


      thanks

      Could it be that the sites you are downloading from are slow, or have you exceeded a download limit? Try a reliable site like the bbc.

      What are you experiencing slow downloads on? You are on BT Connect, which is throttled for P2P, Torrents and other things they consider 'bandwidth guzzlers'. I am not sure if this is all the time or just at peak periods. Try a test from Sky User Tester

      Note - When downloading always select the Custom install or you will end up with stuff you don't want.
