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

      These results are a joke

      • Broadband package: Sky Connect
      • Normal Speed: 4.5mb (what you would normally expect)
      • Current throttled speed: 1032 Kbps / 361 Kbps
      • Average usage per day: hardly any, at work 9 - 6
      • What does this throttling affect? Browsing

      I have been emailing back and forth to sky about my own problem, and the general problem. It has been 'escalated'.
