      Help with slow speeds please

      Hi been with sky broad band "up to 8meg" for a while now was canny fast, where i live i can only get 1.5 max which is ok for what i use the internet for, but for the last 5 months ive been geting speeds of 0.44 mb/s according to speedtest, my ping is alright, but im still getin download speeds around 40kbps, finally got fed up for paying for what im not getin.

      Hi The connect package is Traffic managed from 5pm till Midnight all weekends and Holidays. The problem not enough Band Width. There are thousands of post on the connect issue here`s a couple of threads to look through (Unofficial) FAQ - Sky Connect Users and Sky Connect Broadband - Are you being slowed down?

      sky connect is the problem and thereis no way of improving other than moving to another isp provider like plusnet or idnet which i am on.

      as suggested read the posted threads and move away from connect asap if you want that 1.5meg back.
