      Download Speed Issue

      Hi there,

      hoping someone can help. my download speed has completely slowed up in last month. have spoken to sky a bunch of times and they dont seem to have an answer. the system says im being delivered 5megs ish but im actually getting around 0.5-1.5. have tried searching the forum but all the pages are taking so long to load ive had to start a new thread

      im using a dlink router although sky sent me a new sagem router today which has also made no difference. have tried changing micro filters as well. all very frustrating as even though its the basic package it used to be fine for my needs.

      these are my details

      Firmware Version SKY_1.11
      ADSL Port
      MAC Address F0:7D:68:11:13:8D
      IP Address
      Network Type PPPoA

      Gateway IP Address
      Domain Name Server
      LAN Port
      MAC Address F0:7D:68:11:13:8B
      IP Address
      DHCP On
      IP Subnet Mask
      ADSL Firmware Version A2pD030i.d22k
      Modem Status ADSL Link Up
      DownStream Connection Speed 5183
      UpStream Connection Speed 796

      Re: Download Speed Issue

      Your problem sounds eerily familiar.

      Could you confirm what Exchange you are on please?

      SamKnows - Telephone Exchange Search

      There are a number of exchanges that are experiencing problems in different areas of the country. some have been fixed, but others are still being sorted.

      Also can you confirm which BB package you have? From your stats I would guess it is either Sky BB Lite or sky BB Unlimited. If you are unsure, try to check your account on the website.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB
