I'm on an 8 meg line and I used to get good speeds 5-8 meg any time of the day or night.

Recently during the day my speeds have slumped to around 1-2 meg. I still get full speeds after midnight. Skys stance on this is that the service is defined as "up to 8 meg" so I won't waste time calling them.

I'm downloading mainly from giganews servers, they pretty much guarantee to max out any domestic line. From work I have achieved speeds of 20 meg! So i highly doubt that they are the bottleneck.

Has anyone else noticed speeds slowing down during the day? Do sky cap "high volume" users at certain times? Or am I just unfortunate enough to be stuck on a busy exchange?

Thanks for any advice!
