      Crazy slow download speeds. I mean nutso slow.

      Hi. I'm new to these forums but I'll get right into it. Yesterday, my download speeds (the actual speed that you see on IE explorer/Firefox download windows) was around 100 to 130kb/s, which is average. But today I've noticed the download drop DRAMATICALLY to around 1kb/s average. The lowest I've had is 998 bytes per second. Crazy eh? I'm on SKY Max. Here are the main stats from the statistics page:


      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 8128 kbps 448 kbps
      Line Attenuation 24 db 5.5 db
      Noise Margin 9 db 25 db


      The crazy thing is, all webpages load nice and fast. It's just the downloading that's nuts.

      Your not on sky max, your on the Connect package.

      Have the speed been like it all day, or between various times ?

      I'm experiencing something similar with my line, weirdly my neighbour is saying he's having an identical issue (also with Sky LLU).

      Both lines previously working with no problems.

      We may be seeing Sky's policy of allowing truly unlimited downloads come home very quickly with people downloading the entire internet and generally slowing things down for everybody on the easynet network.

      That and the windows 7 beta has started and with 2.5 million people trying to get 2.4gigabyes onto their PC could see some drastic slow down the net as well.
      I'm a PC, and Windows 7 Backup saved my sanity when BitDefender imploded !!!

      Curious to know why the original poster thought they were on Max

      Maybe we won't get to know: first post 6 days ago and no follow up.

      More than likely sky told him he was on sky max forgetting to say connect sky max.
      Might be looking for another ISP I Wonder how many are paying 5 Someone said
      have been waiting nearly 2yrs. The 17 is meant for long term what do sky mean by long term I would say by 2012 every bt exchange should have the ability to be able to run any ISP equipment one can only hope
