      Sky BB Very Slow - Should be 17mb only getting 4mb

      Hi,

      Only noticed this today but my BB is very slow. I have been with Sky for 18 months now and never had any problems (only a little downtime for the odd hour).

      But i was using iPlayer and noticed it was not as free as it normally was and kept waiting for it to buffer. So i did a speed test and got

      4141 kbps and 670 kbps

      I normally get 17500 kbps and between 450/550 kbps

      Any ideas what could be causing this? I don't download a great deal so not sure if Sky have brought in a cap like Virgin do.

      Thanks

      Re: Sky BB Very Slow - Should be 17mb only getting 4mb

      Just plugged in my sky router which i have not used since the start (June 07) and getting speeds of this now:

      Date 05/11/08 07:45:16
      Speed Down 13536.96 Kbps ( 13.2 Mbps )
      Speed Up 668.22 Kbps ( 0.7 Mbps )

      Also i always max out on newsgroups and that is back to normal at 1.68 MB/s

      So looks like my Linksys router is knackered.

      Thanks for your help
