      I also got that impression, the guy even said at the next meeting of his department the issue would be raised cause theyre sick of the calls at the moment down to the issue, very nice guy tho! Am still waiting on my MAC tho...

      Steve12345 (sorry am not looking for your actual number) thanks for the list, but when i looked at it theres alot of ISP's i wouldnt touch!

      Would be good if Sky did sort it out, However Im due to be put on my new provider sometime today (ADSL24). One month rolling contract I hope they are ok and don't throttle my connection. Should aso be on ADSL2+ crossed fingers.

      Believe me, I understand what a peak period is, but christ, down to less than 512????

      That must be some throttling or contention.

      Gazz380 davedarave01uk Pleased Mac Code sorted
      I hope you both get great speeds from your new ISPs and they provide a better service

      Hi 186 not many compared to 1108 I know someone will say that other connect Customers and members are leaving more than 1 post but thats the idea the more information the better especially connect Customers who put Bt speed performance tests in posts for reference. So CST have information regarding each individual connect Customer just in case there is other issues with their connections
