      Slower Speeds For The Past Month

      For the past month I have been experiencing noticeably slower speeds from Sky. Speed Tests used to show my speeds as 3mbps (which is supposed to be the highest for my area) but now it's down to 1mbps or less.

      As far as I'm aware nothing has changed on my end.

      Router stats are:

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 5024 kbps 800 kbps
      Line Attenuation 27 db 15 db
      Noise Margin 10 db 14 db

      Does anyone know why my speeds are now sower?

      First off run a speed test on this site and post back results. If your still getting the 1mb from this site ensure your connecting through wired. If your still getting 1mb then try the router in the test socket and see if you get a higher rate from there and post back results.

      Irrespective of the download speed you get, you should have a far better sync speed. At least 3 times the speed you have. Plug into the Test socket using only the filter and ADSL cable supplied by Sky and post your stats.

      There is a chance that you are on G.DMT, ADSL1, but even on that you should have a far higher sync speed.
