      well did u have adsl previosly? and if so what speed?
      and im sure if u can vie your sky router config page u can see your line status

      maybe post it here some clever soul will help

      and also hugsie found using the bt test socket that bypasses the extensions from your master socket the speed nearly doubled meaning internal wireing was at fault

      Thanks for that, I have just altered the settings on speedtest.net to kilobits and got this result



      My line should do up to 6mb so I think it is still slower then it should be and I am connected to the master socket.

      I was on NTL but I do not have test results for that, I might plug it in tomorrow and see what I get.

      have u looked at http://www.samknows.com/broadband/checker2.php

      enter your post code then check next page see what it says under locality

      or

      well issues could be further extensions if u have them i dont know if u have a faceplate with a adsl filther in built or what not but have a look at

      http://www2.bt.com/static/i/microsit...ing/noisy.html

      well step 9 is where i mean just to be sure plug adsl filter in there and router to filter because even the main socket is a extension of the underlying master test socket it basically cuts out any problems

      and only aslong as its the half cut bt socket should u open it up

      Welcome to the world of over-contended BT. 3-4mbit is fine at peak times/evenings.
