      Broadband shockingly slow this evening

      Evening all,

      I live in Prestwich, Manchester and my Sky broadband seems ridiculously slow tonight. My router stats seem fine, same as usual, and I've rebooted it to be on the safe side, but browsing is terribly slow tonight, and the various speedtests I've done suggest that I'm getting between 2-3Mb down tops, as opposed to the 10-11Mb that I usually get!

      Does anybody know of any major network problems that I am unaware of? Router stats are below in case anybody needs to see em!

      tbh we were not sure that this would affect anyone, but on o2 and Sky it would appear that it is.

      Your low noise margin may be causing a slow down. If you rebooted and it has dropped to 4 dbs after 16 mins, you may be having Xmas light problems.
