      slow sky broadband

      Hi, I'm on the free sky broadband package (speed should be up to 2MB) and am getting VERY slow speeds, approx 0.4 on the speed test. Does anyone have experience of upgrading from the free service to the 5 per month service and the affect this has on the speed of connection? Is it worth it, or is the cause of my slow speed more likely to be because of old phone wires / distance to the exchange etc?

      You are going to need to give some more information than that.

      Post your router stats from the current position and also the TEST socket (see sig for details). Also, how are you connecting the router to the PCm if by wireless then try a sppedtest from this site again with a wire.
