      Sky Unlimited Download Problem.

      basically I have been a happy customer with sky unlimited for over a year and havnt had any problems until last month.

      My downloads on my Laptop have decreased significantly from around 1.5m/s to 75 kbps when downloading.



      The above is my most recent speed test. (Witb the ps3 off)

      However I'm not sure if its just an issue with my laptop because when connected to my ps3 (with the laptop not in use of course) I achieve 13m-20m speeds constantly , downloading at 1-2m/s.



      I use wireless and the distance between the two is almost the same , with the ps3 being ever so slightly further back.

      Are both on wireless? The issue isn't router or connection based so that leaves the laptop.

      It looks like you are connecting by wireless, plug the laptop in by cable and try a speedtest at Sky User - Broadband Speed Tester

      If your speed is still low, you should get around 13-13.5mbps, try starting in Safe Mode with Networking and do the test again.
