      weird situation.

      Hey, I have been using sky broadband for over a year now and not had many problems with it. When I first got it installed, I was able to reach download speeds of over 750kb/s, but over time this has steadily decreased and for the past 8 or 9 months it has stayed at 500kb/s

      Only thing is, I know somebody that recently converted over to sky broadband that lives around 4 miles away and they have been able to reach speeds of over 1mb/s. They have had speeds like this for over 3 months now.

      Any reason why somebody that lives so close to me, is able to achieve twice the speeds?

      We both have exactly the same subscription, same modem, same everything. The only difference is he connects to it wirelessly on a laptop, where as I connect via ethernet.

      This isn't too much of an issue, as I very rarely download (mainly use the internet for gaming), but bit of a concern as we both pay the same subscription prices and they seem to be getting a better service.
