      Question Slow upload & download speeds in essex

      Hello sky,
      i live in Braintree, Essex and for the past year i have been experiencing very poor download and upload speeds. i have recently received a new router but the speeds are not increasing, i have compared your internet speeds with friends which for example is using BT infinity. We both downloaded a game demo on the xbox 360 and my friend who is with BT took only about 10 mins to download a 1.4 GB file. Mine on the other hand took 1hr and 30 mins which i am confused and disappointed about considering the large time gap. I took a speed test with the results shown from the screen shot below and the results were alarming... so overall i would like to ask is there any way you could increase my speeds to a respectable amount and why are speeds so low in my area?

      Your friend has a Fibre connection, you have poor old ADSL, If you want to keep up with him look into getting Sky Fibre Unlimited, even if you had the best ADSL speed possible you would not get near his speed.
