      Your DSL connection rate:
      5664 kbps(DOWN-STREAM), 448 kbps(UP-STREAM)
      IP profile for your line is - 4500 kbps
      Actual IP throughput achieved during the test was - 1308 kbps

      Lovely stuff, finding it hard to do pretty much anything tonight other than browse forums. This is the worst service from a company ive ever come across, it is criminal they get away with it.

      We are also getting throttled,we are on the connect package,however my girlfriends son had it upped from 40 gig to unlimited (not the 10 deal) and had to pay extra,not sure how much he pays but i know it is more than 17,will ask him when he gets back off his holiday.

      Are you going to leave the IANTE? I know you get yours for free, so I suppose you can live with it.
      I used to get BT option 3 for free, but I could not live with that, but at least I got a straght answer when I asked why I was being throttled, so here I am

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

      I'm tempted, have to say, but as I only browse/download music I set it going when at work during the day but seeing as I work shifts I tend to get mornings free so I get what I need to get done, done...

      there isn't multiple options on Connect - it's up to 8Mbps/40GB or nothing...

      The only way you get unlimited is on Max and on that you pay less than on Connect (even after the rise).
