      Ok... Any way i can get more speed?!

      Now seriously, what the hell:
      Your download speed is 144Kbps. That is 4084Kbps below the average for Sky
      Your upload speed is 87Kbps. That is 4084Kbps below the average for Sky

      144KBPS!? All this week my internet speed has been SOOOOOOOO slow.
      Could be the DLM or whatever, but it shouldnt be this slow should it?
      It's usually 5MB. But with 144KBps i can barely go on the internet.. Anything i can do to increase my speed?

      depends when it started...meant to be 10 days but most are going into the 20s...do you turn your router off? if so, that'll extend it more...

      Sometimes i turn it off/on when it doesnt connect or the speed is just going way to slow... I must have turned it off about 4 times in the past 3 days i think.

      tbh you're best off leaving it on until DLM is done - the more it goes off the longer DLM will last...
