Awful speed test results

  Brian2001 17:39 03 Aug 2006

I'm just checking my parents PC who are with Freenetname on the 8MB Max deal using a BT Voyager 210 router.
Just been running various speed tests and they are all reporting a download speed of around 230kbps (0.2Mbps). This is shocking!
Last month when I checked, they were getting around 1.8Mbps which was acceptable.

Does anyone have any idea what the problem could be?

Many thanks.

Possibly a contention issue, remember the kids are on holiday, so greater use is being made of the available resources at your exchange. That being said 1.8 mbs is not really acceptable from an 8 meg connection. Suggest you try in the wee small hours to see if there is any improvement.
