      Any ideas why this happens?

      I'm on Sky Connect and I get good speeds, no throttling at all, 24/7, for approximately 2 weeks, then I get unbrowsable speeds for a week or so. 2 weeks of unthrottled Net connection, then a week or so of unbrowsable speeds at peak times from 6:30 to 11:30

      Any ideas?


      Edit: From 5:30 to 11:30 I meant

      Whats your usage like over the last 2 weeks, have you been taking advantage of the uncapped etc?

      If so, iirc if you do on average 1.x amount of gb per day, then they will throttle you as it looks like you will go over the monthly limit if you get what I mean.

      Then that's why. Connect is probably the worst Broadband product in the UK and if you'd come here first no one would've have advised you to use it
