      Intermittent and now slow help me!!!!

      i have had sky's 8Mb package now for a year or so, for most of the year its been wonderful and i had no problems till 4 months ago that is. first it went intermittent on me for a good 3 months or so i spook to sky on a daily basis and i think to date i have been told that the line has been reconfigured and fixed 4 times, so that did appear to stop but then to be replaced with slow speed. i some times was getting more upload speed than down from the site i have always used to check my speed for years (speedtest.net).
      my line is ment to support 6.5Mb/sec and normally i was getting 6, now its all over the place sometimes down to 200kb/sec .
      i reset the router at least 4-6 times a day in the hope that it will help but it often does not .

      (other notes: when intermittent when the sky BB box was on i had noise on the phone line gone when off (that is now fixed and gone, my neighbour says he is getting slow speds with his provider which is also a BT line)

      you're on Connect, not Mid, and this is subject to traffic management which, at present, is reducing all lines (not just those who rape their connection) to an almost halt...
