      Downloaded the 10meg file highest speed was 661.9KB/s lowest was around 220, very jumpy during the download.

      That's not very good then, I get over 800 on just over half your connection speed. Have you run TCPOptimiser, link below?

      Re: **run a speedtest and post your results here**

      I am not sure if it applies to all speed tests, but with the BTO file download one you have to empty your temporary files between tests to get an accurate speed. Remember too that speedtests are not guaranteed to be accurate, they are only an indication of what you can get at that particular time. A difference of a few seconds can make a difference in the load on the servers and thus your speed. You do appear to have an issue though, all I can suggest is that you try DrTCP from the link below. Many believe that this is better than TCPOptimiser.

      I meant to add, do the Tweak test first in DrTCP

      Thanks for your help Tom dslreports.com gives a clean bill of health

      Tweak Results - dslreports.com

      All of the "slow downloads" start off at a high rate then slow down then jump between high and low.

      Dare I say it, just like exchange contention and/or throttling. I'll see how things pan out. Thanks again for your input.
