      Extremely slow connection evening time - 0.02mb/s speed test

      Just signed up to sky and getting extremely slow connection in the evenings. I understand that sky with throttle at peak times, like evenings. But why would they throttle to worse than dial up speeds? 0.02 is really, really bad.

      Heres a speed test taken an hour ago...



      Is there a problem, or is this normal for sky broadband?

      Unless you're connect, sky do not throttle at any time.

      Yes I think I am on the connect broadband. I think I am in a area where Sky has not upgraded to the 20mb/s, does that mean im on connect? My connection is the 8mb/s 40gb package. Im only on this as Sky's area checker said they are upgrading there lines to 20mb/s in my area within 3 months.

      Here is a screenshot of my statistics:

      Why does it say O2-UK on the tester? It should be Easynet or Sky broadband

      It says Sky broadband when I test from that server



      You are on Connect!!!

      We pay 17 per/month. The only reason we taken out this package is because of the upgraded lines within 3 months to the 20mb/s line. Am I going to get throttled like this until the 20mb/s line is available in my area?

      Its an iPhone app. The O2-UK is just my phone network, I am connected to Wifi on the phone using a speedtest app.
