      Hmm. To be honest we don't really stream or download very often. Myself and my son, and wife to an extent, play alot of games, Which, besides bandwidth used by them, includes general updating, patching, etc. So I guess we could have used more than usual what with school break for summer.

      So I don't really know the answer.

      [Edit] By games I do mean multiplayer. And I usually have ventrillo ticking over even when I'm not using it.

      So I don't really know the answer.
      The answer is in post # 2. The Connect service is diabolical at peak times and it is very unlikely to improve.

      Hmm. Yes well I knew that, just didn't think it would be that bad.

      So If I where to change ISP the issues would be lesser? Could you reccomend any that might be more preferable?

      Thanks

      Hi as there is no LLU at your exchange a good idea is to look at some of the connect threads where ex connect customers have moved to also here`s a link Broadband from 4.49 - Compare Best Broadband Deals, Packages & UK Broadband Providers another good idea is find out neighbours ISPs and what they are like and most of all a provider that gives a good deal
