      Re: Sky Connect Broadband - Are you being slowed down?

      2:50pm today:

      Your DSL connection rate: 7008 kbps(DOWN-STREAM), 448 kbps(UP-STREAM)
      IP profile for your line is - 6000 kbps
      Actual IP throughput achieved during the test was - 1355 kbps

      Had awful pings and packet loss all last night too. Luckily I already got my MAC and signed up to another provider, so i'll be free in ~5 days!

      Not sure why i'm being throttled at this off peak time, but it doesn't surprise me anymore.

      Oh yes you always see a slowdown on School holidays, also I can see it getting worse as more people become unemployed as more and more people use the internet for job searching.

      sparkey 21:26 17/04/09
      Down stream 8128kbps Up stream 448kbps
      IP Profile for the line is 7150kbps
      Actual IP Profile Throughput achieved during the test was 495kbps
