      Unhappy Worlds Slowest Connection? Speed problems

      I have been with sky with just about a year now and have never really had any fast internet in all the time i have been with them. Now the speed has dropped to what i can presume is the lowest download speed that many of you will have ever seen



      Thats correct 0.08 Mb/s.

      Also here are my router stats:

      i have never really had super fast internet with any ISP, never anything over 0.30 Mb/s but NEVER anything as slow as this!
      If anyone knows anything that could help speed this up at all i would love to hear your suggestions.

      Regards,
      Kyle

      Hi can I just check your Sky Broadband package. The reason it looks like you are on Sky Connect which is a Bt re-badged Product and is Traffic Managed from 4pm till 11pm. Not Sky Broadband Unlimited.

      Hey

      I wasent to sure on my package and have been unable to check, if it was Sky connect like you said, would that explain why the speed is ALWAYS so slow?

      Hi In your my Sky login and go to Broadband it should tell you there. you could have a look at Sky Connect Broadband - Are you being slowed down? and (Unofficial) FAQ - Sky Connect Users Should give you some Idea of what has been happening. The 448kbps Upstream is the give away. If you do a Bt Updated Speed Tester that will confirm the connect package.
