      Slow speed in the evening and high Ping



      Hi,
      I am having some problems with my internet connection,
      In the evening my connection is unusable very slow on opening web pages,
      Gaming on Xbox live is horrendous ,
      I'm also experiencing high Ping too,
      I am connected to a filtered faceplate master socket,
      Was just wondering if somebody could please check my stats.
      Thanks in advance
      Liam.

      No need, leave Connect ASAP as it's possibly the worst service in the UK

      Read this to get an idea...

      I have recently taken sky talk line rental,
      Will this affect me from leaving sky broadband for another ISP
      I was thinking of maybe PlusNet ?

      If you are on Connect, you are most likely on an exchange which has not been enabled by Sky, so you should be able to get another ISP. You will still have a BT compatible line, but it depends on whether the ISP you choose accepts it as such. The only way to find out for sure is to phone up and ask the ISP you are considering.
