      Yeah i know that, but Ive sometimes had my speed up to at least 5mb/s which isnt bad at all for me. even 2mb/s can work but this speed is just stupid
      i would be better off on mobile broadband

      Well if you did the search as IANTE suggested then you'll see what the problems are with Sky Connect and should explain your difficulties.

      The stats you have posted compared to your previous ones show that a fault has developed on your line. That does not really matter, as it is the package you are on which is the main problem. You were also told this in one of your previous posts. Go to another ISP, Plusnet is well recommended, that is the only way you will get a decent service.

      Re: Really Slow Internet?

      This is just getting really annoying...


      Does it cost any money to change ISP also how long will the whole process take?
      also I was told my location apparently isnt a fibre optic area...
      Thanks for your help
