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
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
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.
