      0.5mbps connection speed

      ok here,s the story i,ve been with sky broadband now for 3 weeks.When i enquired they said i would have a connection speed of 5mbps although i was getting only 2mb when activated and i live only 1 mile from local exchange,i kept phoning customer services and explained my speed and what not and they put me on to tier2 who phoned me back a few days later and said the maximum speed i would get is 2mb.My router downstream said 3250 with 448 up.After reading about the ADSL nation NTE 2005 master faceplate on these forums i thought give it a try so i purchased along with some decent rj11 cable,on installation my downstream speed jumped from 3250 to 5550 which is about the right speed i should be getting.It didn,t make much difference at first i was still downloading at a low speed then all of a sudden a few days ago iwas downloading at 520kbs which was rougly giving me a 4.5mb connection i was happy with this for the meantime.But today my speed hit the lowest ever downloading at 110kbs a 0.5 connection speed which is ridiculous.i changed over from ntl 10mbps and i,m pulling my hair out with these poor speeds anyone else had these sort of problems
