      Internet Suddenly Syncing Slower?

      Hey all so a few months ago sky moved me onto their network,where I was able to get about 4.6MB to 5.6MB on average. This was past the 10 day training period. But for some reason the router will now only sync at 3.2MB to 4.1MB maximum. I don't know why it's just started doing this, nothing in the house has changed i.e. new phone, and the router is still connected in the roof directly to the incoming phone line. I have not contacted sky as of yet, but from what I can see in the logs the router would hold a 5MB connection for days, so I can't see why the exchange would re-sync me.

      Statistics Here- please not I had just restarted the router to see what it would sync at

      Cheers to anyone who can help and have a good new year

      James

      People are seeing this quite a lot when moved onto the Sky SVBN.

      As Paul says, many are experiencing a degradation of their service when moved to Sky's 'high-speed' network. I doubt if there is much you can do about it except complain bitterly to Sky. They are said to be using top notch equipment so it may just be teething troubles they have to sort out.

      Ah that sucks. I would move ISP's due to the service I have been getting from sky lately. But I know what will happen, sky was awesome in the beginning then it got popular and went down hill. Same would happen if I moved to o2

      Not necessarily, you would have to go back to BT with your line rental and that may cure the problem. Most seem to be getting better speeds with O2.
