      Exclamation Download speed 25% of what it was?!?

      Hi,

      I've been a sky broadband user for some time (about 3 years) and have usually enjoyed a download speed of around 8000 kbps but over the last couple of days this has reduced dramatically!!

      A couple of days ago it was down at around 100 kbps (down) with every speedtest, even whilst the upload speed was around 750 kbps. Today the router stats are showing 3094 down & 884 up, which at least makes the internet useable but I don't understand why the sudden change over the past few days?!?

      Speedtest result from 5 minutes ago:



      Router stats taken just now:

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 3094 kbps 884 kbps
      Line Attenuation 36.5 db 21.4 db
      Noise Margin 8.7 db 8.0 db

      I'm pretty close to the exchange and in the past even thought I should be getting more than the 8000 kbps but now I would kill for just that!!

      Any help would be much appreciated :-)

      It looks like the condition of your line has deteriorate. Have you added anything new to the phone circuit? Phones, Sky boxes etc?

      Post your stats from the Test socket, if you have one and that may give an idea of where the problem lies.
