      Slower speeds over Christmas?

      Morning All.
      Since my fibre install on the 8th of November my download speed has been a rock solid 37.5 mb/s. Over the last week or so this has dropped to 32.5mb/s. Is this because of the busy Xmas period when everyone is on the net, or have Sky cut back my speed?

      Thanks in advance

      Mine too has slowly started to drop, I don't want to reset the modem in case it syncs even lower.

      Restart the hub/router to see what your reported sync speed is. If it's still 39999 etc, it'll be a problem with Sky most likely. If the sync speed has changed, your line has degraded. It's best to just leave it - DLM should sort it out. FWIW, my connection has been stable throughout the Christmas period, attaining 36.5-38Mb and 10-15ms pings.

      Or more interference due to cheap PSU's often used in xmas lights.

      Had an issue where my speed would drop slightly after a week. Rebooted the router and everything was fine. No speed change appeared either. A strange one.
