      Speed Halved after connection dropped

      Our broadband connection seemingly disconnected by itself the other day and I reset the router to get it back. Now however the connection speed is half what it usually is.

      Now its not a great connection speed to begin with, only getting 220kb/s download speed at the best of times but its dropped to about 80-90kb/s now.

      I've tried a power cycle but it made no difference.
      Is this problem likely to resolve itself or is it something else that im going to have to get my dad to sort out with Sky/BT, its his account afterall.

      Current connection stats:



      Thanks

      Phone Sky and ask them to put you on G.DMT (ADSL1)
