      Sky broadband speed has suddenly dropped?

      I've just logged into my router today and my speed has dramatically dropped does anyone know why?
      Here's what my router says:

      Modem
      ADSL Firmware Version 7.03.01.66
      Modem Status Connected
      DownStream Connection Speed 3776 kbps
      UpStream Connection Speed 896 kbps
      VPI 0
      VCI 38

      I can't think what is causing it, usually my speed fluctuates between 8500 and 10300kbps. I know that my exchange is being changed to ADSL2 this month so maybe they are messing with the lines, I'm not sure.

      Any help is greatly appreciated!

      EDIT: Here are the rest of my stats:

      Port Status TxPkts RxPkts Collisions Tx B/s Rx B/s Up Time
      WAN PPPoA 11026 18624 0 2435 75336 00:05:43

      Try your test socket again and post the results. You will not see any difference in the speed, but other figures will change.

      You are quite heavily capped, which Sky could fix, but it would be better to find out why you are capped first.

      Re: Sky broadband speed has suddenly dropped?

      I tried the test socket last night and nothing changed so I thought I'd let it do it's thing over night, I checked it this morning and still it was stuck at 3776kbps. I've just replaced my ADSL filter and the cable that connects from that to my router and its shot back up to 9200kbps! Thanks for the suggestions
