      Am I being limited?

      Sky Connect user here.

      I use a NSA310 to do all of my downloads and therefore all downloading speeds I mention are from this device as this downloads the fastest on my connection.

      I currently run a VPS based in Manchester and therefore all of my downloads come from there.

      From 1AM until about 8AM i get max 800 Kilobytes a second download speed.
      From 8AM until about 5PM i get max 400 Kilobytes a second download speed.
      From 5PM until about 1AM i get max 10 Kilobytes a second download speed.

      I have changed form Sky's router to a TP-Link TD-W8970.

      Below is the connection report from the new router. Connecting to the master socket makes no difference. When i used the sky router, i never got higher than 6000 Downstream.

      Line Status:Connected
      DSL Modulation Type:ADSL_G.dmt
      Annex Type:Annex A/L

      Max Rate (Kbps) 1172 8128
      SNR Margin (dB) 25 12.5
      Line Attenuation (dB) 10 23.6
      Errors (Pkts) 0 0

      I think the Broadband ISP shown in your Profile says it all.
