      your on the connect package... unfortunately it has a quite an infamous traffic shaping policy, there is a whole thread dedicated to it (Unofficial) FAQ - Sky Connect Users

      unless your getting these speeds outside speak hours(traffic management is supposed to kick in at 5pm and finish at midnight) then this is just standard for the package your only hope is to check your local exchange for an ISP that offers LLU, if you can find one then get your MAC code!

      Hi speedtest. net does not give you a true reading you need to use the Bt performance tester as you are on the connect package follow these instrution Bt Updated Speed Tester a another good idea is to post your stats from your router How to get your router statistics do you have the problems from 5pm till Minight if so that is when the connect package is being traffic managed or to quite a few throttled
