      Your speed outside the throttling period is quite good at 6600kbps. You are suffering from the Connect throttling-virus, like everyone else on Connect. Until Sky stop throttling, which they are very unlikely to do, you will do no better. You are wasting your time phoning Sky about it, but as you are on SkyTalk, it will cost you nothing, so bombard them with complaints. It will help when you want to move without penalty.

      Get out as soon as you can.
