Re: Slow Download Speed Or NONE

same problems here.

I have a sync at 8128Kbps.

Download speeds around 550Kbps this evening..

It's fine during the day.


I'm in a small village with it's own exchange - I doubt you all live there to so this is an issue higher in BT's network.

I'd guess an MSIL congestion issue?

I think we route through Reading/Slough from here.


Certainly a BT problem though... about time they admitted something is wrong and told us how long it's going to take to fix.
