      Unhappy Sky connect speed

      Hi
      benn on sky connect package now for a couple of months and i have benn very disaponted with it, i used to get about 1MB download speed when i first installed it, but now it's gone down to about 380Kbps,
      I live in Alvaston, Derby and i am 3.7miles from the exchange.

      Attenuation.............Approximate Line Length............Potential Connection Speed
      32db...................................2.3km...... ...............................16000kbps
      35db...................................2.5km...... ...............................14500kbps
      40db...................................2.9km...... ...............................11800kbps
      45db...................................3.2km...... .................................8500kbps
      50db...................................3.6km...... .................................6500kbps
      55db...................................4.0km...... .................................4500kbps
      60db...................................4.3km...... .................................3200kbps
      65db...................................4.7km...... .................................2000kbps

      If this speed doesn't improve would it be worth be changing ISP or wait until the sky max package is available in my area, to see if the speed improves.

      Any advice would be greatful
      Thanks very much
