      issues with my broadband speed lately

      hi recently i have had some wired problems with my broadband

      most of the time my laticy for games (PC and xbox) are quite high there in the 300 - 700ms range (i checked to see if anyone on my network was downloading but no one downloads at the times i play games online

      some other days i can download at 6 mb and others i dont get 10kb a sec (all at the same time's of the day

      form what i can gather with information form friends my speed should be at least 12 mb but the most im getting is 6.7 mb
      i think im about 3.5 km form my exchange (dunfermline)
      but my firend is 4km and hes getting 12 on a good day and on a bad day hes getting 10
      we are both on sky Ultmate
      we are both useing the netgear v2 router and a faceplate filter
      i have attached my router stats atm i had just rebooted it

      is there anyway for me to inprove on my speed ??
      iv been on the phone to sky bb support and thay told me there putting 20 down my line
      when i tryed the test socket it gose about 5.3 mb

      You won't get 12Mbps with that attenuation - 8-9Mbps at best

      I'd say your speeds are spot on for your attenuation. That's according to kitz anyway.

      I would like to see his stats, he seems to be defying the Laws of Physics.

      when i tryed the test socket it gose about 5.3 mb
      If it goes down in the Test socket, then something is wrong. Do you have extensions? If so are they without dial tone when the faceplate is removed from the Master socket?

      With regards your latency, have you asked Sky to put you on a Gamer Profile?
